In an effort to customize my factory Blythe dolls, I really wanted to eliminate as much "shine" on the face as possible. It was very simple and surprisingly quick to get a more matte look just by using a Magic Eraser!
Along with the shine, the face paint on the cheeks was removed too. There is no way to avoid this because you are working over the entire cheek area.
In order to brighten Clea's eyes, I simply used clear coat over the eye chip.
Basic nail lacquer changed out her lip color quickly.
Next I hope to straighten her hair for a smoother look and add color/shading around the eyes.
