As many people on this list have seen/tried, the black bead (or black 
marble) trick is simply to use a black glass marble as eyes.
They are efficient with or without eyelids. They can be attached with strong 
glue, and if you can cover them partly (with the material you use for the 
puppet's material) past their equator, the grab will be permanent. I have 
Jumbo marbles in groovy iridescent colors I'm keeping for a special 

I couldn't find truly black jumbo marbles last time i checked, so I got 
brown ones. No difference from a foot away. It is that dark.
