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.


yes, if the eyes were round it would me much easier to make them move.

AH! I think I have a plan now! gosh that was tough XD. thank you all for helping me out, your tips were Extremely useful! bye for now! Bill

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

and I think you might be on to something with googly eyes XD.

to give a better idea of what I'm thinking. the bottom right is the inside of the mask.

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.
