Step 1: Size up your balloon

You need to get your balloon and blow it up. The size needs to be larger than your head but not at the full capacity that the balloon can get. If the balloon is too large, it will most likely burst during the paper mache. (Since it is an eyeball, it needs to have a circular look, and a balloon at full capacity looks more like an oval.)

It may take a couple of balloons to get the right shape that you want, but above is a reference on what it should kind of look like.
This balloon was actually a tad to small, Long wise, so i blew up another one that was slightly larger.
