I just got this as a present and I think anyone who's been interested in sculpting but is afraid to drop a bundle to start up a hobby they may or may not like should look into this kit!
It's based off the TV show CSI that I don't think I've ever seen (I only watch the 24 hour news and cartoons channels) but it is an amazingly complete FX sculpting kit for only $20 at toys are us. It comes with a lifesize facial feature sculpting book that contains information I learned by trial and error over a year of sculpting - you'll learn in minutes! The clay you will recieve is high quality plastillina used in movie FX and mold making so you can sculpt over and over and your clay will never dry out. You can even make molds directly off your sculpted face since this clay is sulphur free so you can make your own halloween masks for next year if you wish.
There are Mr potato head type features you can add like an armature for the ears and eyeballs, nose two sprues of skin depth markers to add before you start putting clay on it but I suggest not using them as real faces are all slightly different. Rather use reference photos of the person you want to try sculpting.
This isn't an ad for whoever put out this kit (OK, it is kind of!) because I am simply astounded by what simply great kits they have for kids (and big kids like me) nowadays! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
