Okay.. here it is My 2008 Toby Keith ornament for TK fan club  Ornament exchange.
This was the first time I ever attempted to sculpt any human head let alone a well known somebody's head. What do you think?



Based on Toby's new Christmas Album

I do now... Actually I sculpted Toby's head then created a Push mold from the original I made 12 of these ornaments, resculpting Toby's head 12 times would have been too time consuming, I need to send them out This Christmas (lol)
always I wanted them consistent in size

I learned alot using using Maureen Carlson's Book, Family and friends in polymer Clay and How to make Clay characters.

But the book that gave me the courage and belief that I could actually accomplished this was a book I had in my crafting Library for year; Creative Clay jewelry by Leslie Dierks, There is a two page tutorial on how to create face beads, that ironically turned out to be written by Maureen
Its astonishing!!! Really!

Really good job! ...the hat is great too.  So glad to hear you made a mold of the face for a 12 person swap!  Shocked Grin


For the rest of you, sculpting faces is something that can be learned even if one "can't draw" at all or do things like that easily, from the get-go.   Even I, who am not a sculptor, "learned" to do a few fairly reaslistic things just by reading lessons and playing around a little bit for a class I had to teach --and that's saying a lot! 

So if you're interested in doing faces and/or figures, don't think that's closed off to you. 
Maureen's books and videos are excellent places to start, and there are others too --ranging from how to make very simple figures and faces, through Maureen who makes "fanciful" faces and also has one book on more ordinary faces, to how to make extremely realistic looking faces  (...plus many free lessons at my website on the Sculpting pages and the Heads page).
