How to make moving eyes in a mask? Answered

Hi, I'm working on a skull mask based off a drawing of mine. I want to make it out if carved polystyrene, and put a black mesh in the eyes. Over that, I wanted the white triangular eyes to move around to make different expressions. but I'm having a hard time thinking of any good designs that would work fluently, and consistently. help and tips would be much appreciated :D Cheers, Bill.

Maybe a display of some sort? You could probably control that too, so that's a plus. Also possibly giant googly eyes?

I don't understand exactly what you're trying to do, but I can only think of Mark Rober's halloween costume with a phone, Google it.

yes that was an idea, using a phone. but I'm afraid I don't have one XD. but the effect I'm trying to pull off is for the diamond shaped eyes to move around in there sockets. I didn't want them stuck looking strait ahead, left or right.
