I’ve been burning some cataract eyes in the oven, but it’s my own fault: I didn’t follow the recipe quite exactly enough.
It all started when I was eyeing some glass doll eyes for sale on Etsy. They’re gorgeous, so lifelike and priced as such. Luckily, I discovered a tutorial online for making eyes from polymer clay that’re comparable to glass ones. They warned me to use the liquid Fimo, but with a gift card in my pocket and instant gratification in my mind, I purchased the liquid Sculpey at my local Pearl Fine Art Supply.
I’m still not done experimenting with the liquid Sculpey, but as you can see from the tutorial linked above, the liquid Fimo comes out a whole lot better: glossier with less bubbles.
