    I've been looking in the archives for an old thread on getting the wet look on bird eyes. I can't find it. If I remember right, it involved furniture polish to achieve a wet look. Any help would be appreciated.

    why would you put anything on a glass eye that might yellow fade or crack over time....just polish it with a drop of windex on a qtip put the gloss on the lid but you should never need anything on the eye itself.........not glass anyway
