Step 8: Upper Lip

 

  1. Form a little lip shaped lump of putty and stick it on above the lower lip.
  2. Using a metal tool, press the top of the putty in and up, adhering the lip to the body and removing excess putty.
  3. Using clay shapers, smooth out fingerprints, shape the lip, and begin blending the new putty up into the old.
  4. Using a well lubricated, metal burnisher (curved spoon like tool), pull the thin area of new putty up over the old putty until it is very thin.  This takes a bit of practice to get it seamless. You want the putty to thin to nothing, but not to rip.
  5. Using a clay shaper, continue blending the edge until you can no longer see it.
  6. Using a scalpel or hobby knife, texture the lip with fine lines.

The only step left is to finish off the model (which I'll do tomorrow, I think).

Hmm, I wasn't really thinking of them in terms of casting.  There are a lot of considerations a sculptor needs to make before starting a sculpt if it is to be cast. Unfortunately, I don't really have the time today to go into it here today.  Casting considerations is a part of my class at ReaperCon.  Right now I'm swamped getting ready for the Con.  Maybe afterward I can pull together a tutorial here on sculpting for the mold.
