Hello! I customize blythe dolls for both fun and for some profits. So far I have been doing it for just a little over year. I started when I was 15 and my first doll was quite terrible (as I wasn’t very careful), but I got better and better with every doll,and have now done 20+ dolls. So here is a tutorial for re-coloring or customizing the lips of a Blythe doll, hope you like it!
Gather your supplies: Blythe, fine-grit sanding sponge, a small flat paint-brush and a bigger softer paint-brush, chalk pastels in a lighter and darker color, and watercolor-pencils in a darker color and white.
Sand off the original lip color (you may have to scrape the paint in the crease away with a some-what dull x-acto knife). With the small paint-brush, brush the darker pastel color in the crease of the lips and lightly outward.
Use the darker watercolor-pencil to define the crease and add some lip wrinkles.
Use the white watercolor-pencil to add texture with quick strokes, and lightly color with it to blend with the darker color.
Brush the lighter color pastel on with the bigger paintbrush and you’re done!
… and it make take a few tries to get it right, so don’t get frustrated! 😉
