In this post of making of the eye model making(3D) – diy science project
If you’re interested in creating an anatomical eye model with a bulb-shaped design, you can follow these steps using simple materials:
Materials you’ll need:
- Light Bulb (choose a size suitable for your desired eye model scale)
- Acrylic paints (blue, green, brown, or any color you prefer for the iris)
- White glue
- Black marker or pen
- Prepare the LED Light Bulb : The LED Light Bulb ball will serve as the main structure of the eye. If it’s too large, you can carefully trim it down to your desired size using scissors.
- Create the sclera: Take the white modeling clay and shape it around the LED light bulb to cover it completely. Smooth out the clay to form a uniform layer, resembling the white part of the eye known as the sclera. Ensure the clay adheres well to the ball. You can use white glue if necessary.
- Form the cornea and iris: With the clay still pliable, use a toothpick or thin wooden stick to gently make an indentation in the center of the clay-covered ball. This indentation represents the cornea. Next, form the iris using additional pieces of colored modeling clay (blue, green, brown, etc.). Flatten a small piece of colored clay and carefully place it in the cornea’s indentation.
- Add details: Use the toothpick or stick to draw lines on the iris, creating the appearance of the iris fibers. Be creative and make the iris as detailed as you like. You can also add a small black dot in the center of the iris to represent the pupil.
- Texture and paint: To give the eye model a realistic texture, you can gently create tiny irregularities on the sclera and cornea using the toothpick or stick. After allowing the clay to dry (if using air-dry clay), you can paint the different parts of the eye. Use acrylic paints to color the iris, and make sure to paint the sclera with white paint or a slightly off-white shade.
- Final touches: Once the paint has dried, you can use a black marker or pen to outline the iris and add more definition to the details. Be careful and precise while doing this step.
- If you want to display the eye model, you can glue the bottom of the LED Light bulb to a small piece of cardboard.
