and the easy way ...
but i fell a little ridiculous to publish this on my web , everybody knows how to make the soul is the same , so there is nothing new , i will put on the tutorial section , my way and i hope you all like , and i hope help someone discover something new LOL..

Those eyes are GORGEOUS :shock: :shock: :shock:

One question though :roll:
I don't have a heat gun so what can I do
to bring up the crystal clear effect?

Thanks Eneida for a PERFECT tutorial :D :D :D

Very cool! Thank you so much for this awesome tut :-) Along with Yovanka's question above, I have a couple too... I am having a hard time seeing the entire tutorial on my screen because the right side of several of the images are cut off. So you print these babies out on transparency film, and push them onto the clay slices, Step 7 and 11 I can't see - do you put anything on them to give them that glassy domed look? or does that happen after baking them and setting them with the heat gun? What do you mean by globe effect in step 9? I think I am missing something because I can't see all the steps on my screen :-( Thanks so much Eneida, this is way cool! :-)

let me see yovanka
if you make teh flat eyes it´s much more easy
cause you will use less fimo gel , and less fimo gel means less time to open this bright
so you can put for 140ºC on conventional oven but open every minut to check out if they are bright enought.
use this mix fimo white , fimo quick and fimo trnaslucent ...
don´t put prosculpt on your mix , cause prosculpt will change the color and your eyes will not be white ..LOL
but fimo suports a lillte better the heat , is only fell minuts more on the oven and feel seconds with the heat gun ...
don´t try this with round balls eyes they will over bake but will not open bright cristal clear on fimo gel ....
I know you can do anything you want!

Xena you can take this images for youu
with the right bottom clic the right bottom.
look
roll until the final of the tutorial
there are a little thing i don´t know the name and you can scroll for the right side of you screen and you can see all the tutorial ...

anyway you need put fimo gel on the eyes in each one ..
and the globe efect is the lens ok?
you need make this step only 2 times
the first time , needs be a little flat not to round
the second you will get the "globe" efect ..
the heat gun only make the lens super transparent and bright . it´s a tip.LOL

Awesome, thanks soooo much Eneida!!!

Ive been messing with different eye techniques for a while and the one I came up with is ALMOST like this one, except I printed mine on regular paper and used an upside down nailhead to make a dip in the ball, but I like your version alot better, they look sooo much better lol

Thank you so much for sharing this Eneida! Your eyes are beautiful! You do such beautiful work sweetie!

I have actually tried this technique before, I also found the regular paper to be difficult. Do you use the plastic transparency paper, or transparent regular paper?

:)

Hey there, I gotta little secret for everyone now that we are all searching for eye images thanks to Enedia's lovely tutorial... LOL

Well, some of you may already know, but I have been a renderocity junkie for years. I just remembered all the Poser images available through them for eyes, because I also get a lot of my wings from there too....

Go to this link and search for "Eyes" also search for "Glassy Eyes" "Realistic Eyes" "Fairy Eyes" be creative with your searches, you will be surprised to see how many packs you can get for CHEAP. This is where I have been getting my stuff for years, it is 100% safe and their products are fantastic... here is an example of some eyes I got from there...

Image
Image
Image

Make sure you look to see if the pack you want is supported by your software, most graphics programs will allow you to use most files just double check before buying. Don't get textures or anything that you can't use without Poser or one of the other programs.

Here is the link to the market:
http://market.renderosity.com/

If you go to buy, you do have to set up an account, but it is SOoooo worth it!

We are all having a lot of fun! Thanks again Eneida :-)

guess what i discovered last night thanks to eneida? if you have any nasty accidents with eyes after baking and need a quick fix
print out eyes as before and use thin layers of embossing powder and heatgun, they are quick fix. (obviously not as good though)

Ok.... I give up! Anybody got any suggestions on how to cut these little guys out without your hands cramping up? LOL I have been trying to cut out the iris's and after 1/2 hour only have 5 sets and my hands are throbbing. Is there an easier way? I was thinking a hole punch around that particular size, but that might be hard to find.

