The embalming process begins with the "suiting up" so to speak of the embalmers (morticians) to protect themselves from any body fluids and from the chemicals they use to embalm and clean with. From there, there are usually four parts: Arterial embalming, Cavity embalming, Hypodermic embalming, and  finaly Surface embalming. These practices are known as restorative arts, and are practiced by most funeral directors.

Eye caps are used during the embalming process as, after death, the eyes can shrink and cause a hollow look. The eye cap is placed over the eye and then the lid is closed over them. Usually, but not always, a glue is used to keep the eyelid closed.
