8) great sculpting talents there bud, are you going to do the hairs individually :o you must have loads of patience.

Cheers mate, the hair will be handlaid with glue onto the body,starting at the back and coming forward, once i get near the front of the face area, then i switch to individual hairs, punched in one at a time, tedious but looks better than just glued on.
Glad you like the zombie, i can't take all the credit i only painted it, the sculpt was someone elses

Cheers mate, the teeth i'll be making out of plastic, using a product called polymorph plastic, it comes as lots of little pellets, add them to hot water and it becomes malleable, great for doing small bits and bobs like teeth

Amazing work as usual mate - your mate is going to be delighted for sure

Critters, now that's a blast from the past, wonder if it's on Netflix?
