Up side
cheep and effective. Really works and adds 'movement' to a static prop.
Down side
needs lots of light to be effective so it's not good in a dim or dark haunt

2 small plastic 2 pc. Easter eggs. The normal size ones will do if you want big eyes.
Gesso or oil base white paint.
black paint
small paint brush.
something to cut egges apart
something that needs eyes. ( mask, pumpkin, corps head....)

Step one
Cut the eggs apart at the hinge. You will only need the rounded part for this prop.
Step two
Paint the inside of each egg half white.
Step tree
VERY important! You must put eyes in place before painting in irises. Trying to line them up is almost impossible.
If you have to glue the eyes in place wait till it's set before doing the next step.
Step four
Using a small brush and black paint, paint in the irises.

Now the fun part. Set the prop up and about 3 to 5 feet from you and walk past. Dig those funky 'eyes!!!

I have one prop that I'll have to redo. When you walk past the prop it looks like it's watching someone ells.

One of these days I'll have a web site of my own and be able to list all my playthings. Like the 'forever pumpkins' all my props have come out of cheep necessity. ( got tired of carving 10 pumpkins each year.)
Keep it cheesy,

When we started pulling out the Halloween stuff I ran across some eggs. I did keep them out even though I didn't know what I was going to do with them. Now I do. Thanks

Guess I'm going to have to start singing "I only have eyes for you," huh?
