Heat guns and synthetic hair don't mix!

I had the hair on pretty good, and then thought I should put a bit more color on her face...even though I covered everything but the face with a wet towel her hair ended up with a huge singed ball in the back....hopefully I can finish her up tomorrow before I go to Jilly's to host Karaoke!
Still want to do a bit more on her face though!

More #16, body parts done!

At this point I have the torso hardened over aluminum foil core, hand drilled neck arm and leg holes, made the arms and legs over heavy wire, and am ready to use a small amount of epoxy 2 part glue and, one at a time glue them in, sculpt the gaps, and harden (heat gun)them to the torso. To be continued!

Making #16

I got a good start on my next sculpture. She is looking like Angelina Jolie, who is in my opinion, very beautiful! I had thought I'd do another mermaid, but I'm still not sure! Here's pics taken in progression. More to come!
