Sculpting sections: Gathering the different sculpting sections in one place. If you're new to sculpting with polymer clay start from the top and work your way down.

Dworkin, 1999: Here is one of my first sculptures and it was for Jen of Austin TX. She used to play Everquest and this was a character she had created. Using a picture that she sent to me I sculpted this Gnome and surprised my own self with some of the tricks I fell over. Check out how his face is sculpted. For those who don't want to mash away at clay to get a certain look, put balls of clay down and then lay skin clay over it and smooth it on the balls. Do that as an alternate to putting balls of flesh colored clay on a blank face.

So check it out for some ancient clay history for my sculpting journey. Jen says with all her moves he is still in one piece. Cool.

09-19-03: Review of Faces and Figures This page holds a bunch of links that will walk you though making figures. From mixing skin colored clay, the aluminum foil armature, sculpting faces, everything I discovered in my experiments in clay. 

There's other ways of making figures to be sure. All I can share is what I discovered. Know that I aim to keep things cheap, relatively simple and easy.
