Hey guys. Where do you get those yellow eyes with the forward black pupils? Are these painted on, and if so, how?
Thanks again for the help.

i believe what you stated they are painted on from steady talented crasftsmen, or theres tools for the job.

Just use different size nail heads or flad end of a drill bit.
Touch in the paint, then touch it on your bait, perfact eyes every time. Then a smaller nail head or drill bit for the pupil.
Stick ons very seldom stay stuck, or they move when you're top coating..PIA's

Kellure--I was trying to get about a hundred or so, enough to make a season's worth of lure for me and my family.
Terry--I have been using that method but it seems like the eyes are very inconsistent. Maybe it is just me. I hate the painting and coating parts of the lure making process.
Thanks for the help.

I just re-read your initial ?, you asked about yellow eyes. I do not have that color. Gold is as close as I have in that style of eye. Sorry...

Found an easy way to do it. Go to Wal Mart and in the craft section where the paint is. there is a "dobber" That is what it is called. It is what you stick paint in stencils with. There is one that is the perfect size for lure eyes. It has a foam head on a wood stick. Just stick in the paint and dobb and eye. Let it dry and off set the pupil. Epoxy the finish.
