So, here is my first go at eye decal attempts. It turned out smooth and non flaky... so I thought I show everyone what I did.

Hope this helps someone!

Also if needed, check out ~Asenva on YouTube - she also has a tutorial - [link]

Something to share, post eye-decal. If your head isn't on the doll yet, take care when putting on the head so that you don't bend or crack the decal.

Warm the neck hole for a few minutes with a hair dryer. Push the head down carefully so you don't bend or flex the vinyl. The first time I put my bitty bitsu head on the doll I cracked the eyes. I didn't realize I'd bent the head quite so much. Oops!

I put a dab of water down and smoothed them back out again (and re-sprayed more MSC) but still.

Thanks so much Arakis! :iconiloveitplz:

can you use any other sealer like mod podge of a clear spray paint or is MSC something special for dolls

I only recommend MSC. It's not going to damage resin. I'd avoid anything else.

Good Tutorial!! I would like to know what is their exact size...can I use them on the bigger dolls too? I mean I would like to try them on my 30" baby doll as I don't want to change her eye-balls so will try sticking these eyes...but from the Junky spot site I did not know if I can buy bigger Decals...Thanks : )

Thanks. And I have no idea about putting them on a baby doll, as far as sizes go you can check around on eBay for more. Just look for Eye decals :)

Thanks for your reply...if you don't mind...I would
like to know the length and width of these eye decals
you baught from junkyspot.com as they say on their web-site
for 27 c.m. dolls which is hard to understand how big the eyes actually are...
thanks : )

Where do you get the decal paper? I know one can print their own designs.

I had never seen this, I'm kinda scared of decal eyes since... I have no ide how to use them XD
sdrcow's avatar

Yeah I'm not fond of them, they crack and break too easy. :/
lajvio's avatar
lajvioHobbyist Photographer
the decal break easily you say? :O
sdrcow's avatar
sdrcowHobbyist Photographer
yeah they seem to crack easily because of the soft rubber - so once they dry they are pretty easy to mess up =x Maybe on a solid item they'd be ok. But an Obitsu head isnt the best IMO

that don't sound good at all :O Thankfully obitsu is not a doll I really want :) The vinyl dolls I want is all very expensive dollfie dreams... ^^; why oh why must I fall for all the expensive and very hard to get dolls?
