Glass Flatback Realistic Human Eyes, Hazel, 1 pair
Glass Realistic Flatback Critter Eyes in many sizes. Make your next project really pop with these eyes! Glue in for needle felted sculptures, use E-6000--a viscous-bodied adhesive (in our Needle Felting Supplies Collection) to secure them, allow 24 hours to dry.
"Hazel" is one of those terms that can have different meanings, but what I have found is that they are a blend of colors and can change in color depending on what outfit is being worn. Although not as common as th other eye colors, they ar truly unique and beautiful. The Hazel Eyes we sell may be a blend of blue/green, green/blue or brown/green and often look different depending on the light they are being viewed in. That's about as specific as I can get!
FYI: These are labor-intensive with many steps involved in making them. Occasonally there might be a minor imperfection around the rim of the eyes, but know it won't interfere with the final appearance, as you will be covering the edges with wool to get a realistic look.
Here's a few tips: "overneedling" is the term for when you repeatedly poke your needle into one spot to create a divot. This is a good way to put an eye in, as it looks more realistic to have it slightly receeded into the head. Create your divot to the size needed for the chosen eye. Add a drop of adhesive, gently place the eye and press lightly. Allow this overnight to dry well for maximum hold. Add bits of wool the same color as the face so that it look more natural, covering the top and bottom edges of the eyes. Once those eyes are in, suddenly your critter or human has a personality!
a bit about Shipping...
It's an expense nobody likes to pay. And I won't be a hypocrite and raise prices on merch and say "Free Shipping!", because it's not. I'd gladly show up at your front door and hand you your order but that's not practical. It's a necessary expense, and we need to charge it. We are always looking for new ways to save on shipping, so please stay tuned. In the meantime, if the Shipping Rates we must charge are significantly higher than what the actual shipping cost, we're going to make it up to you with free items in your order. It's the least we can do...
