Polymer Clays Eyes

Today, I worked on a tutorial for making polymer clay eyes. These little buggers are so much fun to make. I made fourteen pairs of eyes, that's twenty-eight eyeballs altogether. They are about the size of dime. I still have a long way to go the tutorial and since I have never done one quite so big, I don't know when I'll be done with it. But needless to say, I hope to be done soon. The picture was taken just before they went into the oven.

And speaking of eyes, Forest Rogers has a new sculpt posted on her blog. It is a unicorn with really awesome eyes.

Happy Dollmaking,

Love the eyes! Do you plan on selling them? I would be interested in buying a pair.

I might be shooting myself in the foot here but have you thought about making your tutorial a mini-class over at Doll Street? The $$ would help buy more clay for eyes!!!

These are some of the best 'home made' eyes I've seen!

That's an excellent idea Judi. It is true that I sell dolls just so I can buy more supplies to make more dolls...and you get the idea. It's never about making big bucks is it.

Ute, I'll send you an email.

I'd be interested! After the move and I get sorted out again of course. :)

No offense, I think it is really cool and all.....

But I will be seeing those eyes in my nightmares...

Dear Robert,

Oh dear me! I don't want to give you bad dreams. Here, just think of cute pink fuzzy bunnies and rainbows. Hope that helps. :)
