The lenses are also hand painted, no gloss or glass. The "glue" is actually a sculpting material I used to fill the gaps but botched a bit. That shouldn't happen anymore since I got a fine sanding bit for my dremel.
That's an awesome idea. I agree with the gap-filling needing a bit more polish, but other than that it's a great execution of an amazing concept. If you do more in the future, please upload them for the viewing pleasure of, well, this guy. (Had to work some ego in somewhere.)
