This is the first time I am posting, uploading pics, starting a thread and documenting a build. What could go wrong right?
For some reason I have always been fascinated by skulls and mummy heads in the movies. They seem to get more and more realistic. I became seriously intrigued whenever Spielberg used heads and mummy corpses in his movies. The store bought ones are cool but they lack the detail I took note of in the movies. So, I thought I would try to do it on my own. Since I wanted this head to go on display in my haunt I wanted it to do more than just sit there like a rock. I'm going to make it talk to the TOTs. It will have a demonic voice projecting from it.
Credit goes to skullkit.com for giving me the sense I really could do this. Thanks for getting me into trouble.
If you want to do this you'll need some stuff and instead of letting you just take a guess as to what that might be here is a list. I didn't put everything in there because some of the items are just things I have around for any project, and I figure you have them too (dremel, soldering iron, etc).
Lindberg Skull $20.
LEDs, All Electronics Blue Oval $1.
Speaker, 5.25 inch, All Electronics $8.
Latex $14 Motion Picture F/X Company, Special Effects Makeup Supplies - MonsterClub.com
Acrylic artists paints $7-$14 a tube, Daler Rowney System 3.
Teeth, $6 set, Uhler.
Cotton balls, $2.
Whatever else you may need to do the job.
Get your head and stain it.
