    What clean do y’all use around ur eyes? I have been using critter clay in gray but it seems like the eyes dry some what dark. Does anyone use white?

    I use Dakota Modeling Clay from Van Dykes/McKenzie. I do mostly gameheads so I use it for ear butts, eyes and lips. If you keep it in its plastic bag and tied, it will last almost forever. You can add water to soften it. It comes in 1lb, 5lbs, 25 lbs and 50lbs. It dries a faster than Critter Clay but it's less expensive. Joe
