Another quick post to show the progress on this sculpt. The face is starting to find its shape and the ear is in the first stages of being formed, I’m now not far off from giving it its first bake in the oven. The hat, hair and clothing will be sculpted over the hardened clay using the Sculpey glue to help adhesion – I like to partially bake the clay when the head is almost complete so not to damage the work with further handling.  A little way to go to tweak the sculpt nearer the image, but not that far off…
