Item details

INTERCAL'S #218M GLASS EYES WITH A "MATTED" FINISH: Some bear makers prefer a "matted" finish giving your teddy bear more of an antique look. The glass eye is simply not as shiny as a standard black glass eye. Before we introduced the "matted" finish many bear makers would use sandpaper to archive a similar look. This is as close to using real antique SHOE BUTTONS as you can get.

These are high quality German or Austrian glass eyes. Please notice that these eyes have a rounded loop. Crimping of the stem is not recommended as you may break the bond between the glass and the stem.

If you need to crimp your glass eyes, we recommend our #500 and #560 eyes. These eyes are pre-crimped. The stem also features a small, round "ball" at the end which is inserted in to the glass.The stem thus becomes very difficult to pull out of the glass eye itself.

NOTE: The Clear eyes are great for making your own Custom Eyes using, for example, nail polish or an acrylic paint.

FEEDBACK: Feedback is important to us....especially POSITIVE comments. If you have any issues with our services or products please contact us directly.

We offer plenty of other glass eyes...including "test eyes", which you use to determine the eventual placement of the permanent eye. For these eyes please go to our web site.
