    Sculpting a BP part 1 **DU NO NO!

    Well to answer your question Shel, I sculpted the head and body (not shown yet) all by hand. As for the heat pits and mouth it was all carved useing the strate Pick.

    Here is a Pictural to show how I made the head.
    Enjoy

    I started out with a lump of clay that i thought would be about the right size and then rolled it into a ball.



    I then shaped the head useing my fingers and rolling them to make the nose.
    I pressed in the sides of the nose to make the typical Ball Python Nose.



    It should end up looking something like this


    If your having problems remembering the 3D aspects of a BP head, ask for help from one of your own "Model" BPs like this one.

    Re: Sculpting a BP part 1 **DU NO NO!

    Make shure that the sides of the head look good as well. you could have an awesome looking head but later find out your BP head has a lump on the top of the head you dont know about.


    now it is time to make the Nasal ridges, place your thumb and finger and press in at the top of the nose.



    now this will make the crown of the head to pop up a bit so press it back down and smooth it out.


    Now for the eyes! make the small lobes at the sides of the mouth where the eyes will sit above. *again you might need your BP Model for this.


    now you see the lobs and indents where the eyes will sit above.

    Re: Sculpting a BP part 1 **DU NO NO!

    I use stone beads for eyes that look to be a good fit.


    I place the eyes in the right spot and then press in.
    It will look very out of place with the eyes in but we can fix that.



    I take some more clay and roll it long. I then take pieces off of it roll it again and place it around the eyes.




    I smoth it out untill nice an flush. Repeat on the other side.


    And there you have it. The start of your BP head.


    **I'm finished, Fell free to post now

    Any particular kind of clay you use?

    Does it work as well with, say Fimo?

    I use Sculpy or any good Polymer Clay. I like Sculpy because it carves and paints nicely
