 The mummy's head humbly started off as a plastic skull from Urban Outfitters.

 The skull was then primed in brown to get rid of the original gold paint.

 During the whole process, real mummy's heads were used as inspiration to achieve the highest possible level of realism.

 Once again, DAS modeling clay was used to model the ears.

 The eye sockets are filled with gauze to help with the modeling.

 The skull was then painted bone colour. Ground cork was added inside the eye sockets and nostrils to imitate rot.

 Modeling the face was done in just a few hours. DAS can be painted directly with acrylics without any priming needed.
