We continue our week of sculpting lessons as Frank Ippolito teaches us how he creates the texture of realistic skin folds and wrinkles on his sculptures. This is the technique he used for the Farnsworth Project sculpt! Follow along with with us by signing up for a Tested Premium Membership here!

  1. Im more into drawing than sculpting and would love to see more kind of stuff on this site, maybe try the same thing and get a 2d artist to teach will and norm

  2. There’s something oddly soothing about the quiet moments where everyone’s intent on their own work and all you can hear is the tools on the clay.

    I love this format, it would be cool to see you guys bring in experts from all sorts of fields (art, woodwork, metalwork, coding, CAD, etc) and have them try and teach you the basics.

  3. Awesome video.. I sent 2 messages with no response so I’ll ask here. I signed up for premium as part of the Adam Savage drawing deal, yet I have never received the drawing. Can someone please look into this or point me in the direction of someone who can?

  4. Kind of a reiteration on the “power of the X” for another amazing sculptor you can see on Stan Winston School, Don Lanning’s Sculpture Techniques—Textures & Forms video. Thanks again Frank and Tested crew! On to the next!!!

  5. this is such fun to watch…hope this continues i would love to see some other guests eventually, like grant or felicia day, or kato come in and teach costume building or cross teach skills.

  6. LOL i just got to the point when norm is looking at the wrinkles on his hand and he looks like the acid just kicked in

  9. Hi i just joined premium membership and got my confirmation mail but on all premium videos i just see a black screen where the video + player should be. Anybody know how to fix this ? All other Videos work and i already tried updating my flashplayer.

  10. I would really like to watch more of this stuff on other subjects as well.. Kinda like lynda.com I just love the format on the video and everything is so soothing and awesome!
