So, I recently ordered a Realborn Thomas Awake sculpt and a Realborn Joseph Awake sculpt.
They both take 18mm eyes which is convenient since I already have two pairs of 18mm eyes.
As usual, I had started to paint Realborn Thomas,
I painted his lips, veins, undertones, creases etc
but I have failed to correctly mottle another baby.
This always happens to me, as far as I’m concerned, it seems as though I am unable to mottle a doll kit… that’s another story and isn’t what I am going to ask.
However, I would like to get another Realborn sculpt.
I don’t know whether to get another Realborn Thomas Awake sculpt and attempt to paint him properly or if I should get another awake kit but one that takes a larger eye size than the ones I have.
I’m interested in another Realborn Awake but ome that takes 20mm eyes and I don’t have a pair of those with me. Does anyone think that there will be an issue if I buy a doll that takes 20mm eyes for example and use my 18mm eyes on him?
As I am in the UK, there is a limited choice of Realborn kits available on eBay and the person that I regularly purchase BB kits from doesn’t have many Realborn Awake kits.
Does anyone think that the 2mm difference between the 20mm eyes and the 18mm eyes that I have will be an issue if I go ahead and buy a doll that takes eyes of that size? The reason why I’m not purchasing a 20mm pair of eyes is because there isn’t any 20mm versions of the eyes that I already have, which I really like and I think they suit the babies.
I hope you understand what I mean! ~ Forest Reborns
