    Tears

    just another quick question about eyes. I was on the Monster Lab gallery recently and came across an amazing sculpt by a guy named Arturo Balseiro. It was an alien type bust and it was so realistic that it was creepy. http://www.themonsterlab.com/gallery...o/gallery.html (3rd one down) What really grabbed my attention was the eyes. they seemed to have almost a film over top of them making them not as smooth and shiney as glass eyes on their own. like tears connecting the eye ball to the eye lid or something. I dont expect to have my sculpt as crazily detailed as that (although I will try ) , but I'd like to try to get that look as far as the eyes go. Has anyone tried putting a clear coat over glass eyes to achieve that? is there something else I can use? The glass eyes I have look good on their own, but i think that would make them that more real looking. Thanks again. I'll post pictures on mine when its a little further along

    I haven't done it with glass eyes but I have with my homemade fimo eyes. I'd expect it's most likely clear acrylic.

    I use a five minute epoxy to give a glassy shine over eyes i make, available in most hardware stores in a two part mix, just squeeze out eqaul parts mix together and paint over the eye using a cheap paintbrush,just watch out for brushstrokes, and bin the brush when its done, you don't need a lot, and do it with good ventilation as it does stink a bit before it sets.
