VanDyke-eyes.jpgThese are a couple of the fish eyes that I got from VanDykes.  The white streak is a reflection of my scanner light, so doesn't belong!

Unfortunately not, Shari.  Some of their eyes have wires on them, but not the fish ones.  Just thought the speckles made these eyes different.

Pardon my asking  :redface:  .... how do you attach the eyes if there are no wires? Hmmm, I think there may have been a topic about that,I'll have to do research  bear_original   bear_grin   :hug:

I needlesculpted the eye area, then glued them on.  Use your strongest glue.
