Would anyone share where they get glass eyes both human and reptile and radio systems?

Are you making a moving eye portrait? Far as fake eyes. If you want glass eyes you can get them online from a taxidery supply company. I just buy fake eyes from the Skeleton Store. They only run about four dollars a pair. Anything else far as motors that you need you can find at Radio Shack. We are working on something similair it sounds like. Only we are putting moving eyes in a mannequin. We are using a motor out of color wheel that is in a fiber optic halloween witch. Then adding a parts from an r.c steering mechanism to rig the eyes to move left to right. Also Eric Princz has a segment on H.W 1 on something like this.
