More pictures and story on the making of this after the break.
The project started as a sketch. This was done using my softest wax, MwaxZ E. It's like a practice run, seeing how things comes together. After getting the shape right I resculpted the head in my harder wax, MwaxZ L. The harder wax made it easier to add in details without the worry of deformation.

Using epoxy putty, I used MpoxZ, I made a 2 part mold of the head. Then I cast the head by pushing epoxy putty into the mold. The cast needs cleaning up, but because it's done in epoxy putty you can sand, grind, and smooth it. So I did and the I painted with acrylic paint.
Something's off with the eyes, so I repainted the eyes and top coat it in matt varnish. I also use some washes to further blend the skin tone and made it richer. All in all, it's a fun side project to do. And it made me realize that I need to learn more on painting, especially blending with acrylic paint.

That's it for now.
There are some new material in the coming weeks. One of them the tutorial/guide that I've promised many moons ago. Thanks for reading and happy sculpting!
