Puppet Eyes: Plastic Jewels
If you are looking for a way to make your puppet's eyes sparkle, try using plastic jewels. They are available at most craft stores and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Use a large round or oval jewel for the eye, or add a glint of light by gluing a small silver jewels to the corner of the eyeball. The jewels can also be glued to plastic spoons, ping pong balls, or practice golf balls to create a unique and colorful pupil. For our puppet show B.A.R.K. the robot dog, we used plastic jewels for B.A.R.K.'s eyes to give him a more mechanical look.
