By the way – you can use the techniques in this video to make any kind of face – it doesn’t have to be a silly Wild Man – but this one was fun. And you don’t need to use the WED clay for the initial form – any kind of clay will work. Use whatever kind you have on hand.
Since making this little portrait I wrote a new book called Fast Faces – Unleash Your Creativity with a Friendly Lump of Clay. There’s no paper mache in the book, but it will give you some great ideas if you’d like to try making face sculptures, just for fun.
