Hi everyone. I studied for 3 months this tecnique and I’d like to share this way to get a realistic iris eye in sugarpaste dolls or figures.
I pic a piece of White sugarpaste for modeling. I draw a circle with black colour. I begin with a very clear colour near the range I decided.
Then I begin to draw very thin stripes from the board toward the centre of the circle.
More stripes of different colours I draw the most realistic the eye will look at the end. When you did stripes enough begin to draw the inner part of iris
At this point paint the pupil
When you think the painted part is ok Let it dry. Get some glucose syrup
And with a little paintbrush pour it on the iris careful not to go outside the boarders.
Let the work dry. This is the final effects.
I use this technique also in small eyes. When dry the glucose syrup become hard.
I hope this tutorial Will be useful.
Ser you. 🤗
