Now to Make his Eyes Blink!

Step 41:   Click on Frame 6 to activate this Frame:

Step 42:   Minimize the Rest of the frames: ( DO NOT CLOSE THEM )

Step 43:   Zoom way in on the Worm's eyes on Frame 6 Like this: See Example:

Step 46:   then hold the Clone tool Over the Eye like this
and Click once to fill it in:
( The Size I'm using is 5 But that may change for you )

Step 47:   Notice how it looks like the eye is closed:
Now repeat this step for the other eye:
See Example:

I want you to notice how I'm trying to keep my Clone tool
inside the Ridge line for the eye:
By doing this.. Your eyes should look like this: See Example:

Are you ready to see if all this works?!

Step 48:   Start with frame 1 (Add a new Raster Layer) and Copy Merged
and Past it in A/S as a new Animation: See Note Bellow:

Special Note:

We need all the frames to be the same size:
But we don't have a background on them so they will copy
at a different size if we don't add a New Raster Layer
to frame 1 before We Copy and Past them into A/S:
Once the Size has been set with frame 1 all the rest
will follow: But you will still need to add a Raster Layer
to each one before you Copy and Past: Always Copy Merged:
This will keep each Frame at the Same place in the Series

Step 49:   Add a Raster Layer to all Frames and move the Frame
Above each Raster layer : This will allow you to still see each Frame
in the Title Bar of the Image:

Step 50:   Then Copy Merged and past Frames 2 , 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,
and 10 in One at a time in their place:

Step 51:   Click on Frame 1 and go to Animation/
Frame Properties / Set the Frame speed at: 30

Step 52:   Set Frames 2, 3 and 4 at 20 :

Step 53:   Set Frames 5, 6 and 7 at 35 :

Step 54:   Set Frames 8, 9 and 10 to 20 :

Example of what you should have:

Please do not panic if you have your Frames out of order:
There is a Easy fix to this: See My Example bellow:

Notice how I have one frame out of place: Frame 4 Should be Frame 5:

How to fix this:

Step :  Click on Frame 4 and Copy

Step :  Click on Frame 5 and past after Selected Frame

Step :  Click back on Frame 4 and Delete the frame:
Frames can always be moved:

See Example:
