Very nice simple tutorial. This should get quite a few folks into creating their own props.

Just thought you might get a kick out of this. Its one of my personal favorite scenes. The gut buster Check Point Chickie.

You make molding look so easy...but I'm still scared. ;) Is the board under the clay eyeballs anything special to keep the silicone from sticking to it?
It's melamine from the hardware store. You could also use a tile or anything flat and kinda smooth. Silicone only sticks to silicone, so you don't have to worry about that. Just read the directions for your silicone to make sure it won't be inhibited (prevented from curing) by any of the materials you use.

Inhibition, by the way, is really only a concern with platinum cure silicones (like the Rebound). The primary culprits are sulfur in some clays (in fact, if it doesn't say sulfur free clay, it's probably not) and latex (gloves).

But again, if you're worried, give it a go with plain old paster and get the feel for it. You can run it under water to help pop the hot glue out.
