Lachlan Posted June 29, 2013 Report Share Posted June 29, 2013 "The eyes are the key to the soul" or at least I believe there is a lot of truth in that. I'd like to improve how I do eyes on small carvings because I really feel the way I currently do them does not give the animals any "soul". I want the pieces to look at people, seem alive (one day!). My normal method for doing eyes involves inlaying black coral or just drilling a small hole and staining it with permanganate or ink. As eyes on the pieces are so small Im not sure I could do combination eyes like Ive seen elsewhere. The only thing I can think of is to make/accentuate the detail around the eyes? How do you do eyes?
