    lovely work on the sculpting.
    Please do not take this the wrong way as I do not know your final vision, but he looks like on of these angry and bitter old buggers that keeps shouting abuse to people simply because they do not know what else to do.
    'stop making that racket' ... 'stop shooting you ball against my wall' .... 'stop looking so cheerful' .... 'go back to where you came from, you have no place here'

    BTW, this last quote has been used against me, and I consider myself in no way a part to any section in society, just a person trying to live to the best of my limited abilities.

    Hi Kev; thaks for your support! I usually get some pictures from internet, specially to make the correct wrinkles in the right place, the texture of the skin, etc.; but to make the expressions of the face I use a mirror that I have in my work bench; then I add the wrinkles, the beard, etc.

    Sir,
    Is that green putty for models you are using to sculpt the face and hair? If not, what is it? looks great so far. I just hope my 1st time sculpting looks as good.

    Hi Chris. Thank you. This green putty is a polymeric putty. I use FIMO Soft.

    Where can you get this polymeric putty?does it dry hard or do you have to cook it in the oven?

    I don't know there, in the US. Here, in the 3rd world is really difficult. You can try with Super Sculpey, that is also a polymeric putty. You have to cook it in the oven to make it hard (about 20/30 minutes at 110/120°C).

    Damn! He is one crusty old bugger for sure. Would be fun to paint. Will he go commercial?
