Does anyone have or use a supplier for anatomically correct fish glass pupils and eyes, in the 3/16 and up sizes? Have cruised all the popular taxidermy sites, but cant find them small enough for lures.

When you were on the taxidermy sites did you see anything about making your own?Some paper,paint,epoxy drop?Just a thought in case you can't find any.I wonder if Van Dykes might make you some as they make their own, if I remember right.Might post question on a taxidermy board or contact a top notch mammal mummifying fish formaldehyder.Sorry can't help more.

I've been making some from Devcon but it's quite a chore.

Here's the layers:

1. holographic round stickers (punch out to size with belt puncher)

2. Decal print of a real fish eye

3. A small clear glass bead over the pupil (black) area, paint the back portion black, bead is embeded half-way thru hole in middle of holo sticker (to create a different reflective index part to represent eye lens; the black will show thru)

4. Drop of Devcon over all the three layers.

(to get it even more realistic you can do some concave molds where you can press the layers into)

Hope this helps.
