    Dark brown pastel applied with a 10/0 brush works for me. You have to be careful with pens, even though they are supposed to be permanent, certain varnishes, particularly acrylics, make them run.

    CHEERS!

    Yep,

    Mix brown with a little bit of black (paint that is) and lightly go over the underside of the upper eye...and No it won't like like eye liner due to the scale of these figures...


    Here is a repainted head i have done using this method...
