How to Create Facial Expressions using dots & dashes

Tuesday, 29 July 2014

There are many ways you can give your models expressions and personalities.

Dots & Dashes

TIP - Dip the tip of a cocktail stick into black food colour paste to create round dots.

TIP - If using food colour pens let the modelling paste harden first so you don't tear the surface.

Angry - Make two dots for eyes and one for the mouth. Make a slanting line over each eye angled upwards from above the inner eye.

Annoyed - Make two dots for eyes, a wiggly line for the mouth and for the eyebrows make a tick like shape over the right eye and reverse this for the eyebrow over the left (as you look at the model)

Surprised - Make two dots for eyes, and one for the mouth. For the eyebrows make a slanted line on the outside of each eye.

Happy - Make two dots for eyes, for the mouth a curved smile and for the eyebrows make a small curve above each eye.

Doubtful -  Make two dots for eyes and a straight line for the mouth. For the eyebrows make a straight line above the eye slanting down from above the inner eye.

These are just  few, now you have the basics you can experiment to get the look you want.
