How To Make Jeepers Creepers Rock Eye Peepers

Step 1: ‚ÄčThe Stuff

Hunt around and you almost certainly have a number of these decorative clear glass vase filler pebbles within the house somewhere. they are available during a few sizes but I chose the most important I could find.
Dig out some nail enamel as well; especially tones of eye colours and plain white.
Any colour of zipper will work but¬†you’ll¬†need about 6‚Ä≥ (upcycle from your old jeans).¬†they will¬†be cut shorter to suit.
The impatient¬†a part of¬†me is¬†employing a¬†fast setting concrete again, but¬†you’ll¬†check here¬†to ascertain¬†what other choices¬†you’ll¬†have.
Add some tin foil and old plastic bags,
hot glue & glue-gun,
as well because the usual safety equipment like gloves and mud mask.

Step 2: ‚ÄčThe Eyes Come First

The process for creating the glass eyes involves performing on the flat side of the pebbles which can eventually be the rear . Think backwards because the first layers are going to be the foremost visible. A drop of black are going to be the pupil then a mixture of colors will structure the iris. check out your eye and see all the tiny details. Multiple layers and a few scraping back will give the finer details.

The subsequent layers will show through nicely and mixing a couple of colours makes it more unique. Add a final thick solid layer of white to end it off. Don’t rush the drying. If you would like to repair edges an xacto knife will scrape away any errors.

Here‚Äôs¬†watching¬†you!¬†and that i¬†love that¬†they’re¬†glass and not plastic.

Step 3: ‚ÄčThe Rock Eye Form

As a filler¬†I even have¬†repurposed¬†a number of¬†the plastic bags¬†then¬†covered them with a layer of tin foil into a ball-like shape. It makes them lighter and it¬†doesn’t¬†absorb moisture which¬†is sweet¬†. Crumple up¬†an appropriate¬†shape¬†then¬†hot glue the ‚Äėglass eyes‚Äô¬†in situ¬†.¬†you’ll¬†make shapes that resemble imperfect rocks.

Step 4: ‚ÄčSetting the Eyes

Since these will probably find a range in the garden the within eye section must even be permanent. Mix a really stiff amount of concrete (this mix sets quick so don’t mix too much) then spread it round the eyes to completely cover the foil.

This is¬†the within¬†eye section so it¬†doesn’t¬†got to¬†cover then entire rock. Let it cure which with this concrete is about 1 hour.

Step 5: The Zipper Eyelids

Now the fun part; making some crazy eye expressions; angry, sad, whatever you wish . they will even be flipped since the poor fellows don’t have noses… Tack the zipper sections in situ with hot glue and stop any extra length.

Each one features a personality. There’s just something about looking into someone’s eyes… mesmerizing.

Step 6: ‚ÄčPatty-cake Patty Cake

Do you now realize that playing within the sandbox (real sand and muck) was preparation for real life?!

Mix¬†alittle¬†amount of the concrete mix. With a brush wet the zipper before spreading the stiff concrete¬†misunderstanding¬†against the zipper with a flat tool¬†sort of a¬†knife or tongue depresser. If¬†it’s¬†too dry¬†it’ll¬†not ‘rob’ the concrete of it‚Äôs moisture¬†to form¬†it crack.

Fill¬†within the¬†remainder of¬†the ‚Äėrock‚Äô and use your hands if needed. This concrete will start¬†to urge¬†stiffer and become quite moldable like clay. Not all rocks are perfectly round so leave some texture and bumps.¬†they’re¬†rocks not potatoes!

Step 7: Cleaning Up

To smooth out any little lumps and have a clean edge to the zipper use a wet brush. Clean off any concrete on the eyes too.

Step 8: Rocks Aren’t Really That Clean

Rocks¬†aren’t¬†meant to be perfectly white or clean so¬†a skinny¬†‚Äėdrippy‚Äô wash of a mud-colour¬†acrylic¬†will make it¬†appear as if¬†authentic rock. Let it run and drip into the details;¬†couldn’t¬†be easier! I find concrete lasts better without thick layers of paint as¬†they have a tendency¬†to peel or¬†peel off¬†.
