Smiling Face

After completing “Looking Home” I wanted to try a full bust once again. This time focusing on proportions and really trying to make it look lifelike.

This piece is also done is Sculpey and took me approximately two months of nights and weekends to finish. The hair ended up being the most difficult part of this sculpt. I originally had it down around the ears, but it made the sculpture look too “clunky” and awkward. Simply pulling it back and sculpting the ears gave a much better effect and composition.

This was molded and cast in plaster, then painted with acrylic mettalic paint like most of my other works. I’m not happy with the finish and still have the molds, so I may re-cast this one and finish it in pure white or black as the detail will show better and it will capture the light and shadows better improving the overall look.
