I'm working on a Youtube tutorial that shows how to make this dragon eye. I should have it up on my channel by Saturday, May 23rd if all goes well. Here is a link to my channel…  

I used an old watch face for the eye. I thought it would be fun because it glows in the dark. Trouble was, it did not have a glass cover, like I assumed, and the "glass" melted when I cured it. I was so upset. I racked my brain trying to think of how I could salvage it. I decided to try to pop out the melted piece while it was still a little warm. Now I had a bare watch face. :(  The face of the watch was set in a metal tray of sorts and I decided to try to cover it in a couple layers of UV resin. It worked, though it did not dome like I hoped it would. The dragon looks like he has tears welling up in his eye. Poor guy, he's so sensitive. 

I will post it in my Etsy shop after the video is up. Here is a link to my shop  When I list it, it will show more angles including some that show the eye glowing. :)
