I decided to take Ankie Daanen's sculpting lessons that are currenly running in Doll Crafter magazine. So far, this has been the easiest time I have had sculpting a head.
I am using paperclay because that is what I have on hand. Ankie recommends Darwi clay, but I figure I am just practicing.
I like how the head came out, although I did not get the ears exactly the same. I think it is the right hand/left hand thing. I am extremely right handed so the left side is kind of wacky.
