Mike, great idea! Love where this is headed (so to speak). Can you poke a small hole through to allow any air to escape (to prevent it from going boom?

MDM - Please remember, when working in a potentially dangerous mud-based environment, always consult with your local Society of MUDMEN Professionals, Asaro Clay Chapter, PNG.

Jones - That video was very interesting and nicely done. Tasteful (no pun intended ), culturally sensitive, not sensationalized, informative ~ well worth the 45 minutes. I have also been looking for pictures/footage of the facial features of PNG tribesmen, this will do nicely. I used to belong to the Society of MUDMEN Professionals but they want payment in live chickens and shipping was killing me!

Right on Mad Dog! I like the way you think.


Pop, that's because I stole most of my inspiration from YOU
(the least I can do is give you some free advertising)

TikiAno - The 2 slabs are pretty big, about the size of the palm of your hand. A single hole wouldn't stand much chance of randomly hitting a hidden air bubble and lots of holes would weaken it. I put lots of very liquid slip between the slabs and pressed out the bubbles, working from the center. It should be OK.

More work in progress:
Cowrie shells for eyes


The keyway makes sure the lid goes on the right way and doesn't move around, but it doesn't look very organic


So I am covering it with a fruit bat skull

Thank you Jon.
Jones, thin enuf to let the light thru! Very nice. It would make a cool night light!

My trophy skull won't stand on it's own so it is going to need a base. This slice of eucalyptus may be too big though. Working on ideas to add a splash of color - maybe a big blue polymer clay rhinoceros beetle on the base?

He's gonna need some legs.


There are rhinoceros beetles in Papua New Guinea, unfortunately they are an imported species and are killing the coconut palms

I wasn't happy with my Rhinoceros Beetle ~ the shape was alright but I didn't like the color and the texturing I did on the face was all wrong. So back to Michaels for TWO packs of polymer clay this time, black for the head and pearl green for the body. My gut told me to "go big or go home". And since I have been accused of thinking with my various "organs" rather than my brain, I decided to go for it. The resulting beast is 3 1/2 inches long.

I keep a can of Raid nearby in case he gets unruly or tries to escape!
