Mezzanotte is a Nipper Dragon with custom glass eyes, bought and shipped to me by the dragon purchaser.
I am thinking of using glass eyes for a few of the largest dragons, it would be more work- getting the eyes set into a head requires washers and wire or cotter pins, but the effect is amazing. (these are an artist’s custom printed eyes and are lovely)
While I do know how to make similar eyes, printing eyes that are glued onto the back of a glass cabochon, then set into a bezel backing with a loop on the back…. but it would add to the final cost. Buying them from Etsy would save me time, but still add $20 to the cost of a dragon…I’m leaning towards just buying them for special dragons.
