You'll also need

- Glitter - anything can work from chunky to fine, but I don't recommend cheap craft glitter (like the stuff they sell kids to make posters), as it can bleed in resin.

- Paper towels

- Whatever findings, costume, or stuffy supplies you'll need to complete your project.  The Button Shanks are only needed if you're making buttons or eyes for a creature or costume.  They will help you sew it in place.

How-To:

The video above is a complete tutorial for making 3 types of cast resin eyes.

I am sooooo hooked on making resin eyes.  I've found 3 ways to do it, each has its 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! This post is all about Glittery Eyes!

These are easy to make by mixing either opaque colorants or glitters into the resin for each layer.  You can use fine or chunky glitters, and even different shapes of glitter, depending on what effect you're going for.  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.



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:



This one was printed on our Clear Photo Film, and surrounded with POLYMER CLAY and some fake eyelashes!
