Inspired by Delta Green's D-Stacks Artefacts: "Purchased by an expedition in the T'aasii N'aajer in North Africa from a local Berber tribe leader, this odd mummified hand belongs to a creature known to the tribe as a "Selaama" or Son of the Desert. It is a dried sinewy piece of a forearm and hand whose fingers end in long bone talons. One finger is missing all musculature and skin. Apparently the natural heat and dryness of the desert mummified the hand."



Corpsing done entirely in paper mch and acrylics with a good layer of clay dust. The box is a cheap dollar store purchase with wood dye and foam and fabric inserts and I also used rusting chemicals to age the hardware.

Thank you. I can assure you it's quite safe. My friends sometimes us it as a head scratcher Tongue. I'm trying to improve the "aging" of the things I make. Using clay mask dust really simplifies things.
