Restoring a BBE
« on: July 30, 2019, 10:37:47 PM »
I thought I wanted to make my BBE ponies into NBBE, but now I changed my mind. My Baby Heart Throb is now missing her eyes and I do not know how to put them back. I tried following KottonKandys instruction in "Restoring a BBE ~A Project For The Insane" but using a blow dryer to warm up her face does not work for me. The only result I get out of that is getting the plastic back to start crackle.

Is there anyone who know or has any idea what I can do? :work: I do not want to give up on the little darling.

Can you put her head in a plastic baggie and dunk her in warm water?  I'm thinking warm her face while keeping it dry.  I have not tried to pop BBEs back in but I recall it was not easy getting them out.  I replaced one set with google eyes and one with frog eyes.  Both a touch smaller...

Dunking the head in water or using a blow dryer, both makes the plastic more flexible, but to me it just means it caves in when I try to push the eye in, the hole doesn't get bigger.  :cry:
