I am hooked on resin eyes. I've found 3 ways to do it and each one has its different uses. All of them were made with our Brilliant Resin and Silicone Cabochons Mold, and all require layers of resin, so leave yourself at least 4-6 hours between each layer for set-up. You can compare the 3 types above and decide which you want to make, or make some of each!
These are not hard to make, but they take a bit longer to create the painted layer than other resin eye effects. You can use acrylic paint or nail polish for this technique. Make your layers as thick or thin as you'd like.
With this mold you'll be able to see how your layers are looking before pouring the next.
For these bat eyes, I simply used a piece of black plastic confetti, they make great pupils!
For these ones I cast simple eyes, then added designs with black nail polish after casting. Nail polish is more durable than acrylic paint on the outside of cast resin, and shinier too.
You can also incorporate these into costumes, book covers, or stuffies by wrapping fabric, fur, or leather around them.
You can turn them into jewelry by drilling and adding findings, or wire-wrapping them into place like this:
These were surrounded with POLYMER CLAY and baked - DO NOT try this with other resins.
