Well, here she is so far. I was just playing around with the wig she's wearing. She'll have the black hair with white streaks eventually. Still got lots to do with her, like ears and a tongue. I'll post how-to's when I get her finished.

LB,

Excuse my ignorant question, but from the description of the hair, I assume this is going to be the bride of Frankenstein??
Yes Richie, she is indeed the "Bride" of one of your favorite characters, good 'ol Frankie.

Wow...that's wonderful. I can't wait to see her done. I hope you don't mind I post these photos for you. I thought you might like to see the work of a wonderful artist by the name of Jack Nisi, who recently died unexpectedly. I thought you might appreciate some reference photos of some of his best Bride heads, not to mention some variations in the hair. The first 4 photos are truly amazing and the finest recreation of that character ever made. The second bunch of photos was a slightly different version he did later on. I'm not sure what is available online for reference photos for you, but these should really help

Wow. Looks great!

Personally, (as someone who has never tried such a project) would love
to see pictures taken throughout the process...

The results are incredible. I consider myself to be somewhat artistic, but I can't imagine coming up with those kinds of results, even if I were experienced.

Thank you everyone. She is made up using a styro wig head, Celluclay for a base and buildup, then Paperclay on top of that. The Paperclay is what gives her that nice smooth texture. I also sanded it a bit with 120 grit drywall sanding screen. This stuff doesn't clog up like sandpaper.

I'm speachless. Absolutely incredible! I would have never guessed that paperclay could have been used in that way.
