Got bored this morning so knocked up a few booby eyes for the coming match season.

Range of different sizes on different sized hooks.

Lockdown is boring

Rob,

I missed it when you first posted. When you say "varnished" do you mean just the thread tie-in areas, or do you also varnish the foam?

I ask only because the foam seems to have a sheen to it, perhaps a bit more than I've seen.

Thanks.

Cheers,

Bryan

I just dab a touch of varnish or superglue on the underside of the eyes only ( on the thread)

Just to hold them in place securely......be careful don't get superglue between the eyes or it will just set as a foam block.

Rob,

OK, got it. I didn't think you'd varnish the eyes themselves, but thought I'd check as, if so, I've never seen it done and thought it was a technique I'd been missing!!

Cheers,

Bryan
