There are two videos that make up the armature part because In the first video I only did the head and neck.. But I felt that was not enough to make it a complete sculpture so I added the upper chest and shoulders afterwords, plus I was away from my studio and didn't want to go too far without filming.
I began using my usual methods, compressing aluminum foil into the general shape I was going for, then covered the foil with regular masking tape. I use the tape to protect the clay from the foil in case I have to take it all apart and start over, it keeps the clay much cleaner! The tape also keeps all the foil in place during the claying process. I then cover the tape with a layer of super sculpey (full thickness of the pasta machine) I don't use any of the original sculpey (white stuff) as a base coat because I felt this was not going to be a very big project. So instead I just use the super sculpey this time around.
Good texturing is when you can create the look of real movement in the skin. For example, when a old man turns his head to the side it create wrinkles in the skin that shows the movement of his head turned. This is difficult for me to do as it takes plenty of practice! Even though I'm still not very good at it I still give the effort to try. To make the texture just cut lines into the clay (usually running at 2 different angles) these will be you deepest cuts and show all the main movement in the skin. Once done smooth the cuts with clay softener. Now repeat the process only this time make the cut less deep and finer then the first ones, smooth again. Repeat once more using even lighter and finer cuts. Keep doing this until it looks the way you want it, be careful not to smooth the clay too much or you'll lose the wrinkles your working to create. Remember it takes a ton of practice.... but nothing has to be perfect, as long as your enjoying sculpting, thats all that matters.
I used thin white trim to cover the areas where the contrasting clay comes together using glow in the dark clay. Not only did this do well for trim, but it has a cool effect when the lights are turned out at night! To make them I pushed the glow clay through a extruding tool using the spaghetti tip, or small hole tip. Its a little more work but well worth the consistency.
The video below shows a demonstration of this texture you see here.
