    mix some apoxie sculpt with acrylic paint of the correct colour. roll it into a very thin worm'then make a small loop[circle] place on the eye. then work it out ward with a wet paint brush till you have an artificial eyelid.
     
  4. Thank you very much, I did your way teaching and it works well on small birds of prey. I have a Saker Falcon , same with the eye-rings i have to keep working to the deep in the front of the eye under eyebrows close to nostrils. Here is a problem I am facing now.
