Making the Eyes
The eye is one of the most important parts of the figure making process as it brings the celebrity to life.
Each celebrity’s eye is unique and takes a lot of information to accurately recreate. We need to know the size of their eye ball, pupil and iris.
During the Sitting, we use sample eyes to find the right colour, often combining two or more to get it right. We have over 200 different eyes to choose from with colours ranging for bright blue to hazel brown, pale grey to emerald green. We also select a sample that best represents the colour of the sclera - the white of the eye - and make note of any visible veins or blemishes.
Using a sticky soft wax the eyes are secured into place. Over time the wax will harden preventing the eyes to move once the figure is in the attraction.
