Darkranth . About the eyes. I have been thinking about using "Sculpey super flex","Sculpey eraser clay" or "fimo soft" for puppets eyes. I am thinking of making a flat tortilla or patty with one bar and use an ice cream scoop, a soup scoop or a bowl as a mold, pressing the dough from the inside to make it round, cut it with a glass and bake it. I haven´t try it, but I think could be used to make other unusual shapes too.
