Create your own collectible mini busts, ready for production! In this intense 4-Day course, you will learn how to create your own mini collectible character / creature bust from clay to resin, beginning with character/creature concept design fundamentals. Next you will learn about posing to make your creature have more character with only the use of the head and shoulders. Then you will learn sculpting techniques used by masters in the industry, how to properly gate your sculpture utilizing a Giles Precision Waxer, so you can properly mold your sculpture in silicone, and then you will learn how to cast your mini bust in resin. Finally, you will learn various professional approaches to painting and finishing your mini bust for display and for your portfolio. This course will consist of lectures, demonstrations, and HANDS-ON learning. All materials included, including a sculpting tool set for you to keep! Also, as an added bonus, you will learn how to fabricate your own custom sculpting tools! Be prepared to take notes.
