    I'm starting work on getting stuff together to mount an opossum I have, I'd like to use the JB720 opossum form but I noticed it recommended using bubble eyes, and while I know how to install regular flat-backed glass/acrylic eyes I can't find info anywhere on how to put bubble eyes on a form.
    Additionally, would y'all recommend for an opossum using black bubble eyes or those AB960 conventional acrylic eyes?

    Drill/ augur out the socket somewhat. Put clay into the eye socket. Press bubble eye into clay. Form eyelids with clay. Easy peasy. Once you get your bubble eyes, it will be easy to see what to do.
