One-day chocolate sculpting class, making a witch with old face features using dummies. Total height 30cm.
The teacher will start the class with a brief explanation of the theory of facial analysis and will provide the students with a file detailing the process, so that the students can have a theory reference guiding them in their future projects.
The teacher will then list the materials used to make the solid internal structure, explain how to handle it so that it can safely be in contact with food. It will also be explained how to make the sculpture with carved cake inside.
The teacher will then proceed with practical sculpting demonstration, whilst helping the students make their own.
The students will learn how to work with modelling chocolate; how to paste and smooth it out to obtain the best result when making fine realistic facial traits.
The teacher will then show and explain how to texturize the chocolate to create the pores and the wrinkles. After that, she will proceed explaining how to paint and make up the face for a realistic look, using brushes and food colouring.
The final touches of the piece will be made using fondant.
Thus, the resulting piece will prove to be exhaustive in terms of techniques used, techniques which the students will be able to apply and reuse in their own futures creations, thereby open a large scale of possibilities.
