    Hi gang, I was recently commisioned to build a lifesize Jareth. I just shipped him out and he doesnt have his costume on but you can see whats done. It started off as a life cast which I sculpted in the eye area, the back of the head, the neck, and chest area. The client had custom glass eyes made to match Bowies. I also made poseable hands for him to hold his crystal contact juggling globes.

    Not at all!! WOW!! He's gorgeous!! :flirt: I am incredibly impressed!

    What material do you use for a project such as this? And I'm guessing you sculpt for a living. Or at least you should :)

    It's a plastic face cast which is sanded and resculpted. The head is attached to a marketing and the chest and neck are sculpted in apoxie as well. Thanks for you're comments. I do commissions like these *** additional income.
