Over on G+ a very talented sculptor (I can't find his post!!) made an absolutely beautiful Green Devil Face. Once I saw it, I knew I had to add one to my terrain collection!
I'm nowhere near done yet, but I wanted to post.
My first attempt was using Model Magic. I think it turned out OK - and it is certainly light - but the sponginess of the foam made it a bit hard to mold well.
Here are a couple of pics --
I started off with this as a base.
This is more finalized -- except the paint. I needed to add an upper lip, eyes, horns and a little ridge detail on his head.
I decided to try "real clay" -- not that I have ANY EXPERIENCE outside of elementary school with clay -- to make a more detailed face.
I bought a box of terracotta air-dry clay at Hobby Lobby for $5.18 with their 40% off coupon! 10 pounds of clay!!
Here's the WIP of my "real clay" devil face --
I'm much happier with this one. There's good detail. The clay was "formable" and I was able to use tools to make marks and so forth.
I'll get these painted up and mounted to wall sections and then I'll post again!
