My first go at lip carving. Basically get a small file & scrape. I did have difficulty with symmetry, especially the nostrils. I took kept referring back to the photo of the finished lips I wanted to achieve. I am thinking of adding teeth. I haven't been able to find much information on this. I wasn't sure if they are carved as well or added somehow. From what I can gather vampire teeth are carved into the lip, normal teeth are added later, modeled out of Fimo, so I am going to give that a go.
To remove the eyes from inside the eye lids you have to "carefully unclip the white arc" It was really tricky, but I got there eventually. I did not continue & takes eyes apart as I did not see the reason. I 'boggled' the eyelids. I painted the eyelids white with the boys War Hammer paint, then coated them in tacky glue & dipped them in glitter. Then I coated them in dimensional magic to keep the glitter on. Removing the eyelashes was easy, just dampen & pull. I replaced them new ones from the $2 shop, much better. Second pair of handmade eye chips inserted. My new wigs are on there way here...yay ebay again.
In other news. We are rearranging the kids rooms. Nicola wants a rainbow room, so this weekend we did some DIY art. The first one is from Pinterest- melted crayons. They are just Warehouse crayons. I took the wrappers off as I was worried about them burning. Mine isn't as neat as the original, but I still think it is cool. The second one needs her name written across the pink stripe still. The third is Nicola's art about where rainbows come from. The fourth is a t-shirt we made using the die I bought at Scotties the other week. Nicola's design, mum just behind the needle, hehe.
