Yes, I will have to come up with some kind of trick to eliminate the hand shake when I do the eyes, if not I will just add on eyes. It is hard to go over the exact area that you did already, because you have to be so exact. Glad you like them otherwise. This is just some experimenting. I did another batch before these that had a couple of sliders I liked very well. Paint wise, I did that is. There was a slight hook gap problem, but otherwise a decent looking popper.
