Boz,
I use the small sculpin helmets ALL the time. I got a solution for you. Hopefully I can explain it enough to follow...here goes:

While the eye is still on the sticky pad it comes on, take a needle (sewing needle) and poke it into the eye. Now wiggle it to free it from the sticky pad. This will allow you to "hold" the eye side with the needle while the sticky side is free. Place a small drop zap-a-gap in the eye indention on the skull and, using the needle, place the adhesive side down on the zap-a-gap. Use your bodkin to hold the eye down while you remove the needle.

No falling eyes & no glue residue on the eye

Here is what my finished product looks like doing it that way:

Hope this helps! PM me if you have any questions
