    The lay method will work but imo makes getting the upper eyelashes set in a downward angle may be a struggle......I did to the lay method many moons ago...

    take your molding tool and push the top of the eye skin up. the laches will point down. adjust as you go.

    I've never had trouble getting the eye lashes to point down with the lay method. I use my fingernail to adjust them the second day.

    your not taking the extra skin from the eye and tucking it under the clay around the eye of the form. your just laying the skin of the eye over the glass eye. gluing it of coarse.
