Default Amazing prop eyes

I found this video for painting eyes. I tried it myself, using cabochons from Dollar Tree (the ones that are meant to go in flower vases and 5 colors of nail polish (rather than the 10 in the video) and it looks amazingly good. I spent about an hour making two pair of eyes, so it doesn't really take that long. Basically, you're painting the back of the glass with nail polish, scratching some of it off, painting more, scratching, painting more . . .

This is an awesome video and hope you were able to download it. I completely understand the offpeak internet thing! I love living in the sticks but the internet options are something to be desired.

Definitely a painstaking technique but the results are worth it.
