Fingers Tim blocks the piece out using only his hands.
Intermediate Shapes Once the basic forms are there, Tim uses a relatively broad rake to judge the evenness of the surface.
Sketching Tim literally 'draws' the face onto the piece using a loop tool.
Features As the nose and facial creases emerge, Tim adjusts the shapes using smaller loops.
Brush Selection Using different brushes, Tim works the surface to a more refined stage.
Smoothing Using a furniture sponge, Tim brings the surface to a smooth finish to make sure he doesn't have any high or low points.
Contour The smooth surface brings all the lines to life.
Detail Tim uses reference from ancient Egypt, and a tiny loop to add geometric design elements.
Dry Brush Burnishing Tim powders the finished sculpture and vigorously brushes the surface.
The Finished Sculpture The sculpture, now complete looks like it was made TODAY. That won't last long!
The Next Phase Next Tim will bring the piece through an unexpected molding process which will 'add age' by its very nature.
