My wife and I have been watching Face-Off for the past few seasons and we really like the show. I mentioned to her that I would like to try sculpting. For my birthday she bought me a couple of starter kits like this one….



She also bought the Neanderthal kit. I started the Neanderthal kit and this is what it looked like in a couple of hours…..



My wife started the Nefertiti kit and this is how it looked like in a few hours…



Bwahahaha!!

You guys look like you are off to a great start.

Do the kits come with step by step directions? I'd love to sculpt but my artistic ability doesn't match my artistic visions. I fear money invested in sculpting supplies would be money further proving my lack of artistic ability.

Doto....Yes it comes with instructions, the clay is very cheap. We even went to Hobby Lobby and picked up some more for less than $20. I don't have the skills but it's fun just playing around with it.

Looking good. And it looks like you two could have fun working on it together. Kind of a couples date night thing.

Those are pretty awesome, ReaperRick. Is Nefertiti auditioning for a part in the new Haunted Mansion, though?;)

I knew someone who tried and worked and studied for years sculpting. One day his mentor said:"If your next sculpt doesn't improve enough, then you may as well just hang it up, quit."
His sculpt showed that he HAD "Turned the Corner" and was now doing much better work! It would have been a real shame if he had gotten embarrassed, frustrated and merely quit.
You will never know what you can do unless you try, and sometimes try and try and try!
I have seen the person I referred to here make a recognizable head from grey clay in just 25 minutes. Recognizable without hair, eyebrows or skin color!

Nice the way you have done the smile and the teeth are going to make it. Wicked little cuss. Can't wait for the finish. Good job.
