OK ...I have re read this topic....Shelli, I had the hardest time finding metallic nail polish so your suggestion to look at Michaels for the "little pots on card board thingamajigs " really helps . Of course, I already went over board buying nail polish colors...maybe I can give to my older granddaughters this Christmas...LOL
What I understand is... sealing the acrylic eye paint with nail polish or model car laquer as the last coat will keep the paint from messing up...after you have fray checked the fabric hole.
Now for a question ....can you Super glue the sealed eye back to the fabric to keep the eye from shifting ? I should think not... but has anyone had the wonderful experience of trying this then finding out it screwed up all their hard work ? LOL...Winney
I went to Walmart-Grant's Pass yesterday- (my quarterly visit) and got 3 different metalics in goldish colors, one glitter in white and a set of 6 "chrome" colors- so if my Walmart had it wouldn't Medford's?
I had the lady who stocks the section help me look, cuz, golly, they were spread out all over the place.
Also I got some 'glitter' paint for the air brush and I was thinking maybe that would be interesting...
hope that helps
In the May 12th post with the closeups, I also noticed that bear's eyelids appeared to either be painted or were of some fancy cord. In another post somewhere I read where you graciously shared your method of using leather cord for eyelids. Can the leather be painted as well somehow to coordinate with the eyes?
I'm nowhere near ready to try some of this, but have to ask while I'm thinking of it or .... Pooof, gone!
