Væseldyr

I'm supposed to get a tattoo finished tomorrow, but i still have this friggin cold and Allan hasn't even doodled anything yet, so i'm unsure if it's gonna happen.
You'd think living and working together made planning stuff easier, right?
We'll see.

Today was not exactly taxidermy tuesday (it being wednesday might have had something to do with that) but it was just as good.
Eckel got me this awesome weasel skull (or at least we think it's weasel?) at a shop on Amager.
I'm thinking of making replicas of it for hats, and i already dropped by a special effects shop recommended by a client to see what the options are.
They said it'd be difficult, but i'm thinking it might be fun too.
And we have a friend who might be able to help me.

Weasel skull (i got the amazing fabric from Alice)
This little guy would look so good on a hat

  1. jeg tror det er mink. det er lidt svært vurderer størrelsen på billederne, men den ligner meget et kranie jeg engang har haft. Jeg fik det fra en børnehave, jeg har arbejdet i. Hver gang de var på koloni fik de en masse minkhoveder fra en minkfarmer. Hovederne kom i en gryde på bål, som stod og kogte i flere timer, hvor efter de modigste børn kunne skrabe kød og hjernemasse ud af kraniet!
    De kødfrie hoveder blev lagt i hmmm måske klor? og de arbejdsomme børn kunne få deres kranie med hjem.
    Det er MEGET MEGET ulækkert, men en mulighed hvis det glipper med at kopier kraniet..
    Hvor ligger der en special effects butik?

  2. Mink lyder sandsynligt!
    Det kunne være jeg skulle finde en minkfarmer så?
    Selvom lugten er fæl!

    Den lydder i Sankt Hans gade, nede i kælderen:

  3. he looks all sad ( i think he is a he)
    When i was a teenager i had this thing for human skulls (fake ones) and there was this guy who made clay skulls from molds that he made out from real human skulls i had a couple of them, you could put tealights in them, they looked really cool in the dark. Maybe you can make a mold and then make your own little mink skulls I found this website http://www.smooth-on.com/Getting-Started/c4/index.html just an idea, I will stop my rambeling now.

  4. hehe fedt du kiggede forbi. Jeg håber du snakkede med Thomas og der kom noget ud af det. Han er som regel godt til at komme på ideer. Men der da også noget af en opgave... :)

  5. danish ice, that's what i was hoping to do, thanks for the link, it looks like they have some good "how-to" videos!

    Martin, tak for tippet!
    Jeg snakkede med en pige dernede, men hun var vældig flink og det så ud til at de havde alt hvad jeg skulle bruge.
    Vi blev enige om at jeg skulle kigge ned med et kunstigt kranie og så kunne vi finde ud af hvordan det var lavet.
    Men ja, det bliver nok lidt af et projekt!

  6. That's really cool. Are you going to use him on a hat, do you think? When I was ten years old, we had to dissect owl pellets in science class. Owl pellets! In mine, I had all of the bones to put together a whole mouse. I think I glued it to a piece of paper and wrote a story about his life, ha.

  7. That's so cute, i bet you wish you still had that paper huh?
    I wanna do a mold from this so i can make more, the original stays with me.
    I did try putting it on one of my own hats and it looked fierce!
