Step 2: Rough cuts

Examine your ping pong balls to see which half is glued into the other half. This is the half you want to cut off and throw away.

Begin by using an exacto blade or other sharp instrument to remove most of this half on each ball.
I love these! Instead of painting the pupils, I hand-drilled a 7/32" hole in the center of each iris so I can see through them. I'm looking a little Judge Doom'ish here.
<p>This is so great! Exactly what I need to make for my step-son's Halloween costume!</p>
<p>what the? it's so freaky</p>
<p>This is so fun! XD</p>
<p>this puts the FUN in FUNerals</p>
Talking of funerals...
After seeing so many electronic ibles this was refreshing on my brain! So fun and family friendly. I have 2 boys ages 8 & 14...this is right up our alley!
What's so creepy - he looks just like Rick from Pawn Stars! Okay, maybe it is creepy...
I was about to post the same thing but wanted to scroll through to make sure I wasn't saying what someone already said!
LOL... you're right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Still LingMAO! <br>I can get into SOOOO much trouble with this! <br>Can't wait! YEEEEHAAAAA!!!!
Nice sunglasses tan! I thought it was a strap to attach the eyeballs at first!!
ha, i said 3-d animation ... let me call that anatomy, sorry
easily could be perfected with minimal tools and materials... if any of you know 3-d animation, you will understand easily
coat them with 'shine' (non-toxic), make the edges 'soft', and only paint the iris and pupil....then put them under my eyelids<br>
I have the EXACT same pair of scissors
add some stick on eyelashes for extra detail too
The addition of the eyelashes, convinced me I needed a pair!
That would be fantastic!!
I have never laughed so hard in all my life!!! What a good old fashioned fun project!
&quot;Examine your ping pong balls to see which half is glued into the other half. This is the half you want to cut off.&quot;<br><br>Isn't *each* half glued to the other half? I'm not clear on what you mean here.
I think he means that you want to cut off the half that is glued to the inside of the other half... ie. the &quot;male&quot; half, leaving the &quot;female&quot; half intact.
ohh... I see. I read &quot;into&quot; as &quot;to&quot;.
Cornguy says;<br> <br> When I was in college more than 50 years ago I put holes for pupils and added bloodshot veins around the irises. I could walk around campus wearing my glasses as usual and see where I was going while freaking out my friends.
I did the same thing, but in High School. I remember one shopping trip in Sears with my mother and a friend. I would hide inside a rack of clothes and wait for some unsuspecting shopper to move the clothing aside. :) Ahhh, the good old days. For some reason, my mom remembers this also. 30+ years later.
Brilliant! I totally love it. I will be making a walking around set soon.
Boa id&eacute;ia !!
hahaha, this bit made Me laugh!,.... . Also great for wearing yourself, so you can sleep virtually undetected during meetings,...<br>Thats funny, thanks for that,
hahahaha this is a great project to get a good laugh!... I will try it! ;D
You can scrape the writings/markings off a ping pong ball with a little patience and an X-acto knife.
That's what happens when you've had too much coffee!
i lollered when i read " . . Also great for wearing yourself, so you can sleep virtually undetected during meetings, church services, boring dates, job interviews, funerals, weddings, and so forth."
I like the 'sunglasses tan line' on the chap in the photo, I thought the eyes were on a pair of glasses to start with :D
Also, same concept works really well for costumes from The Simpsons!
Fun project. Thanks. <br>. <br>Add a little glossy clear-coating to the white and iris parts, masking out the eyelids, and the eyes would look even more realistic. The white dot wouldn't be necessary. <br>. <br>Did you draw the iris circle with pencil before applying the paint? I don't know if I can paint the iris so perfectly. Howdjadoit?
April Fool's Day is too far off. :(
Hilarious. The guy looks like he just finished watching his latest stock reports...
Coool !
This is good! Any suggestions on disguising snoring, though? :-)
that is awesome.
This is brilliant! :D
