These are only examples, Every Head on this website is available as a model



The Model Kits are Full Size Heads that you, the Modeler, paint yourself. From experienced Modelers to the Beginer, a GIGANTIC 1:1 Model offers oportunities for detail and realisim that a miniature scale model can not give. If you are painting a miniature model you can only suggest eye detail, but with a full scale BIG HEAD you can paint in every pulsating vien. You will have a tremendous sense of acomplishment when you point to your finished work of art and say "I MADE THAT !!!"

The Model Kits are made of Tuff-Cal Gypsum Cement. They are cleaned and prepared, then painted with white primer. They are ready for you to paint right out of the box. The Models can be painted with Acrylic Paint found at Wal-mart or craft stores like Michaels. The brands include Apple Barrel, Craft Smart or Ceramcoat. It costs about 50 cents for a 2 oz. bottle.

The way I paint is to paint all the sections in a base coat. The basic color of the skin , costume. and hair. Then I mix a darker tone in a thin wash, and wash it over the head; Wiping the excess off. The wash brings everything together and evens it out and accents the cracks. Then I do a Dry brush to pull out the detail of texture that can be best appreciated in the full scale model. Dry Brushing is done with a lighter accent color of the base color. The paint should be thick. Then wipe off most of the paint from the brush on a newspaper. Next, quickly streak the brush down from above. This will paint the top texture of the piece and really punch it. Then paint in the detail and eyes. Don't forget to Gloss the eyes with clear nail polish. This high thick gloss will bring the Head to life. Don't ever worry about making a mistake. You can always paint over it. Feel free to experiment!

The prices for the Model Kits are about the same as the Heads painted in a single color. Beacause of differnt prices and shipping costs, please email me for an exact price before ordering, and list the head(s) you are interested in purchasing. I can then send you a custom invoice.
