This is scary - which I hope you take as a compliment because it's so realistic!! The fingernails are an especially spooky detail Smiley.

Thanks guys! I'm glad you like it!

Corchen: I don't know if you're familiar with Jacob Petersson (at curiomira.blogspot.com), if you're into old, dusty, otherwordly stuff, you'll love it!

This rocks!  Would not have even imagined you used broken markers to make the frame!

I made mine using traditional corpsing techniques...

You can't argue with tradition! Cheesy

This is seriously brilliant, and I'm going to steal the idea for something I have to make at work. I especially like the use of old felt marker shells as plastic tubes and building up the knuckles with string.

The fingernails are very creepy. Another method I've used for this (also for teeth) is to carve them from hot glue sticks. They have just the same sort of translucency and shine. But buying stick-ons from the dollar store is much easier!

I just discovered Jacob Petersson myself this week. Love his stuff!

Thanks, anderlance! That's what happens when you're cheap and can't be bothered to fiddle with wire.

Wulf: Thank you! I gotta agree, hot glue could work wonders! Do you take the time to carve those directly from the stick (I hope not, I'm too lazy for that!) or do you work normally from a puddle of glue?

I know Christian Hanson used drawn-out beads of hot glue as a base for teeth in his DVD on making corpses, (His corpsing method wouldn't work great for a single hand, but the heads it makes look so gnarly!) and it looked amazing, but I don't recall seeing it used for nails, sounds interesting!

Oh, and have you guys seen Petersson's stop motion short? It's all dusty and creepy! a must see.
