I am trying to make an animation. It's just hard to move the eyes when the eyes are made of clay. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Either wooden beads which are the cheapest and easiest to find, or glass ones. Simply paint the pupils over the holes. When animating, I use a pin to move the eyes.

Where do i get to buy these beads? How about the glass ones?


samuelhayward Posted: Nov 14th 2012

Well, to be frank, I haven't sourced any glass ones yet, but hobbycraft should sell plain wooden ones, I use 7mm, and paint them white and ad pupils. If not, a qiuck google search and you'll come accross what you want.

But beads have holes right? Hows that?

Where do you buy glass eyes or white glass balls that are small and good as eyes?
