    I bought some Wayne Cooper flex eyes with the eye ring included for a Woodduck mount. I am wondering how to use them. Do you have to make the eye sockets deeper or do they make artificial heads that will accept them. Also don't understand the purpose of the foam backing, the eye seems to float all over the place. Thanks, Dan L.

    Not my favorites. But they work. The foam is to take up the slack behind the eye. Increase the eye opening so the eye ring sits flush. Hot glue works well to hold it in place. It's easy to use glass eyes and make your own eye rings out of Apoxie-Sculpt with some red paint mixed in to get the right color. Just an FYI for you. Good Luck
