Hey there!

I made a bunch of shrunken heads. Even though I've already shown off my first one before, I thought I'd share pictures of those new ones with you guys.

Each head is made of latex, butcher's twine, and kanekalon.








The second-to-last is a custom order to guy who used to teach me puppetering, set and prop building, and the last one is a little something for my college's christmas tree.

If you want to make your own just take a look HERE and HERE.

I hope you like them!

Those are absolutely amazing!  Did you use the same mold for all of them?

I've always been curious about casting.  It certainly doesn't limit your creativity though!  What do you do with the original sculpture?

Thanks guys!

Aislynn: It is indeed the same mold. I figure I can make about 15-20 castings before the mold becomes unusable, and with the difference in stitching, hair & decoration, I can give each one a distinct personnality.

As for the original sculpture, it tends to get damaged during the demolding process; in any case, since I use non-hardening, oil based clay, I just squash it up an reuse the clay later on. Because of that, one could consider those small heads a limited edition item!
