Okay -- I think this set of eyes will work better. I gave them a backing coat of the white spray paint but it is not dry enough yet for me to pick them up and really look at them...I tried a quick peek and I like them (so far).
|This is how the new glass gem eyes looked before they got spray painted white on the back.|
|IF the eyes work out, I think it is time to bring this guy out of the shadows and change him for the show I am considering submitted work to.|
|I think one of the things I was not terribly happy with was the plaster cloth eyes that I made for him in his first stage.|
|This is the first pair of eyes (that I won't be using for this project) -- I think I can change the head enough to have the second pair of glass gem eyes work.|
|Yeah...I think I could do it and be happy with it...so that if I DO submit him to the quickly approaching deadline show and he doesn't make it in I will still like him anyway.|
