    Hey guys! So I've decided to have a go at making a partial and this is my first attempt at a head. I thought it would be a good idea to post pics and update you guys as I go so I can maybe get some tips from you and update you on techniques I use and mistakes I might make. So far I'm at the point of furring. but I took some progress pictures along the way! Any advice/comments are appreciated. c:
    Materials:
    Plastic sheets
    Faux fur
    Faux Leather
    Fleece
    Buckram
    Acrylic paint
    High density foam (green)
    Low density foam (white)
    Sewing pins
    Needle and thread
    Hot glue
    Plastic bags
    Duct tape
    Various cutting tools

    Pic 2: Base before it was smoothed out into the exact shape I wanted. It took me about 5 hours to get it like this.

    Pic 3: Nearly finished base with eyes in for reference (they are not installed yet) It took me close to 8 hours to get here.

    That's really good, I never would have guessed it was your first head! Have you started adding the fur yet?
