Addin the veins

Mike uses a fine red thread to add the veins to the white part, or schlera, of the eye. This gives them some dimension-not as flat as in the old days, when they used colored pencil.  
There is a clear shell that fits over this painted eye, and it is bonded and fused to the prosthesis so that the paint, threads and all of that aren't on the surface any more. The clear shell is polished up so that it is smooth an shiny.
