I am using a Hard Resin Face mold to create these faces.
The key to these molds is to condition the mold with shortening or vegetable oil. Once the mold is conditioned the gum paste will release easily. I am using chocopan gum paste, this is the only gum paste I have found that gives me time to work on the face and does not dry up to fast and still keeps the shape. You can use any gum paste that you are familiar with. It better to stick with what you have worked with in the past because you know what you can do with the gum paste.
I use americolor gel colors and dilute them with just water to paint the eyes.
I hope you enjoy these short videos.
