How to attach a silicon mask to the moving parts of an animatronic head?

Hi all!

I’m making an animatronic human head and I’m at the stage where I’ll be adding servos and wires controlling the lips and very soon I’ll be making a mask in silicone for it.

There are quite a lot of instructions on the net on how to make masks out of silicone and many on how to make the animatronic parts but I haven’t seen a single place that shows how people make the different “servo muscles” connect to the silicone.

Does anyone here have experience with this?

Don’t know if this is the right place to ask for this – it’s really hard to find a forum for these kinds of things. If anyone knows of a better forum I’d also be very happy!
