Diagram: Moving Puppet Eyes

Diagram: Moving Puppet Eyes

I’ve gotten a couple of questions about how to make moving puppet eyes. Here is a basic diagram I drew- of how to make eyes which move back and fourth. I apologize that the drawing is rough; my WACOM tablet is at work so I had to draw this using a mouse. 🙂 The first diagram is the front view- please take note that the screws used are ordinary wood screws. The next diagram (to the right) is the back view. The bottom left is a side and the bottom right is a top view. If you have any question email me at info@puppeteersunite.com. Thanks, and enjoy!

    What are the eyes made of?

    Is there a simpler way to make eyes/eyebrows move for a half body (foam) puppet.
