    Budget cosplayer here! If you’re someone like me who grinds their teeth a lot, you probably have a TON of “mold yourself” retainers/ mouth guards. Well! It’s the same stuff as the pellets! Just cut a few up (the old ones) and cook them as stated in the video!!! Works like a charm! Make myself a fake eye in under 10 minutes!!

  4. Just received Ellimorph in the mail and I’m so happy with my purchase! Just a question though, does it take longer to heat up if it’s in larger chunks

    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

      Ducky Then just do neither. Make it sort of long, but not too long.

    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!
