1. A foil head base has been covered with clay. There is a dent across the eyeline, and the lower face and brow appear to protrude. 2.  The eyes have been set - notice the spacing, one eye-width between eyes.  A large inverted V-shape has been placed over the lower face.  This will form the base of the nose and cheek fat-pads. 4.  A strip of clay has been added between the brows for the bridge of the nose.  More clay has been added over the eyes for the eyebrow ridge and upper eyelid.  A small amount of clay beneath the eye forms the lower lid.  The upper lip has been placed.  The nose now has nostrils and sticks out from the fat pads to either side.
