    The inner ear is opened up a bit more, again using a round stylus.

    A small ball of Sculpey is used to form the earlobe. The piece is flattened and blended into the rest of the air.

    the earlobe after blending.

    Before the head is baked I'll go in and trim up the outside of the ear, I normally will go back in and do a little more clean up.

    I want the figure to look tired, therefore I need to open the mouth a bit and raise his brows. I only have a couple pictures showing what the mouth looks like. I looked in the mirror (scary) so I could get the mouth to look right. I only added a little more Sculpey to what I already had. The challange was to get the mouth to look right with the material that was already there.

    After the mouth is complete I'll start work on the brow.

    Excellent Gary. I'm curious how you intend to graft the head to the body. Will it be seperate and fit into a socket made by the clothing?

    John, Thanks. Once the head is baked I will cut the rod the head is mounted on, leaving enough for the length of the neck. This way I'll be able to manipulate the rod for both the neck and copper wire for the arms to achieve the figure's pose. Once positioned I may lock it in place with putty, though I have not made a final decision. The head like the arms will end up as separate pieces.~Gary

    Hello Gary,

    Astounding s-b-s! (y)

    I particular like your very logical method of doing the ear. Might try it myself.

    Thanks for sharing! :)

    Extremely informative Gary. I'm really enjoying this one - I have messed around with Sculpey a bit but haven't really had the courage to attempt anything like a head with it.

    Understand I am only harrassing you in fun..... but get moving, I am caught up to you in my work along and can't wait for the next post.......

    I am really enjoying working along with you on this and look forward to each new post. I can't wait till you start clothing the figure. I am anxious to see how you do the wrinkles.....
