    A usually, I sculpted the head in epoxi putti, and the face in FIMO polymeric putty.

    Also the beard and hear in FIMO (white), and the cap in epoxy putty with datails in kneadatite.

    The torso is full made in epoxy putty.

    As I sculpted it separatelly head from torso and from cap, is easier for painting. The paint is acrylic.

    Sculpting of the face is incredible, very smooth & lifelike & it looks even better under paint - what did you use for the eyes?

    Thanks Chris! For the eyes I use small glass beads, so that I can bake the polymeric putty whitout problem.
