I’ve been working on creating the cast of the television series LOST for a commission client. Just finished head #3. Working with these head-sculpts is really a treat, but it’s also a challenge. The resin of the heads is totally different from the vinyl of fashion dolls. Vinyl has the ability to absorb some of the paint so that blending is possible with a fingertip. The resin heads do not allow for blending. You have to apply many layers to achieve depth and texture, and you have to allow a lot of time in between layers. You cannot remove anything without removing the layers beneath it. But, I love the results!
This is the OSS version of Locke.
