Begin the texturing process by applying a light layer of the texturing paste (such as spackle or Polyfiller) to the horns. Once you are sure it is adhering properly, continue to build up layers to the desired thickness (thickest point will be 1.5 centimeters). Work on one horn at a time. Develop the contouring as seen in the reference photo. Cover the area with cling wrap and put in the texture lines. A light blow from the hair dryer will help to remove wetness from the paste to keep the cling wrap from sticking.
Move on to the eyes. First build up the folds around the eyes, then use Nolan's technique for rolling the paste to sculpt the eyelids and make the eyeballs. Do the right eye first, then the left. Use the template often to be sure you have the lines in the correct places.
Continue on to the nose. Lay the texture paste in a ramp-like fashion, gradually adding depth until you get to the nose. Contour the three planes of the nose. Use your finger to form the inside of the nostrils and then the knife to cut in the little lines on his nose.
Shape the ear next. Follow Nolan's technique to get the shaping correct. Note that you will lift the ear away from the body at the top and bottom. Sculpt in all the little fine lines.
The last spot to be formed is the bottom jaw. Taper it off to the upper jaw.
Allow the texturing to dry overnight. Make an needed corrections after it has dried. Be sure that the texturing is tapered off at the edges so that it will fit into a frame.
