I used a My Scene doll for this project. other dolls will work just the same.
Now this is for a zombie doll key chain but you can just paint it however ya want really and make a key chain out of it just the same :)
First of all you're gonna want to keep the head on the barbie until you're done painting because it makes it a LOT easier. :)
Alrighty, so the first step is kind of optional. Wipe off the doll's makeup by using nail polish remover so she is easier to paint.
Second step is to paint the doll's face as your base color, I'm using white and it TAKES ABOUT THREE TO FIVE COATS to make it a solid white.
use whatever base coat color you want :)
I couldn't get a good picture of how I make the splattered blood effect so I made one that is hopefully understandable.
Take the brush and hold it strait out, then just repeatedly push it down on the doll's face. (wetter for more gore blood, dryer for more splattery blood)
So I'm just going to explain the eyes since the rest is basically just mashing a SMALL brush on her face for blood effect.
For the eyes I took a dab of paint on a very small wet brush. the size of the paint drop was about the size of the tip of a pin.
I swooshed it around in the eye and took a separate wet brush (small)and dabbed away the paint (more toward the middle where I wanted it to be whiter)
OK! Now just go at her head with a blow dryer to make that it's completely dry. Then PULL! After her head is off you should have something like this..(this next part is fun >:D)
NOW CUT HER THROAT, BASH HER IN! (lol Lord of the flies moment sorry)
But yes proceed by cracking open her hard shell by bashing it with a hammer until you get this sucker out!
Then arm your key ring and put it through that hole. then shove it back inside her noggin. And then Holly Keychain Batman! you're done! :D
