What you'll do
I'm looking forward to taking you on this exciting journey, teaching you how to immortalise a loved one. What you will need:- A tablet with at least one good profile photo and one good full face photo loaded onto it. But the more good photos, the better will be the result. What I supply:- A small, slightly larger than fist size blank clay head. All tools, materials, equipment and drinks. This is where it gets exciting. Using an App we will start to build a Likeness-: 1...getting all the facial features in the right place from a good profile photo. 2...Then we flip the portrait round and repeat the process on the other side. 3…We now shape the head and neck from the profile photo. 4... Put on the ears. 5...having all features in the correct place we draw a centre line down the middle of the face to see the differences on both sides. 6...Now we shape the neck and collarbone area. 7...Put on the hair 8...Now we go over the whole portrait refining all the features. You will be amazed at your ability to produce a likeness in just 4hrs. The portraits need to dry thoroughly before firing this will take about 6 weeks, then your portraits will be ready for collection
I can teach a complete beginner how to sculpt a Likeness in Clay. I have developed a unique method of teaching Portraiture. Normally a 20hr course this is a 4 hours taster session to see if you like, & have a natural aptitude for portraiture.
