Yeah, there's still a seller on ebay that sells open eyed Keaton lifecasts for around $50.00, I believe... Not too bad of a price, and could make a kick ass addition to an '89, or a Returns suit. That looks great Reevz, very nice job.

yeah..I saw that guys Keaton..I dunno,I would ahve liked it allot better if he hadn't tried to sculpt his own eyes onto it...but I'll still get one eventually tho :toocool

if you made your mold already, you can order some glass eyes that are similar to Keaton's eye color and pop them where the eyes need to go, pour in your material, let it dry, then cut out where the eyes need to go. However, instead of making a resin lifecast, you could do it in a high shore hardness urethane, so slicing out the lids to expose the eyes is easier. That's how I did this:

Slicing out the lids... Sounds tasty...
