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

John,
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.
Works great!

Have a good weekend,
Dave


Thanks Dave

Another way

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?!


Thanks Leanna

Makes sense


Modpodge

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.

Plasti-Kote, ordered from Van Dykes. I used this on the nose, too.
