How to Give Your Apple Doll Eyes

After carving your Apple Head and letting it dry, you can add eyes and paint it to give it more character.

sharp knife, acrylic paint, paint brush, sealant, beads

Use a sharp knife to cut a tiny horizontal slit where each eye will be.  Next, create a cavity by using the end of the paintbrush to make the slit more open and round.

Paint the inside of the cavity with white paint.

Insert a bead into the cavity.  Use the end of the paintbrush to move the bead into position.

Apply a big glob of sealant to each eye to lock the beads in place.

Optional:  use paint to change the color of the iris/bead.  You can also use black paint to paint the inside of the bead/pupil.
