What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cover your project with plastic wrap to keep the bodice from drying out and clean while you make the head. Remember to cover all your armature prior to adding any food. To get a better idea of how to sculpt features - watch online how to videos on clay sculpting!

Thank you for your comments, I have her still sitting on my table & when you walk in that room in the dark it looks like someone sitting at the table!! Yes scary!! I did photo document this one step by step already. I need to find the time to post it on my Facebook. Also I'm making a male zombie for this Sunday. (Maybe I'll photo shoot this one too?) Then another one in August. When I have it all uploaded to Facebook I'll try & remember to post an update on here. thanks again
