Please do not revive a one year old topic to ask questions when you can easily find the answers with a minimum effort in searching through the thread or via Google.

if you boil the head as well will it shrink??
I think this post (just a few posts up in this same page) by tin7 answers your question:

1) All LEGO parts are damaged during boiling; they shrink, and the print comes off, so use parts that you don't want.

Where can I get sculpey mold from?....
I'm not sure I get your meaning. If you're asking where you can find sculpey clay, you can probably find it in do-it-yourself or art stores.

Hey guys I know that this is a two year old topic (please don't ban me) but I just wanted to say that I HAVE created complete lego-compatible heads out of sculpey, and I found it works out really well.
I published a tutorial on it on the MCW back in June.

Also tin7 do you know how to smooth out the clay pieces?

I tried sand paper, but that makes them rough and the sanded bits of clay stick to my piece.

I've been working with greenstuff for many years and I love it. When I first used it, I found it very difficult. It's very sticky when both components are mixed, so you always have to use a wet sculpting tool. But the great things about it are: You don't have to bake it, it becomes a little flexible and very durable and it won't shrink. Great stuff! I've build my colonial marines figures with this.
