Get the most out of your investment

3 for 1 – Buy one face cast and get three!

I know, plaster casts – expecially the busts – are a very expensive investment. And what if you would like to make two cast drawings with a face?

As a student you don’t really need the decorative aspect that a bust brings but rather serving as a reference to practise. So in the end you need the bust only once and when you are done with your cast drawing you won’t need it anymore.

To get the most out of your investment, why not buying two or more busts at once for the price of one?

“What? Who is selling this?” are you saying?

Instead of drawing from a classical bust which has only one face to draw you can buy reliefs with 2 or 3 faces.

Look at this face of an old man. I know, this guy looks creepy but it serves its purpose very well.

And what’s with this one? It is one face of a boy and one face of a man plus additional folds to practise.

While I researched for this blog post about face references to draw from I stumbled across the same vendor who has very good references for figures:
