Creating Life-Like Baby Tears

By Cindy Parker-Katz

of www.babydollart.com

Aleenes Paper Glaze (called Baby Tears) is a wonderful product that brings your doll to life.

The realism it adds to the eyes is amazing. It

has many special properties, one being that

it stays exactly where you put it! This allows

you to use it in different areas of the face to

express the feeling you want your baby to convey. Baby Tears dry crystal clear and

can be layered for more depth. Another great advantage is that you can use it on

the vinyl itself. This allows you to add tears, moisture to the lips, the mouth and

even a little to the nose if you want it to look like it is a little runny.

One problem many artists have is they use too much of a product when trying to

make it look natural. Some times when using the wet look for tears the baby ends

up looking sick or unnatural. You can add more layers with this product if it doesnt

give you the look you want, but start with a light touch. Remember: do not put

the doll in the oven once the glaze is applied.

Closed Eyed Babies

Step 1

With a closed eyed baby use the baby tears right out of the bottle through the

tiny hole in the top. Or, for added control use a toothpick and put a drop of Baby

Tears on the tip.

Supplies Needed

Baby Tears

Cotton Tipped Applicators

Filbert Paint Brush

Genesis Drying Gun

Step 2

Spread a thin layer of Baby Tears into the crease of

the eyes before rooting or adding eye lashes.

The crease of the closed eye gets a little extra shine

making it look like a touch of moisture. You may

want to leave a little extra glaze at the inner corners

or outer corners of the eyes for added realism. Make

sure you let it dry thoroughly before adding lashes.

Before Inserting

Eyes

Step 1

Though its not required, it is

easiest to put glaze on the eyes

before placing them in the eye

socket.

Step 2

Let the glaze dry completely. Add another layer of

glaze if desired.

Adding More

Realism

Step 1

For additional realism, before

you add the glaze, paint a

bright red spot with genesis

heat set paints on the white of

the eyes.

Step 2

Set the paint with the Genesis drying gun.

Step 3

Coat the entire eye with the glaze and let it dry

thoroughly.

Step 4

Insert the eyes into a newborn doll and turn the

eyes to your desired location before gluing in

place.

For Eyes Already Inserted

If you want a wet look in the eyes and they are

already inserted in the head, you can still add

Baby Tears.

Step 1

To make the baby

look sad or crying,

make sure the glaze

is on the bottom

ledge and corners of

the eyes as shown

above.

Step 2

You can also put a

few drops rolling down the cheek to simulate

tears by using a toothpick or paint brush to

create tears.

Removing Glaze

If you make a mistake you can always remove

the glaze. I like to use a non-acetone nail polish

remover.

Step 1

Using a cotton tipped applicator will help you to

stay in control of where you put the nail polish

remover. Put a drop of remover on the pointy

cotton tip.

Step 2

Touch the cotton tip on the glaze you want

removed. Let it sit for a few seconds and then

wipe it off with the dry round end of the cotton

tipped applicator.

This takes practice but can be done without any

paint removal. If any paint does come off you

can always touch it up with genesis paints and

set it with the Genesis drying gun.

Adding Shine to Lips

Step 1

To add a lifelike shine to the lips, after the

painting is finished, take your clean filbert brush

and put a dab of Baby Tears on the tip.

Step 2

Start in the corner of the lips at the deepest part

and spread the glaze around from corner to

corner.

Step 3

Pull the glaze upward and downward on the lips

to the edges staying inside the lip lines. For a

drooling look go outside of the lip lines.

TIP: When glazing an open mouth have a little

extra glaze sitting in between the lips and the

gums - not too thick or it will look cloudy. The

tongue should always look wet.

Clean the brush with nonacetone

nail polish remover

and wipe dry. Wash in soap

and water. Put a pin in the

hole at the top of the glaze

bottle to keep the glaze

from clogging or drying

out.

Remember to take your

time, practice, and have fun

with it. You will be bringing

to life your own original,

one of a kind, adorable, life

like piece of art!
