    The last thing that was done before starting to fill out the face/head was to sand around the cheek and lower jaw rounding the areas off.

    Gary, I'm watching this very closely. My approach is somewhat similar but it's great to be able to incorporate other people's techniques along with yours.

    I totally agree Stephen. Every little "trick" helps, right? :lol:

    I wanted to get most of the facial features roughed in before posting them. I have a lot of photos to sort through and will post them tomorrow. Here is another photo I'm going to use in sculpting the face. If you're wondering it is not a period image but one taken of Jason by wetplate Photographer Rob Gibson of Gettysburg, PA.~Gary

    I decided to thin out the foundation for the nose a little so I'll be able to have more control over the final width.

    As you can see in the profile I cut a small angled piece \ from the tip of the nose.

    A layer of Sculpey is added to the areas of nose, mouth, chin, and lower jaw. Before adding these additional layers a bit of Sculpey Diluent is applied by finger to help this area adhere better to this surface that has been previously baked and sanded.

    The head at this stage. The main purpose here is to block in the planes of the face, in addition to giving equal time to the entire face instead of concentrating on one feature at a time.

    I'm going to start filling out the mouth. I first note the mouth with a line and two vertical lines indicate the far corners of the mouth that also line up with the center of the eyes.

    The are of the bottom lip and chin can be made by cutting or pressing in the area where it resembles a wide open < shape.
