Inspired by Gil Bruvel's metal sculptures, 3D artist Leon Nicholls replicated the wrought iron effect in Blender and designed a face that is made up of different colored layers. Each of the 61 cylindrical wired objects were individually placed to form the shape of a womans face, neck and shoulders.
The model was designed to be printed in color sandstone which allows him to add various color schemes.
Bruvel's another try was to make half of the face consist of vertical cylinders, see the image below. "I took the original face mesh and used the Blender knife tool to cut vertical edge paths out of the shape. Each path was converted to a curve and solidified to a cylinder. The curve was then converted to a mesh and smoothed with a subsurf modifier."
