Last Chance, I believe in the flat spot for glueing 3d eyes as well, strongly advocate it. I have gone to using brad tip drill bits turned by hand to get my flat spot and even a shallow socket.

Brad tip bit has close to flat bottom hole. For larger bugs, I use the quarter inch forstner bit.


Twist the bit by hand back and forth with very little downward pressure.


While this is a balsa wood head, this works on hard and soft foam and cork as well.


This is a 3d stick-on eye but any 3d eye can be used as seen in the first pic above.


That's a good idea. Thanks

This is one of the two pencil poppers I tied from sheet foam, the recipe called for the outer foam to be tied down, hence the need for a strong outer coating.

Linecaster,

Nail polish works good as a topcoat, Stephen Roberts uses that on his bream bugs. I'll often use clear nail polish as a topcoat when I use colored nail polish to color my little bugs.

Look forward to pics.

Norm, I have Silver Creek on order awaiting delivery any day now.
I used the Fabric Fusion last night began with a 50/50 and then went up to about 70/30 mix which for this impatient dude worked better. The poppers look good but want to give a third coat tonight. Fusion coating looks good and is doing what I wanted to protect the thread tie.
If I have time I will post a picture and you will see why a covering for this one is important.
I had already placed the eyes before reading your tips on how best to fit them, will see how they last on Saturday early am.

Great fly
