I've also heard that Tear Mender works well for attaching eyes (stick on) to heads made of wool, dubbing, etc., but no actual experiece.
What I do use, is the pink bottle (see below, found at hobby lobby) for securing dumbell eyes after I've tied them to the shank, and to secure the articulation wire and finishing wraps (think head cement) on my streamers. A little goes a LONG way, and the thread seems to soak it up quickly. Be careful that it doesn't soak into your bobbin because you will ruin your thread. It dries pretty quickly and is cheap (compared to uv resin).
The blue/grey bottle is what I use to attach eyes to the heads of streamers (like the Tear Mender above). It won't saturate the material, and it will give you time to position the both eyes at the same time.
Now, I will use uv resin to shape craft fur heads and to seal the head/eyes if the pattern calls for it.
I guess the answer to your question, is you must have multiple adhesion options...as there is not one "ideal" solution. I guess you could use the uv resin for all applications, but I'm cheap and use superglue when I can.
