I personally have always been pretty iffy of the cat eyes when I see them, but I suppose you can't knock 'em until you have tried 'em... Wink
I've always thought the same thing but they were so cheap, and the animal eyes were solid in the wrong color.  Mother Necessity I guess!

Thanks so much for sharing your technique. I was trying to do something like that, but with just metallic acryllics and it just didn't turn out. I think maybe part of the trick is mixing while it's still wet? Or how did you get the natural looking flecks to turn out so nice looking? (I gave up and just went with one solid color.) Grrr, I really truly hope averyg's poppet makes it to her soon. I'm getting anxious - I hope she is well-received! Darn swap anxiety!
I'm glad to share - so many people have shared with me on this poppety adventure! 
-I used the tip of a toothpick to put in the little dots first. I did both eyes at the same time so I only have one color open at a time.  I put a big dab in a soda cap to dip from while painting.  I used 2 colors for the dots.
-While partially dry (mostly because I'm impatient) I put in the lines next, which came out pretty thick because i held my toothpick tip at an angle. 
-By the time I put in all the lines on both, I just painted everything over with the background color.  I'm sure everything was still tacky, so may have blended all together.  The dots do seem a bit bigger than they were when I first put them on. Brush lightly, and thickly! Then set aside for a day so they don't smudge.
Hope that helps!  Would love to see what you come up with!

puamelia~ those eyes are really really cool. You should sell some in your etsy!

This has been one of the most fun swaps I've been in. I've enjoyed it sooo much Smiley
Great partner...great organizer and some really awesome poppet swappy peeps.
It's been really really fun Cool
hehe, thought about that.... maybe I will if I don't use them all up first between swapping and poppeting!

And ditto! It's been my best swap yet - great people = great poppeting!

Yay for summer!

I received an amazing bellydance poppet from bobbiemay today! I love her so much.

Her outfit is incredible! She's got a really full circle skirt, choli, hipscarf and earrings.

Crazy eyes! Lol. I really love her hair - it's so soft!

Bobbiemay also sent me eyelashes, safety eyes, and... well, I'm not sure what the dangly red thing is (hip tie? necklace?) but it's really pretty and I adore it.

Thanks for the wonderful package bobbiemay!

I was wondering how bobbiemay would interpret the poppet that you wanted- I think she was quite successful!
I love her hair and her ears/ earrings- they are super cute!
And as for your extras- are those bright orange eyes? If so, those are soooo crazy! I have never seen anything like them!

I think that this gallery is honest to goodness FANTABULOUS!

I'm so glad you like your poppet blue_lalita.

averyg -  those are orange eyes. I got 12 pairs from eBay and they where every color of the rainbow. I will have to repaint most of them but they where a good deal Smiley

I really like the hair detail on the belly dance poppet!
