Clay Eye Tutorial by Katy-A Clay Eye Tutorial by Katy-A
Due to Popular Demand~
I've made a tutorial on how to make clay/sculpey eyes for plush!

I actually had a really fun time making this one. It only took me around two hours, versus the 10+ it took to make
the Toothless one. Not to mention I could do this one outside. It was such a beautiful day out.

Watch out when using the super glue! I glued my fingernail to my finger on several occasions. See what I do for you guys?

If there's anything you don't understand, ask me! If this tutorial isn't clear, I'd love to go back in and change it.

I'll have a text version up soon. I just need to get it formatted correctly.

once again, i do love those llamas

I have a question. I've completed Toothless (wings and all) except for the eyes. I am making mine out of polymer clay, since it is recommended and I have a skill with it, and my mom, being an artist is painting them.

So my question is, how did everybody attach the eyes???? I did not use the plastic stuffed animal eyes because in my first test run they broke off very easily. Did anyone make holes in the back and sew them on? Lemme know what ya did!

Am thinking of making a Toothless (HTTYD) plushie and with the eyes are you able to paint them (with acyrlic) after you've baked it before putting the varnish on??

Will be using this tutorial when I make my Toothless plush. c:

To get Toothless' crossed-eye expression, do you recommend placing the pupil on the low end of the eye or the high point? Or will that make the plush look goofy? I don't want him to look like a Derp, but I do want him to have that adorable facial expression.

Hello, im currently working on a toothless from your pattern, and i was hoping you could tell me how you attached the eyes? PLEASE :)
i understand you use the plastic eye, which i have brought some of, you just cut a hole in the head to push it through? and do i need to sew around the hole to give it more strength if this is the case...?
