I’ve posted a couple of tutorials on how to make realistic eyes for your props, but the one that Sytnathotep posted over at HauntForum may be the easiest yet. This method only produces a half of an eye, but sometimes that’s more than enough. Before you get started on this you’re going to need to print and cut your iris to fit the circumference of your round palettes.
Once you’re ready to start it’s just a matter of pouring some of the epoxy into the palette, making sure to leave a little room for another pour. Place your iris face down into the palette and push it slightly into the epoxy making sure that it’s completely covered, then add enough epoxy so it’s completely level with the top of your palette. That’s all there is to it! Once they’re dry, just pound them out of the palette and you’re good to go.
Items needed to complete this include:
- Plastic paint palettes
- Smooth-On’s Epoxy Cast 690
