Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for the dimensional fabric paint.
  • 2
    To create the double eyes use the Foam Cutter to cut the eggs in half lengthwise. Lay them on the table side by side with cut sides down. Glue them together in unique ways to create fun looks with low-temp glue. For examle, tilt the narrow ends of the eggs in and the wide ends apart to create “worried” eyes or cut the narrow end of the eggs off to create eyes peeking over something. (Tip: use the Foam Cutter to make a small flat spot where the two sides meet; this creates a larger surface for gluing the two pieces together, making a stronger bond. Toothpicks can also be inserted in between the pieces for added support.)
  • 3
    Insert a toothpick into each Styrofoam ball to use as a handle as you paint. Paint circles for the colored iris on each of the balls or eggs as large or as small as you desire, using dimensional fabric paint colors listed under supplies. Let dry. Paint Shiny Black circles in the center of the iris for pupils. Use Shiny Black dimensional fabric paint to outline the pupils and the irises. Use Shiny Red dimensional fabric paint to draw the blood vessels. Let dry.
  • 4
    Cut squares of clear plastic wrap big enough to cover the eyeballs and a little extra to overlap slightly. Wrap each eyeball pulling it snug as you go to smooth creases. When wrapping the egg-shaped eyes, wrap each half egg separately. Use hair dryer (on hottest setting) to “shrink” the plastic wrap to the eyeballs giving them a glossy look.
