The secret to Blythe Custom Teeth.
Alas, after 4 years, I have resurrected this blog! For some time I thought it was a bit redundant just showing pretty pictures. I use Instagram for that. However, it occurred to me that I could show you my methods, tools, and techniques to my Blythe customs.
The last time I posted here, anytime I made a girl with teeth, I used bits of a gift card or other plastic card. As long as it was white, I could cut to shape and glue them in.
But as with anything to do with Blythe customs, things evolve and now customizers are using other materials to make Blythe teeth.
I actually went on a google search for how to make teeth for Blythe customs that look more like the desired pearly whites. I couldn’t find specific instructions.
Taking notes from other Blythe customs…
Luckily, I did acquire a Blythe custom doll with teeth and was able to peek inside. I could tell it was some kind of polymer clay and went from there.
Check out my most recent toothy girl, Bappy! (Her mom has renamed her Trixie…)
Her teeth are made from Fimo clay. It is translucent and is perfect for making teeth. All you have to do is make individual teeth shaped to size.
Try and do a dry fitting to get an idea of how it will sit and then bake according to package instruction. You have to really watch it to make sure not to burn it. I think it took less than 10 minutes at 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
After it’s dry, you can test again to make sure they will fit. Then I gloss them with a glossy sealer like this one.
My favorite glue to use for attaching this, as well as eyechips, is Aleen’s Tacky Glue Fast Grab. It has the right consistency and it stays in place right away but you still have time to adjust the teeth.
So that’s the quick and dirty on Blythe teeth. If I get some request, I can show more details on install the teeth and what it looks like on the inside.
Let me know in the comments if that’s something you all would like to see.
That’s it for now!
Have a Happy Doll day!
