Raffertiki and Ben - That is really some great work! Raffertiki, your piece has a "chilling" quality to it, and Ben, that "boneboy" is genuine ugly-cool! That different wood for the bone is an excellent touch. Foamy's piece on the top of the previous page is cool too - It's a Joe Perry (Aerosmith) shrunkenhead!

I just thought it was time to bump this thread with a head of my own. I used Pariarts Paul's technique of Sculpy over tin foil. I don't know where I'm gonna keep it, my wife says it gives her the creeps, I call that a success! --KK

aloha!
Here are my first shrunken heads, I have carved.
The first one has been carved from massive ash wood. He’s being hung up
on hair made from coco thread. The wood has not been covered.
The size is about 17.71 inch x 6.3 inch.



This head has been crafted from balsa wood. The wood has then been variegated
and then covered with oak coloured beeswax.
The size is about 1.77 inch x 0.79 inch.



And the last shrunken head frame I copied for a TC member.
