Attaching control cables to silicone mask
I'm making an animatronic head with silicone skin. The goal is that it should be able to "talk" as realistically as possible. Currently I am working on casting the silicone skin and working out the bowden control cables coming from the servos and how they attach to the skin.
My initial idea to attach the silicone skin to the control cable was to embed small neodymium magnets in the skin that would snap to soldered metal points on the cable. I think this will work well on the eyebrows but in the upper and lower lip the magnets would be so close together that I think they will snap to each other instead of the control cable.
I haven't seen any images/videos or any information on how other people make their silicone mouth stick to the control. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions?
If it's not clear what I'm trying to do I can provide some pictures/drawings.
