Here's Project: FRANK N PUPPET Update #2..
After cleaning and tidying, the head has had a considerable amount of colour and shading added to it. This was a base colour for the face, which needed to be a lot lighter than the original skin coloured dye. The lips were also recoloured and highlighted. Once I was happy, the colouring is fixed with heat using a hairdryer.
The eye centres have been added and painted where needed and then sealed with a few layers of gloss coat. The area around the 'iris' has had some suitable shading and some pinky red blood staining, just to give them a hint of realness.
Finally in this stage I cut back some of the eyelid material and added some eyelashes. These are made from foam also, however this is more like thin neoprene foam.
I have photographed it here with the wig that I have chosen for the project ~ again, this gives an idea of the size of the head, as this is a full human size wig and it gives a better idea overall of how it will look. It hasn't been fixed in place yet though and I won't be fixing it til the very end.
This is the head pretty much finished, apart from a couple of tweaks here and there.. So now the construction of the body can start..
Update 3 coming soon..
