Facial Expressions with Marlaine Verhelst, NIADA Artist

Facial Expressions

Every class starts with some pictures for inspiration but Marlaine also suggests to try the facial expression with your own face. First of all FEEL what happens with your face and secondly look in the mirror to SEE what happens. 

For this class Marlaine doesn’t describe all basic steps for making a face. You already have some experience as a sculptor or doll maker. The basic steps she teaches in her online sculpting and painting classes. 

The painting will emphasize the facial expressions for sure so marlaine will show all emotions unpainted and painted and give you the directions to make them. 

In this class we work with air dry clay: Darwi or Creative Paperclay. 

The suggestions and techniques can be used for other sculpting materials than air dry clays.
