Sculpting Video

Today I watched a video about sculpting the head of a child. The Art of Sculpting with Philippe Faraut Volume 1: Children. I enjoyed the video very much, even in VHS format. It is 89 minutes in length. A friend of mine loaned it to me.

Philippe shares his step-by-step method of construction, as well as a guide to catch and correct common mistakes, while demonstrating in his favorite medium; wet clay.

In his sculpting demonstration, he sculpts this portrait of his daughter:

He starts with a ball of paper taped up and placed on a wooden dowel stuck in a modeling board. Using his hands, and some common sculpting tools, he uses water clay to make the portrait.
