3 designs to choose from

2 x 8mm blank/customisable white plastic eyes
1 x complete set of lip sync decals

Size: 50mm x 50mm x 45mm (approx - designs vary slightly).
Guidance for use:
First glue the 6mm ball onto the 10mm stud with a permanent thread lock. Leave for 12 hours in a warm place. Next glue the ball and stud into the hole at the base of the head (neck) with a 2 part epoxy resin glue. Leave to cure for 1 hour.
Heads are ready to prime and paint. We recommend acrylic colour followed by a matte clear coat (to protect from discolouration and grease when animating).
Add hair with airdry/oven bake clay (the nylon is heat proof to80℃ / 176℉ degrees ) or faux hair – the decision is yours.
Drill pin holes into eyes if required with a needle pin vice (available here).
Paint coloured iris and pupils onto the white eye balls with an enamel modelling paint and leave to dry for recommended time.
Secure 8mm white plastic eyes into place with a touch of Vaseline/wax to the back of the socket. The viscus bond between the socket and the eye will prevent the ball from popping out but also allow ease of movement while animating.(Additional eyes are available here).
EYE BROWS AND EYE LIDS
Sculpt and animate eye brows and eye lids with plasticine. Customise, sculpt and animate with our animators sculpting set here.
LIP SYNC DECALS
Use the full set of lip sync decals while animating your lip sync. Create more using black electricians tape. Simply draw the shape of the mouth you require onto black electricians tape and cut out with a scalpel. Add teeth and tongues with other colours of tape! Electricians tape is available here.
