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

awesome thanks
Thank you for putting this on here ^.^ My upcoming project is a Toothless plush and I wanted an epic eye which I have just found a way to make one so YAY and Thanks so much again
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...?
You are the best!! ^^ Im doing my own toothless right now, I hope it finally looks as cute as yours :D
Infinite thank you for the tutorials

(sorry for my horrible english! ><)

how do you attach them to your plush without them being loose?
