    Don't know if it will be so much a tutorial, but I've decided to revisit one of my old props and attack it with some lessons learned. Back in 2012 I created the original Trevor. It was meant to be a one-off, and sold after Halloween that year. I was unhappy with a couple little...

    I'll be sculpting a full head latex mask pretty soon, and just bought some WED clay for the sculpt.

    There was a post a while back that someone had modeled the Madame Leota face from the tombstone and was selling casts of this. I REALLY need to get one and my "search-fu" is not strong today. Does anyone know the link or can PM me details? Thanks: Rich.
