Now that I've kind of bored out my eye sockets I have to actually put the eyes in there so I'm just going to roll up miniature size balls for the eyes and I'm just going to set those. I'm going to do two and I'm not trying to draw out the eye or anything. I just want to get the eye in here and then once I do that I'm just going to kind of fill this in. They look like glasses right now, but we're going to shape them out. I'm just using my fingers to do all this stuff but I want to try and keep the shape of my eyebrows that I did work on earlier. So I filled this in and then once I get these in there then I can start to pull out the eyelid and the actual shape of the eye so it's kind of like you dig it out and then you build it back up. I'm just going to get a little water right here so I don't start cracking. And I'm still keeping the shape of the nose, but I don't want to be working on the nose just yet. So I've added two pieces for the eyes. So it's starting to shape up to look like a face and that's adding the clay for the eyes.
