Creating the yes and nose

Here I have started making the nose by pulling up clay from the area between the eye and mouth marks. The eyes have been made by rolling very small pieces of clay into a ball and placing into the eye socket. Then very samll pieces of flat caly are added top and bottom of the eye ball and the clay smoothed out to therest of the face - you can see this in place on the right eye. I have also added some small pieces of clay to the ears and placed that in the mark between the eyes and the mouth area. I think I made my ears a bit on the large size even though I did cut them back from the originals which were overlapping the marked areas. These are also smoothed out. The nostrils were made with a toothpick. so the blank shape is starting to come to life now
