Custom Portrait Bust – Buffalo Soldier

This post is showing where I am so far on a 4 ft. tall Buffalo soldier sculpture made of foam and epoxy. I am using a hard foam coat on most of the non detailed parts and then epoxy clay (magic sculpt) on the detailed parts of the face.

I started by laminating some rigid foam.
