WT Eye Size

Submitted by MW on 2/17/01. ( )

I was just wondering when you guys go from a 32mm eye to a 34mm eye. Is there a general rule for a certain nose/eye measurement. I know most people use the 32 mm and that is all that Eppley offers, but I have a very large WT with a eye/nose 8.25-8.5". Can I get away with the Eppley 32mm or should I buy another brand in the 34 mm size like Tohickon?

For commercial work it shouldn't be a problem,
but the best thing to do would be to compare it to the actual eye, then make a determination.

In this situation, make sure you don't over-fill the eye area with clay. maybe use slightly less than normal.(assuming you add clay to the brow areas when you mount) .
extra clay will make the brows thicker, and make the eye look even smaller.

Hope that helps