My hubby made me an iris cutter last night! YAy! It works really well and it's really easy to make one. He got some metal tubing, with the hole being just big enough to circle the iris. Then he sharped the opening out on one end with our dremmel. He attached a piece of wood that can be taken on and off for a handle. All I have to do now is is press this sharp metal tube firmly over the top of the eye and it cuts it out perfectly! I did a bunch of eyes last night in just a few minutes. The only thing is you have to stick a small stick down inside the rod each time because the irises will go up inside the tool as you cut. You just gotta push them out, that is the reason he made the handle come on and off. I will take a picture of the tool today and post it. It only took him about 10 minutes to make ;-)

This may be a dumb question, but I am wondering what size do you make your iris for 5"-6" dolls??

Xena, I can't wait to see it. I can't imagine cutting them all out.

Woooooooow, Eneidaaaaaa!!! This way is sooooo easy and the result is wonderful!!!

I have one question...How can you print so much details into a iris so small??? I tried several month ago to print irisis, but the loose all the details in printing, so I gave up... It's only my printer or what else?

Anyway, your eyes (fake and not!) are fantastic!!!

Hey guys, I am having some real issues with my camera... but I managed to take these pictures of the tool my hubby made... he was also really sweet and said he'd be happy to make some and send them to whoever wanted one - he is so sweet. But, I think everybody can pretty easily do it with stuff around the house :-)

ok, here are the images, please forgive the poor quality and the horrible nail polish chipping off... LOL

All you need is a piece of metal tube with holes at both ends. sharpen the end you plan to cut with by using a file or dremmel.

Then find you a wooden handle, we used an old cork screw handle, you don't want to permanently attach the handle to the tube because you have to be able to remove the cut iris (they go up the tube when you cut)
Image
Image
Then just place the sharp end down over the iris and press hard, sometimes you have to twist and turn a little to get it to cut. Be sure that you have a stack of newspaper or some thick paper under the trans paper when you cut. It makes a perfect circle cut out! You'll have to find the right size tube for the iris you are using. My hubby has got a lot of these tubes in different sizes if you can't find anything.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Then all you have left to do is take the handle off and stick a small stick inside the tube to push the little iris out :-)
Image
Image

This may not be for everyone, but I thought I'd let you know how I am getting around cutting each one out with scissors. I love using Eneida's tutorial so much, I just had to find a way to get around the hand cramps... LOL Thanks again Eneida for sharing this tutorial with us all - you RocK! :wink:

ENeida,
this is a great tut ! thank you so much. You know what might be helpful too, for cutting the irisses ? it's a special tool for making (punching) holes for eyelets. Nowadays there are really tiny, tiny eyelets, so the tool has different bits to add, to cut different sizes of holes. Just like with the tube, you have to push them out.

ENeida, if you have shoes with laces, then the laces go through some metal eyelets, anyway, I just looked up some eyelets for you on ebay, so you can see what I'm talking about, they are metal , come in different sizes and colours, even different shapes nowadays, there are flowers, triangles, lol
http://cgi.ebay.nl/100-ROUND-Eyelets-THE-BLUES-1-8_W0QQitemZ150202106726QQihZ005QQcategoryZ28137QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

There are different kinds of eyelet setters, tools to cut the holes, this one I found on ebay too,
http://cgi.ebay.nl/FISKARS-EYELET-SETTER-SETTING-TOOL-SET-for-eyelets-pk-3_W0QQitemZ140196381306QQihZ004QQcategoryZ28137QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

here you can find another type of setter, called the silent setter, click the picture on the right to see it.

Glad to be of help Eneida ! There's also a pair of tongs I have, used to make holes in a belt, you know when a belt is too long and doesn't seem to have enough holes, with these tongs, you can punch holes into the belt. The tongs have different sizes, this works great too ! I'll see if I can take a picture of mine.

