Just finished the eyes for my first mount.
I'm please with the result except I would like to have
a wet look on the lids.
What should I use

You can use Gary Bowen's "Super Fish Gloss" or even "Crylon Clear Enamal". Spray a bit into a cup and apply with a brush.
You can clean your brush with Laquor Thinner.
Have a good weekend,
Spray gloss thru your airbrush so you hit only the lids, then clean the eye of overspray. I've had problems with applying gloss with a paint brush, because it tends to remove some of the paint on the lid, during the applying of the gloss. Did that make sense?!
I think what you are trying to achieve is moisture in the lower eye (at least thats what I hope you want) Very simple procedure. After painting and cleanup place a drop of modpodge in corner of eye and with thin paintbrush smooth out along lower lid..leaving a slight bit more in corner. Hope this helps.
I'm learning there is more than 1 way to skin a cat
(no pun intended)
Plasti-Kote, ordered from Van Dykes. I used this on the nose, too.
