Glowing Fungi

Following up on last week’s post, here’s the finished (for now) version of the glowing fungus prop. Each of the stalks is a length of foam pool noodle slashed with a razor knife and then hit with a heat gun to form the twisting, organic skin. They were then bound into a group using zip …

Burnt Offerings

This is why you need to use a thermometer every time you bake Sculpey. Last night I finished this specimen off and put it in my dedicated polymer clay toaster oven for a final baking.  Unfortunately, I relied on my previous temperature readings and didn’t check if there was a hot spot inside the oven.  …

The Reality of Things in Jars

The talented Britta Miller is no stranger to these pages. Beyond producing some choice Mythos artifacts she also happens to work in an actual museum filled with shelves of preserved biological specimens.

Quick and Easy Fetal Specimen

What would a mad scientist’s lab be without some creepy preserved specimens? This project recreates the look of a diaphonized exhibit using a cheap toy dinosaur skeleton and some basic craft supplies. It’s not movie quality, but from a foot away the finished specimen looks awesome.  Not too shabby for something that costs around $2 …

It’s wall-to-wall ghouls, as we’ll hear ghoul music from THE PRETTY GHOULS, RUNNING FROM DAYLIGHT, THE LIVING CORPSES and more.

El Santo de Mayo 2017!

Back in 1992, Southern Culture On The Skids released a vinyl EP called Santo! Sings on the now long defunct Zontar Records, in both black and transparent yellow pressings.
