I’ve been getting requests for coloured eyes in my shop. I don’t know if you’ve seen them, but most of them look really awful – the colours are so vivid it makes them look like they are staring. I bought some brown ones and I couldn’t use them for anything because they look so scary:
Black eyes and scary brown eyes
I’ve come up with a better solution – clear plastic eyes:
Advantages of clear eyes:
- Paint the flat back of the eye with acrylic paint to get the exact shade you want.
- Feeling artistic? Create customized eyes with paint effects – paint spots, stripes, starbursts etc on the back of the eye first, let it dry, then coat the entire back of the eye with the base colour.
- Don’t like painting? No problem! Just cut a square of felt a little larger than the eye, snip a little cross shape in the middle to poke the shaft of the eye through, then trim the felt so it is the same size as the eye – easy!
Make any shade of eyes using subtle- or bright-coloured felt!
So, my question for you today is, would you be interested in buying these clear eyes if I stocked them in the PlanetJune shop? (They would cost approx the same as the black eyes I already carry.) Please vote below so I can get an idea of interest! If you want to add any additional info (e.g. what sizes would you like to see?) please leave me a comment too!
Update: the poll is now cloased – that you for voting! Here are the results:
