* googly eyes resin magnet

Posted on May 20th, 2008 by maitreya. Filed under Resin.

Another goodbye present,this one for my teaching partner of 5 years. He totally randomly came across craftlog by accident by googling googly eyes the other day. I glued magnets to the back using E6000, which I think is not actually the right glue for the job (epoxy instead?) It is awesome and creepy.

    Kinda freaky but hey, I love me some freaky! lol

    To get the magnet(s) on the back, I think I’d put the piece back into the mold, sit the magnet(s) on the back, and pour a bit more resin to embed the magnet to the piece so there’s no chance of it coming off. E6000 is wonderful but if the piece if heavy…well, you know what I’m saying.
