Hey guys, just finished working on my lockdown project, a life size bust of John/Joseph Merrick based on Christopher Tucker's makeup from the 1980 movie. He's made of fibreglass, cast from an initial monster clay sculpt and finished with acrylics and hand laid mohair. Hope you like it!

Amazing. I once owned Christopher Tuckers original bust of Joseph Merrick.
It was used as a continuity aid and was mainly plaster with surgical foam tumors.
I sold it at auction for £12,000.
