Metallic print eyes

My latest eye experiment!
These eyes are printed on metallic paper from Nations Photo Lab. They look great, especially the simple colorful designs like the red in center. I need to make the lens part slightly larger since the metallic paper isn’t flexible at all. The prints cost about $2 per 8×10 sheet which makes 40+ eyes, so it’s a pretty reasonable expense even with additional cost for shipping. The process for casting the resin eyes is detailed in my Advanced Guide to Making Resin Eyes.
