3d eyes are very easy to make let me show you how ^^

first you will need what is in this pic below
paint, glue gun, paint brush, and plastic "in 2 strips and 4 blocks"


first cut 2 big circles out of the blocks that will be the eye colour, choose a colour and paint, experiment with what you can do with the eye colour to make it look toony, realist, mythical etc. "make sure you leave a pupple to see out of". next take the 2 thin strips that will be the white part of the eye, paint them white or what ever colour you want them to be. glue them FIRST! end to end, and THEN paint them white or what ever colour as shown in the pic below. you should have 2 block of plastic left


glue the white part to the colour part and drime any extra along the edges, the pupple should be centered, then glue the clear plastic to the top of the eyes to give it a tomed look/shape. as shown below


looks kind of round don't they....... here comes the fun part ^^ SHAPE!

glue the eyes into the head on a slite angle to the sides to enhance the 3D look. now add foam over the eyes, or fur, or what ever you want to give the eye more charater eg, mad, happy, surprised etc. as shwon below




a screen can be added behind the eyes in the head so people can't see who is in their.

finish product should look something like this "these heads are not the same one as shown in the other pics"




enjoy. ^^

the black pupil part always gets me. You glue the black pupil to the eye color in the back or the front, wheres the color and pupil go xD I think too much.
