    I was wondering if there is something that can be used to cover the eye to prevent overspray, that can be bought locally instead of having to order it from a supply company? Thanks for any help!

  3. You should be able to find "Liquid Latex Mold Builder" which is just liquid latex rubber at local hobby stores... I know Hobby Lobby carries it in our area. Just paint it onto the eyeball (the part you want to protect from overspray), allow it to dry, and paint. When you are finished painting, just peel off the mold builder and you have clean glass.

    eye protect ; page 80 WASCO catalog.
     
  5. At an Art Supply Store, in the watercolor paint section you will find a liquid called "Frisket".

    Id rather clean the eye after painting. Sure you wanna protect the eye in advance?

    i also clean the eyes after painting (laquir paint). take a q- tip with windex and apply to the eye, then take a tooth pick cut at an angle to clean it off. works great for me

    I use the eye protect, but just to keep the overspray on the eye itself to a minimum. I still clean the entire eye after removing it.
