Wow, this is great, I love it.
I would love to be able to sculpt but have never had the courage to try other than a small Venus of Willendorf statue.

The craftsmanship is very good, yes, but I'm most impressed with the movement. I don't suppose it was easy working in not only a three-dimensional space, but a twisting, curving, fourth-dimension that encompasses action through time. Nice job.

I use aluminum armature wire. The mass of the hair was then built up with wire form mesh and
majic sculpt. ( epoxy clay ).

Actually I misspelled it. It's Magic-sculpt. You can order it from Kit kraft.
Here's the link.
