    Hello Anders,

    Your two recent sculpts are top-notch. Rgds Victor

    Thanks guys!!

    Yes, I might have it done for Euro, it all depends on how the face sculpting goes. In the pictures as you can see there is not much of a likeness to Jefferson. At this stage it is simply a slighlty modified Hornet head, but need to work on the nose, cheeks and a bit on the chin to make more of a resemblance to the man himself.

    Hi Anders,
    great sculpt :eek:
    please, can you tell me how you did the buttons ?

  5. Anders Heintz Well-Known Member

    Thanks, I'll have him at Euro!


    The buttons were punched out of thin lead foil with the back of a drill bit, just select the size of button you need and find an approproate sized drill bit, use the back side (the side that goes into the drill motor/vice) and put the lead foil inyour palm, and press the drill bit through the leadfoil, sometimes you need to twist the drill bit a little, but you will punch through the lead foil and a little button will end up in our palm. It is a lot harder to describe then it is to do, it is very simple, and very fast to do. Hope this helps a little bit, I'll take some pictures next time to explain it better!

    Anders, I like your sculpting, and I like this one too, very clean work and interesting subject matter.

    This is a very nice looking figure Anders and you are capturing the human form very well lately mate, you have definetely captured an ellegance to the figure which depicts the period well.
