Changing eyes

Post by Sandie Girl »

Hi ladies. Just wondering if anyone can help. I have partial silicone Elyse and I don't like her eyes. They are meant to be peeky but her eyes are too open. Should smaller eyes be put in so they close more? Thank you :heart:

I have changed eyes on my silicones before, but you have to be very careful because you can rip the silicone in the corners. I know this because the first time I did it I created a tiny slit in the corner of one of the eyes. I have to say I myself don't like the huge eyes that some use on their dolls they just make the doll look bug eyed.

You can do two things. You can take them out and put smaller ones in OR you can take them out and remove some of the silicone behind the eye. The second option you can put bigger eyes in and they set deeper in the socket. Like mentioned above be careful of ripping the sides of the eyes.
