    You don't suck! That looks awesome! For a first try it looks really nice! I bet that my first try won't even be half as good.


    BTW.. how did you make it stick to your face?

    thank you man! means alot... but we'll see what it looks like when trimmed (hopefully sanded) and painted...

    oeh well... takes years of nose training

    nah it just kinda... well I donno... lay a flat balloon... or something else .... on your face and it will stay in position... plus the fact it actually has a face model to it...

    thank you!!

    but erhm... this wasn;t that much of a succes.

    I knew Latex would shrink a bit, but this was insane... was about 1/3 of what it was before..

    anyway, threw the latex thing away and saved the plaster sculpt... let's see if I can find some fiberglas around here...

    R Boba Fett,

    Wow! That looks awesome (and I'm purposely not saying "for your first time" because I think it looks awesome period.

    Take care choosing a paint. You don't want to be stuck sniffing something iffy.

    Congrats on your first piece of work.

    Yes, the foam head is a really nice base to start with. I've been thinking about trying to find one myself. I guess a wig or hat shop might have them.

    hobby shops here, just the local one...

    warning though, the clay won't actually stick to the foam, but that's easier for when you get to getting it out of the plaster though...

    still looking for fiberglas...

    It may seem a little obvious but have you tried Ebay?
