This is an old commission of mine a candy man bust, here's the sculpt pics

Once the sculpt was done I then added a clay wall to the middle of the bust to separate the front and back halfs of the mould

once the first half of the mould was done, I then removed the clay wall and started on the back side

Once this had done and I had built up sufficient thickness, I popped the mould apart, cleaned out the clay, and mixed a base coat of latex, and brushed it into the mould

once this was built up with a few layers front and back half, I clamped the mould together and used a two part expanding soft foam to fill the cavity, I popped the front of the mould of and was greeted with the polyfoam head

I then based the head in a skin tone after clearing up the mould seam, and added various colours to build a realistic tone up, once this was done I made individual bees and started adding them

Then I was forced to stop due to illness, and the bust was completed by David Lady and his wife, they did a great job, repainting what was there as the buyer wanted a darker tone

the finished bust was then finished by the buyer with clothes and coat and added hook, I think it turned out great
