I'd like to use beads for the eyes of my models, but couldn't find a place online that delivers without of minimum payment (I live in England).

If anyone could tell me a site where I can get them from I'd really appreciate it.

what about shops?????like art & craft stores

Terry T Posted: Jun 4th 2009

I've had a look at a couple where I live but they don't have any... and so I would have to find another art and craft store and then find out where they are and even then they might not have any.

So that why I was asking about a place on line, I am aware about art and craft shops, if I can't find an easy way to get them (website) then I'll just have to keep looking.

Thanks, I had a look on the HobbyCraft website and found an ideal bag of 6mm white round beads.

For anyone else looking for some.

you can use ball bearings and paint them

An easy way to make eyes that I use is to buy white Sculpey clay, roll it into a ball (any size you want), poke a hole in at and then bake it hard. Then paint the pupils/irises. Sculpey also sells a glaze so you can make them look shiny, like real eyes. Quick and easy.

I used small BB bullets and painted them white and then put black dots on them
they work just as well, if you dont have paint then use Tipex
