    Hi David,

    Your eyes allways astound me also,you can see so much work in them,they look so real.do you find not glossing them helps the veiwer to see all the top work you put in ? As it looks like your eyes are matt and not gloss ? Have been meaning to ask for a while:confused:

    Many thanks

    Hi Carl thanks for your positive comments,glad you like the eyes.I always try to put as much detail into the eye as possible on a bust because the size allows it.As for the finish it is not matt, I always use satin varnish which gives a slight sheen so that the detail can still be seen.
