The Process of Zeke's Head

  • Two thicknesses of wire
  • Aluminium foil
  • Super sculpey
  • White beads for the eyes
  • Acrylic paints
  • Liquid latex
  • Thin bandage foam
  • Standard sponge padding
  • Talcum powder

That's pretty much the total of what went into him, and I'm pretty pleased with the result. It's strong and can take a fair bit of punishment, seems to have a lot of use in him, as well as a lot of flexibility for facial exaggeration and expressions, which is exactly what I was going for. The methods for covering up the edges of the hairline need to be improved a little but do a fairly ok job (it's simply a case of attaching the hair and then using more flesh and hair coloured latex in patches to blend the edges until it looks natural, a better way to do this is yet to be found).
Next up is the body, and a bit more in depth analysis of the process and what techniques I'm taking from where, and what are my own devising.
 Glossing the eyebeads:

Back fo the head and hairline, and acrylic skin painting around the eyes/face.
