I just want to know (if it's no problem to tell me) where can I find the gloss paint, 'cause I was looking for it and couldn't find it.

Thanks a lot and have a nice day ^^

Amazing! That's a really really good idea! To buy doll eyes is so expensive! Now I can make them myself! Thanks for the idea! :hug:

old lens...awesome idea,thanks:floating:
glitterfaecat Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2010
Really cool tutorial!Some of the larger eye balls can be very costly. Now if I can find the things you used as the clear lense in a craft store! I hope they come in different sizes as I have obitsu dolls and they use really tiny eyes.
sazuoche Featured By Owner May 2, 2010
Thanx for tutorial!
It's almost like the tutorial from Yoshida Style! But I think it;s combination from Yoshida n Aimi doll!
Snakefang101 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2010
what do you mean by a lense? like a contact lense?
hookrat Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
lol just realized you asked this over a year ago and not last week. Hope you found what you needed!
hookrat Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Try looking up round smooth top cabochon. That's what I found and I think it'll suit the purpose.
xLoveLiesBleedingx Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2009
I've looked at this tutorial about a million times! I love it so much!

And to help people looking for the parts:
For people living in the US, Hobby Lobby and most craft stores carry the pieces you are looking for. You'll want the circular flat-back rhinestones. I'm not sure of what size though. And for the white part of the eyes, I would recommend finding some plastic round beads.

I'd use some white clay that you could shape to customise to your lens and doll eye hole. It's more convenient that all that filing!
hookrat Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Round cabochon also works (perhaps better because it's a pain to find non beveled rhinestones). Thanks for the tip! It makes sense now :)
Dirtydingus-McGee Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2011
Wow! thank you so much for clearing up what the 'lens' were! XD I've been trying to make my own doll eyes for a while now and I never had any clue what that could be. :D

hi! great tutorial, i've been wanting to make one of this dolls but i can't seem to find a tutorial or something on how to make one, do you know where can i find one?
vannylla Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2009  Professional General Artist
Hey,I was browsing through the comments for informations on this tutorial and found your post, hope you don't mind my intromission.

You can find the proper names of products on [link] at the workshop area.
And, although it's in japanese, there's this site here [link] that have the most detailed tutorial I've seen so far.
I can't understand what's written, but there are so many pictures of the process, that the only things that would be necessary to know are the products names, wich we can find somewhere else.

Hope it helps, good luck on your project!~♥

nice tutorial!!

;_; but, i dont know where buy the materials...specifically the what tipe of store i can find it?
Mischavie Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Oh wow! That looks amazing on the finished product! I'd love to make eyes like that for my figures!

I'm guessing you used clay that was air-dried, right? Because I'd imagine the eye would deform if you baked it...
chic-a-cherry-cola Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2007
Yay! Now I dont have to buy the eyes for my new Obitsu!
SweetCandyDreams Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2007
Do U have some tutorial with making HEAD of your doll ?
Beyoncefanny Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2007
WOW that is great!!
Really, I want to make myself a dollfie completly custom made
Gaahh i'm so excited about this tutorial!
Penguin-sama Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2007
Hi, those clear lenses, where did you get them?
HypotheticalBlush Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2007
Would you be able to tell me the size (prefferably in pixels) of the eyechips you make? I'd like to offer them to the DoA crowd, but I'm afraid what I am making is too small.
