The whole ball, not just from the eyelid apertures. For instance, in 1/4th scale the whole eyeball sould be...? And in 1/6th, and 1/8th?

For replacing eyes in a kit, or doing a sculpt. Find a round bead or some such, put it in the socket, then add the eyelids over that.

The book CREATING LIFE-LIKE FIGURES IN POLYMER CLAY recommends 4mm eyeballs for 1/6th scale, 3.5mm for 1/8th, 3mm for 1/10th, and 2.5mm for 1/12th.

you can get glass eyes (unpainted ones are called "flints") from van dykes taxidermy... i sometimes use those, other times i use ball bearings. when it comes to the size, it really varies from person to person.... eyeballs are surprisingly large. for a recent 1/8 scale female figure i used 4mm glass flints.

Thanks, guys, big help! Still trying to learn sculpting. Getting better, but the eyes are trouble.
