STEP 1:-

MAD EYE MOODY - Step 1 | Hobbyideas

Fevicryl Shilpkar is an air-drying clay which comes as two different entities- resin and hardener. You’ve got to mix and knead the resin and hardener well to get the clay which you can play with to create shapes of your choice. Once mixed, you would have about 20 minutes of working time. We start off by making a small ball which is the basic shape of the eyeball and put in an eye-pin which will allow you to fasten the eye to your costume. Let this dry for about half an hour.
