Following up on one of my 2016 New Year Resolution: take sculpting lessons.
So I purchased several sculpting courses from Philippe Faraut.
Here is the result:
Course – “The Art of Sculpting with Philippe Faraut: Men” on DVD.
The course is about 1.5 hours long, very good (excellent, in fact) instructions.
The results of the first head attempt are on the photos below. I am happy and looking forward to improving.
If you like the Head Stand, it is available at Morezmore in 2 sizes:
– Mini (1:12-1:6 Scale)
– Medium (1:6-1:2 Scale)
By the way, it was a beautiful spring morning in Pennsylvania on that day.
This part is not from the course. Here I am trying to figure out how to make a hollow head – for ball-jointed dolls. The idea is to cut the head open at the hairline later. The ball is PP (polypropylene). The melting point for polypropylene varies from 130 to 171 °C (266 to 340 °F). The PP balls that I am using are doing fine at 275 degrees F (the temperature for polymer clay).
