Head Modeling Demo by Guilherme Pires


Guilherme Pires is a clay artist from Brazil who creates the cutest clown figures and one-of-a-kind character dolls from homemade cold porcelain.  In the following video, Guilherme shows us how he models the head and face of his figures.  First he models a girls face then changes it to a male face.  Next he ages the features and then...watch and see!
Guilherme says the secret to success is to model faster and to practice forming the clay in just the right spot.

  4. Wonderful how the character changed. Then I had to laugh at the end because that is often what I end up doing with my clay and my friend wants to die. Great vid.

Sorry I had to re-instate the 'word verification'...I'm getting far too much spam in the comment box.
