I received this as a fixer-upper prop from the person who no longer wanted to mess with it anymore after rodents destroyed the face. The body and clothes for Frankenstein are all in great condition. The head was made out of some kind of fencing and paper mache. Rodents ate all of the paper mache off, and now we're left with just the fencing part of the head as shown.

It appears that ears, eyebrows, a nose and a mouth were raised on the head to make it look more realistic. I have no idea how to do this or what can be used. Any suggestions would be amazing.

I am also going to use a wood glue mix for the paper mache so rodents will hopefully not eat it.

I would also like to know what the green paint is called. I'm not sure if it glows, but it's a paint that a lot of haunters use.

I plan to waterproof the head after it's all painted so it can stay outside all through October.

Thank you!

Wow!! Those were some hungry rats!!

Monster mud would work & so would mache, either strips or clay mache.

If you go with mache try Stolloween's recipe for a larger batch of cellulose clay.
