OMG! Does anybody have any alternatives to using E6000 to glue eyes in? It’s so messy and frustrating…
@Simone I use the matte gel same thing I use to glue hair in. Then I cover the eye with moleskin.
Is you question about glueing the eyes in the certain position or glueing the flap on top of the eyes?
@Anne - ? Matte gel thing? Sorry, what is that? LOL
Gluing them in position.
I believe this is what she is talking about @Simone
I used this stuff from Mac’s…its amazing…you just set your eyes, dip a paint brush in it and paint it on the back of the eyes. it dries fast, doesn’t glue your fingers together and doesn’t drip or glob.
That is what I use also
Thanks @Lil the E6000 is so stringy and hard to work with! I’ve never liked using it…
thank you, you sold me… that E6000 is so bad for us to use all the time
I only use E6000 to glue magnets to pacifiers, for some reason it works better, I think it bonds better to the plastic. The UHU super glue that I use works great for gluing the magnet inside of the head and I should know because I have had to take a few out which was certainly not easy but it doesn’t seem to work as well on the pacifiers. I used to use Modpodge, the same that I use to glue in hair, to glue in my eyes but I like the eye molding glue much better and it helps with the blown glass eyes that have sharp edges on the ends as well. I originally bought it because I had broken the stem on an eye and thought I could use it to glue in the eyes as well but I don’t think I could use anything else now.
Yes @Simone what @hyelah1990 said. That is what I use. I use e6000 on the magnet on the mouth, inside, and put Liquitex matte gel over that once it’s dry, then I put mole skin over that once it’s dry.
I never glue my eyes in. I always use flatback glass eyes and I pop them in through the front when the kit is fairly still warm. Never had any problems. I don’t think you can pop in those half round acrylic eyes.
