I order sets of 8-10 and 12mm Bubble eyes, then when getting ready to mount, I drill a small hole in the form in the eye sockets are, push some clay in their and see which I I like best.. The last 2 I have done I used 10mm, and seemed to prefer them the most.. Amall skunks will take a smaller eye, say 8mm and larger ones a bigger eye. 12mm.. Good luck and be sure to post some pics when done. Here is a link of some skunk pics, and a close up of a mounted skunk using 10mm Black bubble eyes.
