    After my first attempt at the Joker
    Wanted to have a go at the full head to make a full display, Modding a life cast as its only my second attempt.

    sculpted the missing rear of the head and shoulders, then using monster clay to sculpt the face into the Joker........

    Refined the scar on the last picture , less is more as they say......
    Got a lovely blister on my finger from pressing the clay to stick to the resin cast LoL..

    More work before I cast it but happy so far.......

    Set the eyes in permanent with flesh tone silicone, a bit more paint
    and shot in darker lighting..........

    Going to get the Airbrush out to blend the mouth and eyes, looks a bit to hand painted

    Still after some tips on gluing the hair on mainly the front hair line to get it looking OK.

    Thanks... the paint job was quite a quick one , it tends to look better slapping it on than being fussy
    then the next time I look at it I tend to fiddle some more....got to learn to leave it but I am to much of a fuss pott..LOL
    I am used to using an airbrush on cars and tend to take too long on getting that perfect.....

    Heres the costume..... Got to finish the shoes. add some more detail to the coat ,stitching around the lapels add more accurate buttons and attack it with boot polish.
    the shirt was washed in a dilute black acrylic wash to give it a more screen look, may darken down the waist coat and put the flower and dime button on.
    still looking for some better trousers, going to ask Lindy Hemming for the material supplier but she is hard to get hold of most of the time....
    getting the Gotham manhole to replace the glass base....

    Well done mate, I have been working on my Joker bust for over a year now and keep tearing it down and redoing it, it's a labour of love.

    I am not trying to get a screen accurate version or anything (I think that is practically impossible) but am definitely attempting to get the look that Heath had on his face, problem is that every photo of him looks different, so I am kind of going for my own look but hopefully looking a bit like Heath in the process.

    Good work for your second sculpture, mine is my first!
