D. ROUGH SHAPE
Now I am going to make a rough face shape – just general planes, major landmarks and indentations. No fine details at this point.

Take “That’s the One” Tool – a basic do-it-all wooden tool. Put a small sausage of clay on the nose.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Seam it and smooth it out with a flat end of wooden tool. When I say “seam”, that means careful attaching of the piece of clay to the head,… … making sure you don’t leave any air bubbles under this new layer of clay, working with small strokes of the tool on the “seam”, then smoothing is with a brush.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Make eye sockets.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Make nose bridge and indentations in the outer corners of eye sockets.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Press in the temples.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Indentations above the eyebrows.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Smooth the clay down from the bottom of the eye sockets.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Smooth the clay down from the nose towards the mouth.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Make three dimples – above the chin and in the corners of the mouth.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Take the fine point dental rubber tool. Tuck the corners of the mouth in. Make the mouth line by gently pressing with the sharp point, … … going from the corner of the mouth to the center (gentle pressing, no dragging or cutting).
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Slightly turn up the upper lip.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Gently press under the lower lip to form it.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Flatten the cheeks.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Take the smoothing brushes. Brush the upper edges of the eye sockets upward. Brush the place above the nose bridge upward.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Brush the eyebrows back down, but not the place above the nose bridge. Brush the outer corners of the eyebrows upward and outward to the temples.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Flatten the forehead above the nose bridge. Smooth the forehead with the brush.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Add small flattened balls of clay for eyes.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Seam them in with a ball stylus.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Brush down the areas under the eyes.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
With the three different ball stylus tools make six shallow indentations on the nose – 3 on each side. Largest – where eye socket meets the nose bridge. Smaller – in the middle of the nose. Smallest – under the nose wings (future nostrils). The nose is NOT flat at the bottom, it is sort of triangular, with the columella hanging down lower than the wings of the nose.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Smooth the nose towards the cheeks, give it a good shape, but without too much detail. If it is too wide – brush from the cheeks onto the nose. If it is too short – down the nose, too long – upwards.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Brush the area under the nose toward the cheeks.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Brush the chin down, make it long and pointed. You will bring it back in the next step.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Form the chin with your fingers. Push the point of the chin slightly forward and up.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
If necessary, add some clay for the jaw bone.
2015-06-2909.27.27
Seam the clay, brush new clay forward, and upward and towards the ears. Then brush again the cheeks down, make them flat from the cheek bone to the jaw bone.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
With the curved end of the “That’s the One” tool form the jaw line. The bottom of the jaw (if you look from the bottom) is sort of flat and triangular, like a clothes iron.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
Check for symmetry.
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27 2015-06-2909.27.27
