Using oil based clay, Dale Power takes the reader through all the steps needed to sculpt human heads and complete animal figures in clay. Instructive line drawings show the proper positioning of features on the human face and three different eye treatments. Two techniques for sculpting human heads are illustrated. For added clarity, every step is accompanied by color photographs. Patterns for two armatures on which to fashion human heads and patterns for two articulated animal frames are also provided. A color gallery gives the reader a final look at finished pieces and presents additional figures to fire the imagination. This book is a valuable reference for anyone wishing to work in clay.
