Facial Reconstruction

For my final project of 2nd year, I completed a facial reconstruction, using traditional methods of the forensic industry. I obtained my skull from an Anthropology tutor at Portsmouth University. The skull was European, Caucasian and between the ages of 28-35.


Caroline Wilkinson heavily inpisred me, she is a pioneer in this field and her book ‘Forensic Facial Reconstrcution’ was immensely helpful with this project.


I used Plastiline an oil-based clay as it’s what I’m comfortable working with. I also made a video to show my progress with the project, as after all, the finished piece would appear to be just a head sculpt.
