Friends Gather Here ~ eye painting help

I've been asked many times how 
I do Annie's eyes ~ hope this helps
first I use a button to draw two perfect circles
then paint the circles (eyes) with Gesso
 I use acrylic paint for Annie's eye color
then give her eyes highlights using white paint
when dry I place the black pupil (using end of a brush)
and with a stylus the white accent
I stitch her eye lashes and 
outline her eyes with Prismacolor pencils
my newest Annie is in autumn colors
she has a hand stitched heart ornie
to match her dress ~
even a tiny burgundy dragonfly
busy watching my grandchildren
even having a sleepover this Friday
 hope to have a chance 
to work in the factory on Saturday
if I am not too exhausted   :)
God is good, He is good all the time!
Thanking Him for my family.
thanks for visiting
God bless.

  5. All your Annie's are absolutely beautiful! They have such lovely little faces and they are the best dressed rag dolls I have seen. Their clothes are really well made, all look like they are dressed in their Sunday best! I was wondering if you can post to the UK? Xxx