Whooo Hoo! I cut out 20 sets of eyes last night in under 10 minutes! LOL No hand cramps either! :-) I gotta try the eyelet tool next.. got to make some money first though LOL Do you know what size hole they make? or is it just one standard size for eyelets? Also, anybody know where to get these in the USA? Thanks! This has turned into such an awesome thread ;-)

Wow. This is great, first the eye tut, then the tube hole punch--you guys are awesome! I can't wait to try it. It's interesting to learn how everyone does it--we all do it a little differently. I've learned so much from people here. Thanks Eneida and Xena. I'm going to try some this weekend.

Eneida, your website is very nice too!

This is a picture of what you can use and the best thing is, you can find this in any DIY store. As you can see, you can make different sizes of holes, even very tiny ones.

This tool looks different than the other one you posted, is this called an eyelet tool? Because I'm going to my fabric store today and want to ask for it and see how much it costs. Thanks a bunch! ;-)

Herewebe, I make my iris just under 4mm for my 6" dolls. Just the iris though, not the entire eye size. I also have done some a tad larger for different looks, any much smaller than 4mm I think is too small, unless of course you are doing a smaller sculpt. :-) Just my opinion though ;-)

Check Michaels or A.C. Moore in the Scrapbooking aisle. They have several different punch tools and I saw a new one that you can dial in the size of the holes and it sets eyelets also. It was expensive though, 27.00. You can buy the simple eyelet hole punch for about 9.00 I think.

Here's another tip when using the hole punch. Put a piece of cardboard under the acetate, use cardboard like from a cereal box, it will be a lot easier to punch out the irisses that way, you can easily cut 30 of them in one minute.

I noticed that too, but when I scrolled to the bottom of the pictures, I was able to scroll side to side and see the rest of them. Not sure why it did that.

A silly question Eneida
Do you put the iris with the printed side up on down on the clay? :oops:
How can I avoid so many bubbles? :?

Silvana side up or down is not important you will have the same look
anyway if you like put the printed side down.
the only way to not have bubbles is bake lower temperature for 5 mim
and after that with your heat gun.

Darn, I keep getting nasty little bubbles... but I think it's because I am getting them too hot. I want to use a pair of these for my Merhorse WIP. Eneida, your eyes look so flawless, do you ever have trouble with bubbles? I know it has everything to do with technique, so I'll keep trying until I get it right ;-)

Thanks xena
no i don´t have truble with bubbles
i think you should put less fimo gel on the fist bake
and the second bake you need sitll a low temp
they come out of the oven without brightness
you open the bright with your heat gun ...
but when you do this you don´t get bubbles anymore
cause the 2 bakes you make before prevent this
keep trying
really is not so complicate .

Oh, ok, I see. You know I think i just wasn't getting the idea in my head straight. I am putting a thick layer on them the first bake and then I went straight to heat gun with the second application of fimo gel.... I'm going to try it again and this time (I'll follow all the exact instructions LOL) Thanks again Eneida!

I have used about half a pot of my liquid fimo trying to do this! And I just can't keep the bubbles out!!!! arrgggh!
Any tips for someone who can't follow directions too well?
also, how long should I be going at it with the heat gun for?

(I'm not a new member BTW- I joined last year but my account was purged!)

I'm late to this posting, having just joined about a month ago. When I saw this thread with the amazing instructions, I just flipped. I went out and immediately ordered the Deko Gel and Fimo that I needed. I downloaded lots of irises from various websites to work with (eventually ended up outlining them in PhotoShop and exporting them as "transparencies" since I was getting so much background on my transparency printouts of irises no matter how carefully I cut them out.) Anyhow, I made my first batch of eyes yesterday and my corrected batch today. I am so delighted! This is an awesome technique!

I'm going to try to give a link to the eyes I made today -- they are not perfect, but I am delighted with the first try.
