Build Your Own Ecorché

In this series, you will learn how to create your own ecorché sculpture from scratch with artistic anatomist, Rey Bustos. Rey makes the challenging but rewarding subject of learning artistic anatomy easy-to-understand and fun. In this sixth lesson of the series, Rey will show you how to bake the skeleton of your ecorché at home. You will then learn how to paint the skeleton, the last step before applying muscles.
