"You could try to sculpt the detail of the fabric directly into the clay as long as it matches the look you're going for. Maybe if it's a rougher fabric like wool or crochet then you could go the long and insane route of sculpting all that…"

Hair and clothing for an old man

Hello, I am making a production still for my latest film and would value some advice.The still has as its focus an old man whom I plan to make in super sculpy as he doesn't need to move. My questions are these. 1) How would you make hair and (2) clothes. A note on question 2, all that will be seen of the man is his upper half and he will be wearing an overcoat and a shirt.
