How using Epoxy Putty can enhance your Blythe Custom Doll…
Ok I’ll give away my secret! She’s been modded with epoxy putty! Hopefully you can’t tell. Her eyes were made more deep-set and a little smaller.
I’ve been experimenting for ways to reshape and make my Blythe Custom Dolls more unique and one of a kind. Besides carving and reshaping lips and around the mouth and nose, everything else on the Blythe face-plates is pretty tricky to customize. Not much plastic is left to mod and reshape.
Enter in Tamaya Epoxy Putty!
I have only used it on two dolls and it has been quite labor intensive learning curve but I’m happy with the results. If you notice, the eyes one both dolls are a little smaller and more deepset.
I played around with putting the putty around their eyes and then sanding and shaping to blend in with the rest of the face-plate. It took a lot of trial and error but eventually everything came together and I’m thrilled with the results.
I’m currently working on a 3rd doll. As I get better at it, I will share instructions on how to work with the epoxy putty to customize your own doll. Until then, enjoy some photos of my Epoxy girls. The red headed Ginny pictured below is for sale here in my Etsy Shop.
Thanks for looking and have a Happy Doll Day!
