I'm SO glad everything arrived in one piece... Maybe customs thought I was sending an animal brain, even though i marked crafted items on the customs slip...
But it looks like they poured out some of the liquid maybe? It it should more than cover the brain... hmmm

The brain is just made out of polymer clay, and I tinted the glaze with red food colouring in some places to look like blood. The liquid just just clear elmer's glue, again with some red food colouring, so if you want to top up the jar you can probably add more glue. I bought it at walmart. The food colouring in the glue was initially like floating whisps of blood, but it all blured out into the liquid by the time i sent that package... but it still looks like a brain in a jar  Roll Eyes

I hope you enjoy the books - you said you liked horror so i think they'll both have aspects that appeal to you, although they're more action/fantasy in some ways than horror.

Here is a photo of the brain when it was a little more "fresh"

 If you made the brain out of Sculpty it will absorb liquid so that might have happened. It's still really neat even with a little less liquid.  Wink
 The entire package is very cool! Does that bag say, "Mind the game?". The My Life As A White Trash Zombie book looks funny!

I sealed the brain with a sculpey glaze, so hopefully it didn't absorb the glue... but anyway, it should be easy enough to top up if you want a fuller jar effect Smiley

Here is the super awesome package I just recieved I love everything about it!  Grin

I have always love the princess bride movie and I can't wait to read the book. My brother read Eragon and he really like it so I'm looking forward to that as well. I think my favorite extra is the awesome wesley and buttercup cameo.

Yay!  I am so glad it got there safely and can now breathe a sigh of relief that you like it.  I had so much fun crafting for you, and even made a replica of the Westley and Buttercup Cameo for myself Smiley  It was my first time crafting fabric flowers, and now I am addicted to making them
