It comes with just about an invisible seam line. It also has it's eyes glossed, so if you just wanted it to leave as is, you could. Is it a perfect likeness? No. But it is very close and the perfect size for my shelves.
At first I decided to make this a dry brush only experiment-
Then finally I said "Who am I kidding?" And added more detail -
It was here that I discovered whey the bust looked off. It was bald! In the film, El Fauno definitely had hair.

Here's where the model sat for a month or more until I got up the courage, and stopped at my fav "online sculpting place" MoreZmore, who has all sorts of supplies for sculpting, dolls and more. I bought some Tibetan wool.
I watcher her video on how to do it, as well as a few others on YouTube
Then I got out my glue, hair and scissors and started in -
The glue I got, Fabri-Tac was the sore spot. You had one chance to get it where you wanted it to go, or if you touched it again it would stick to your fingers and not the model - I learned that a wet finger left the sticky hair where I put it. The other thing was that on one or more of the video's, they say when you come to an end put it on from the opposite angle and this way you don't get an ugly seam line. This didn't work out for me. So what I did in the end was put a drop pf the glue on the model and just jabbed a bit of hair in at a 90° angle. This ended up looking ok for me.
After that I got out the scissors and pretended I was a barber, and grabbed the hairspray to make it stay where I "styled it. ;)
I was done. Is it terrific? No way. But I'm happy with it. Thanks for looking.
