• Short Summary

    Ray Bossoms designs and manufactures earthy character faces.

  • Description

    Cheshire.

    Ray Bossoms designs lifelike character faces, which are crafted from clay by Fred Wright. There are shots of the mould being made, with a resin like melted chocolate being poured out, plaster is then poured into the finished moulds. The faces are then delicately painted by girls, and we see various heads, of an Indian, an Oriental, a man with a patch over one eye, and an Arab head with an eagle. A man is seen with a spray gun. C/U shot of the spray gun in action, and of the heads as they glisten with varnish.
