Sorry again that I've been absent for a week or two, but I have plenty of pictures to share with you. A had to make a large beak out of platsacine for a giant crow, as you can see from the pictures below.
They show the development in sculpting something like this. We always start with a simple 'ball' of plastacine, and it's gradually formed into the desired shape. As I didn't need to shoot with it straight away I protected from dust it with clingfilm.
