Greetings! I have run into a bit of difficulty… I have beautiful full round glass eyes for this one baby I am working on. The problem is they don’t want to stay in the socket while the glue (e6000) sets… And the way the hole in the neck is made I can only get the eye and two fingers up there and that is it. I tried holding it with a gloved hand but I don’t think I was able to hold it long enough for the glue to take hold enough so that the eye won’t move.
So my question is this: can I super glue the eye to the socket and then secure it with e6000 after? That way it will get the security of the e6000 but I won’t have to fight with it quite so much… Or will that harm the vinyl in the long run? Should I just bite the bullet and order her a new pair of flat back eyes? (Sadly I have not seen eyes as pretty as the ones I have at any other place in flat backs…)
If anyone has any suggestions I’d love to hear them. Also if anyone one knows where I can get eyes like this in 24mm half backs I would greatly appreciate it as well.
Haha! This picture makes them look like googly eyes!
