Do your puppets look a little bit lifeless? It could be because you're using clay to make the eyes. Ninety percent of the expression your puppets have comes from the eyes. Clay eyes lack the nuance that you might want to get out of an animated performance.

If you want your puppets to look more expressive - they can benefit by using our white Delrin balls instead.

All you need to do is drill a small hole and paint an iris using some enamel hobby paints. Your puppets will look a million times better, especially for close-ups.

Here's a testimonial from one of our customers:

Testimonial:"I got your delrin eye balls for Christmas a while back and I love them. I was doing some animating and my clay eyes kept getting crushed and ruined. Ever since I received your product I have had no problems. I recieved the ten pack and still haven't even needed anymore because I can just use them over and over. You definitely have a wonderful product."~Ryan

If you want to animate the eyes, make sure to get our pin vice and three 1mm drill bits. The pin vice drills a micro hole that you can stick a pin into to move the eyes once they are inserted in your puppets head.

If by chance were sold out of those, you can use a small heated pin to make a mini-hole in the iris. Then you can insert the pin later for animation. The Delrin eyes come in three sizes, 5/16", 7/16" and 1/2" of an inch.
