Make it from Epo-Grip Industrial Adhesive. Use dry pigment or powdered pastel chalk to pigment the epoxy to the desired hue and degree of transparancy. Spray the eye with Mann's 2251 release in order that the epoxy will "slide" over the surface and then manipulate the epoxy with a sculpting tool that is dipped in olive oil to prohibit adhesion. The membrane may be formed and will look exactly like nature with combined with additional applications of resin pigmented to match the transitions.
