Ping pong ball "Follow-me" type taxidermy-ish eyes. I cut a ping pong ball in half to start. Each half is a seperate eye. I cut each part in half again. The smaller pieces will be the irises so I flipped them over and spray painted them bright yellow. Once dry, I glued them to the other piece so that the eye white is convex but the iris and pupil are concave. Using a brush I added some brown details. I mixed up some 2 part clear resin and poured about 1 oz. into a silicone mold I had previously made of the ball. The eye displaces the resin until it is level to the top edge of the ping pong ball. I poured a little extra on the inside to make it sturdier and let it dry for 72 hours.

I've used clear plastic domes prior to this for my eyes. The iris is usually colored plexiglass with window tint covering a hole for the pupil. Visability is great but I've always had fogging issues so wanted to give these a try. My early tests with resin showed that even thin layers distorted the image too much to see through.
