Painted Annie Doll Eye Tutorial


I was asked to give an eye painting tutorial on my blogthese instructions and pictures are included in my 18 inch and 16 inch Annie doll patterns sold on Etsy
~~~

GIVING ANNIE HER FACE 

pin two buttons on Annie's face where you want her eyes
with a pencil, lightly trace around the buttons
this helps you make Annie’s eyes the same size

then draw a small triangle for her nose, lightly draw her mouth and eye brows and lashes






using Gesso or white paint, paint the circle of Annie’s eyes first















with green, blue or brown paint, paint Annie’s eyes








with a liner brush, give some white highlights in her eyes
I alternate between white and her eye color to blend the highlights






when Annie’s eyes are dry
use the base of a paint brush dipped in black paint for Annie’s pupil 
and a stylus dipped in white paint for the gleam in her eyes




after all is dry, I hand stitch her nose, eye brows and lashes, and her mouth
or
use a Micron pen or Faber Castell pen to draw these features
~~~

hope this helps
thanks for visiting
God bless
