Prototyping Head Bases

I am really struggling with the shaping and layout of the head. In an ideal world it would be a bust like a roman emperor. but i just simply wont be able to get the bronze faceplates to stick on. So i need to rely on gravity. I printed a few little prototypes to establish a good idea of shape and aesthetic.Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 18.00.59

I also polled a few of my friends on what they preferred.11101481_10206345553059281_1078180770_n

In the end i chose this shape and i also printed the faceplate that goes on top. this was a great proof of concept, now i know it works!

though there is that issue of the shape not being a perfect circle.
