Make perfect stick on eyes

4 posts in this topic

I have one heck of a time trying to paint eyes. What ever

I am using will to paint with will slip and make a mess.

So, I have figured out a way to make my own stick on eyes

with a hole punch and plastic colored tape.

You can buy hole punches up to 2" in dia. All we need

here is a 3/8" , a 1/4" and a 1/8" and in some cases maybe

a 1/2". Plastic tape comes in many different colors. So you

can see you can make the eye one color and the pupil another. Stick them together and stick them on the bait. so simple.

Try using the erasers on cheap wooden pencils. Sand them down to the diameters you want and dot away. Also works for shad spots, rogue eyes, etc. Pic attached shows results.

Good job Dave! I bought some pencils to give it a try.

What type of paint seems to work the best??

I use the same Createx paints that I shoot thru my airbrush...but will work with just about any paints.
