Skull sculpt

I am working on a new clay sculpt. It’s a human skull 1:2 scale or maybe closer to 1:3 scale. I put the can to give it scale. I hope it turns out well. It should take a couple of more Sundays but I am happy with the progress so far.

I love it. I want to get into sculpting so bad but don't think I'd have the patience. What kind of clay are you using? water or oil?

I haven't seen a Pabst Blue Ribbon in some time:D
Patience is the key. To get to this point I am guessing around 12 hours. Also, the clay I am using isn't helping. It's Jolly King Plasteline. I think it's a wax based clay. I have a ton laying around from molding my human skulls. When I started to mold and sculpt the skull I was thinking of a Randotti medium skull thing. Man I love Randotti skulls. As far as getting into it, just do it. It's cheap and if you don't like it, mash it up and try it again.

Update on sculpt

Sorry it’s been so long. My father had a heart transplant and sculpting was the last thing on my mind. But, he is doing well and I got back to my sculpt. The skull is shaping up nicely. The teeth are very difficult, not that I thought it would be a snap. But, I am guessing that I have no less than 20 hours to go before I am done. I can’t wait to mold this guy!

I have downloaded two PDF's from the 2020 site. Too big to place here.

If you want them, PM me and provide email.
The company that owns the product is called Pathway Polymeres. This is the third company to own it since I have been using it. I get mine from a local pottery store here in Seattle. A two gallon kit is about $150. I just checked thier website a they do have a good instruction PDF. Back when I started using 2020 there was no information other than mix them together. With each new ownership the directions got better. I wish I had these instructions back then. Oh, it's under products-Por-a-mold then scroll down to data sheet.
