    Have any of the Pirates prop fans thought of or tried making Ragetti's wooden eye?

    I'm sure you're the first one, but if you'll do the eye, you should make the eye with the fork (as display) :D

    i made one a while back from a wooden "craft sphere" they sell in bags at wal mart and michaels. i forget the size i used, but it was a little bigger than a quarter (they had over and way under). neat fact, the average human eye diameter is the size of a quarter ;)

    white acrylic wash a few times, and some hand painting for the iris, and my friend had something to go with his coin.

    the bonus to this is while its hard to find 100% round spheres, the ones i picked up had a small hole in the back, which helped make displaying it a lot easier.

    total cost was something like 5$.

    There's some decent imagery of the contact lens they used on one of the features on the DVD.

    omg. I went to walmart after the movie and thought about making the eye. I even found the right size 1 1/4" but they are not fully round so am still checking out craft stores. I did however start the base for the eye to look like a plank from the ship. I also though about the 97 cent apples to display with it. Just cheap props that everyone can make.

    Thanks for sharing the pic D6 :thumbsup


    This is such an obvious choice for a home made prop replica, I can't imagine why it never occured to me take a shot at it before reading this thread.

    Thanks for this nice idea . Tomorrow we have here in Germany the premier of PotC and a friend of mine has worked for over a year on his Jack Sparrow costume (incl. extremely not-shaving for having the beard and the locks .) and this is very nice little present for him .

    Here is it including "coffee-weathering" ;)
