New 1.25" Cast eyes for smaller conversion figures

We have been getting many requests for 1.25" cast eyes for those who make conversion figures. Now we have them available.

The smaller eye balls still carry the 16mm iris. All holes are pre-drilled and the top of the eye has a recessed hole to allow for a blinker shell. White solid urethane plastic eliminates the need for painting.

You can also flip the eye upside down if you prefer to have the oval portion against the eye base.

Visit our VENT EYES page of our web site for purchase information.

Other projects

Last weekend, I worked on a project with local artist Cath Posehn. She does fantastic paintings and other art work including sculpting. Her latest project is to make a mosaic mermaid. She came to me for help with designing and constructing the frame for her project.
The frame had to support the torso and the weight of the concrete and tile cover. Since this will be placed outdoors, we also needed to design internal achors to support the model.

The frame will be wrapped in paper and wire mesh and then a scratch coat will be applied. Later, the mosaic tile will be placed on the outside of the body.

Shown on the right is the basic frame for the mermaid project. I asked her to send me photos when the project is completed so I can post them on the blog.
