If you want to paint your furby’s eyes, you can follow the easy steps below. Read the instructions on the paint chip before starting. Make sure you do not apply too much paint, as this will ruin the furby. Apply thin coats of paint until you are satisfied with the results. When you are done, you can sunbleach the furby’s eyes to make them even more beautiful. But remember, if you are not a good painter, you may have to make mistakes. So if you do not have steady hands, read a book, or meditate.
Disassembling the eyes of your Furby is quite easy. First, open the shell of the furby. Then, unscrew all the screws holding the face piece on. You can then remove the pieces of the eyeballs and the eyelids. Next, you can nudge the silver bar that holds down the eyechips from either side. To do so, simply use the pointed end of a craft knife to pry out the pieces.
To remove the furby eyes, unscrew the small screw in the center of the faceplate. When reassembling, leave the screw out. This seems to fix the problem for good. If this method does not work, try replacing the screws with new ones. It might be better if you take your furby apart and try again later. If the problem persists, you may have to start from scratch.
You may have noticed that the fur on your Furby is chipped. You need to open the ears to get to the underlying plastic. Several small holes are located on the sides of the plastic. These hold the screws. Now, you can remove the eyechips. Be sure to clean out any traces of acetone on the skin of the furby. Otherwise, you might end up with a stained or pigmented eye.
If you want to remove the eyes from a Furby, the first step is to unthread the two small arms that hold the face plate on. A screwdriver is the easiest tool to use for this. Be careful not to cut the arms of the face plate, as they will get damaged if you try to remove them by force. However, if you are unsure of how to remove the face plate, you can use a pair of scissors to cut the arms.
Applying thin coats of paint
The best way to apply eye paint is by applying thin coats of the product. If the plastic is too smooth, the paint won’t stick as well as you’d like. Apply thin coats until the color is opaque, and then let it dry. After a few minutes, add another layer of paint, and repeat as necessary. You can use colored nail polish for this process. Alternatively, you can use clear nail polish and coat the eyes with mod podge to seal them.
Another method is the hot glue technique. To use this method, you will need a tea candle and a hot glue stick. Hold the glue stick about an inch away from the candle. Once it drips, hold the glue stick against the chipped eye until it cools. Repeat the process with another furby’s eye until the desired effect is achieved. After this process, your furby will be looking much better than before!
If you want to give your furby an extra special look, you can paint or print custom furby eyes. You will need to remove the eyechips from your furby’s eyes, however. If you don’t want to take the trouble of removing eye chips, you can buy pre-printed ones online. However, you will want to draw your eye designs before you start gluing them onto your furby’s face.
To remove the original furby eyes, you’ll need to first remove the fur from the face. Once you’ve done this, you’ll want to carefully remove the eyes, as the electronic components may be damaged by freezing. You can also try removing the eyelashes while the eyes are in the freezer. Old eyelashes should slide off easily, though some of them might be stubborn. If that happens, you can use a craft knife to cut off any stubborn pieces.
Remove the skin and shuck the eye. Then, remove the eyepieces. Be careful not to squeeze the eye rod, as it will come undone easily. You can also use a pencil to poke a tiny hole in the eye. Once you’ve removed the eyepieces, you can use a glue stick to remove the glue that holds the eyechips. Place the furby in the fridge for about an hour.
You can also use hot glue to remove the eyechips. Simply place your furby in the sun, so that the hydrogen peroxide will soften the glue and shrink the eyechips. You may have to try several times before you finally remove the chip. If you are not successful with this, you can also use a hot glue stick or paint gun. If you use a hot glue stick, make sure it is held in a high place so that it doesn’t damage the plastic eyechips.
A fandomgoer recently bought a funky furby and noticed its eyes were sunbleached. Rather than throw it away, this new owner decided to give it a new lease on life by sunbleaching its eyes. To get started, you can use a paintbrush to apply hydrogen peroxide to the affected parts of the furby’s eyes. Apply it every hour or so. It may take up to two weeks to fully convert the fur. If you do not want to apply the dye to the whole furby, you can put the Furby in a sealed container and place it in the sun. If possible, use a lid that covers the furby’s face and other exposed areas.
Dyeing furby eyes with permanent marker
One of the easiest ways to change the look of your Furby is by dying the eyes. This method is quick, easy, and requires a permanent marker and a hair dryer. To get started, cut the Furby’s hair into small sections. Comb them flat and away from the areas you plan to dye. Once the fur is flat, you can dye the eyes of your Furby. To do this, first, skin the Furby’s head. Then, use a paint wash, which is diluted acrylic paint. The paint wash should be runny, not thick.
This method works with all Furbies, including babies and Shelbies. Some have a code printed on the label, so follow the directions for the one you have. You can also use toothpaste to fix scuffed glass eyes. Remember to use a soft bristled toothbrush to remove the toothpaste, as brushing too hard can leave micro-scratches. This method can also be used on non-Furby toys to give them a new look.
To begin, you will need to remove the eyechip from the Furby’s head. To do this, first, remove the eyechips. If the eyes are stuck on by glue, you may need to shuck the eye to remove them. Once you’ve done this, you can then apply the hydrogen peroxide with the help of a paintbrush. Once it dries, place the Furby in the sun. Make sure that you move it back and forth for an hour or so to let the dye take effect.
