Picture of Making Faces
This project was inspired by my aunt and uncle. I made magnetic ping pong ball eyes in order to make instant faces in the interesting metal objects around me. It's a very simple (and weird) project, but it can have some very funny results.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

- ping pong balls
- magnets, I used 1/4" by 1/4" rare earth magnets from http://www.amazingmagnets.com
- Plasti Dip or paint, white and black (I got mine here http://www.quiltershusband.com)
- Glue

- drill bits
- nails

DO you place the magnets 90 or 180 degrees from the pupils?
blightdesign (author)  Kaiven6 years ago
Typically, I place them 90 degrees. But 180 works too.
I want to put them on my airsoft gun >:P IT HAS EYES
YES!!!!!!! lol BEST SCOPE EVER!!!!!!
krobot6 years ago
Quick question-what kind of magnet did you use, specifically the shape?
blightdesign (author)  krobot6 years ago
The magnets are cylindrical, 1/4" tall, 1/4" diameter.
Hehe... So simple but SOOO much fun! ....
new here. that's such a fun idea. what about adding a set to a eyeglass case-or..... what about filling the case with tiny fake eyeballs? lol. i'm trying to think what would work for little eyes. so far all I can think of are marbles-maybe with tiny iris and pupil stickers lol

You know it is often the simple ideas that are the most fun and spur people on to take that original idea off to yet another great idea. Thank you for the Instructable!

I suppose all you can really suggest is to check to make sure the surface you're attaching them to doesn't get too hot, otherwise you might get some unexpected results.
