That was quick. I had a little spot that was a different color than everything else so I went ahead and got it out of the way.
I started by cutting parts of the eye out so I could mark the eye onto the wood/epoxy. The part of the eye with the paper in place will be the part I carve out.
Then I drew it in using a pencil and the stencil I had just made
Next I hooked the flex shaft to the dremel and started carving. I used this big bit to start, then put a much smaller one on. I need to get more bits. I am quickly finding that a variety of sizes are needed. This one is really to big for this job, but the other one is much to small to take out all this material so I risked it. I figured as long as I didn’t screw up the wooden pupil of the eye I was ok.
Here you can see it mostly cleaned up. I did go back in with my smallest bit and smooth things up a little.
And here is the evil Grinch’s Yellow eye. Once again I used acrylic paint. I add some black glitter to get that evil sparkle in his Christmas present snatching eye. LOL
Well that’s all for today. I’ll let this cure over night and tomorrow I will try to get the white of the eye in. I am quickly learning that each color basically means one day. If the area’s to be filled are not to close together I can do more, but this eye is going to take about 3 days alone. It’s the cure time that kills you. The good part of that is that the sculpted box in my other blog is getting really close to getting a finish. But that’s a different blog.
I hope you have enjoyed this so far. The next episode will drop soon.
