    How many grams do you use for an eye? I'm making 28mm gorilla eyes but never worked with this before.

    yarn..YARN! brilliant! So much easier than paint and latex. <3 this channel. p.s. Why not use a glosscoat varnish? Seems that would come out smoother. (though I use nail polish since I always have it on hand lol)

    YouTube sucks for not showing me your channel sooner. You should have sooo many more subscribers. Your tutorials are clear, clean and well shot. Great for those who are new to sfx as well as more seasoned folks. You've got great easy ideas some of which i hadn't even thought of. Keep up the great work :)

    At this point, should the eye be waterproof? For a scene I have planned for an upcoming movie I'm working on, it involves jars of medical oddities--like collected teeth and eyes, and I know the eyes would be suspended in some kind of solution.

    What if made a little slot to put in your face and put it in and if you were trick or treating you can have it in normally and when they ask what you are say you are a cat and turn around to get cat ears out of your bag and pop it out while your turned around to scare the heck out of them!!

    If you're nearsighted or farsighted and want a bit more realism, adjust the shape of the eye. Nearsighted: longer shape Farsighted: shorter shape

  64. Thanks for the awesome tutorial! I can use this to prank the prep class in my school, Because every time they touch my things in my desk so I will now have a box saying '' do not open this box'' if they did they will see this fake eye + I probably will put fake blood on it to make it look real!

    If you have a small egg cup and gelatine, you can do this, then build the other side up with liquid latex and set again in the mood.

    hej! älskar att ni tar fram det bra med dessa material! håller själv på mycket med latex,. Jag såg att ni hade ett ark av latex som ni klippte ur. har ni gjort det arket själv eller köpt det färdigt så? jag försöker själv tillverka egna på köksbordet men de där såg super smidigt ut! bra jobbat!
