I used moss and Eeonyx StaTex Conductive Fiber to create a sensor that can be worn on the face and stroked. I’m wearing fishnet material that is keeping the sensor in place. It’s running through Max MSP and you can hear the change in sound according to how the moss is stroked or pressed. A further iteration would be to use something that operates off of bluetooth, for freedom of movement.
When measured with a multimeter, the resting current was 13.k, and with petting and pressing it, it would range from 10.5k to 16k.
