Faux Mummified Bat Friend

So I knew about this tutorial and I got ahold of one of these bat skeletons this year! Here’s the tutorial: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://m.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3D33MoLF2ZaYY&ved=2ahUKEwix2IG81OLrAhXNKs0KHYaGCCoQwqsBMAB6BAgHEAM&usg=AOvVaw0sPDIQdhOnH3A8zz1xhCKY

Instead of the latex I used the method he used in the mummified fairy tutorial with some press-and-seal which actually worked even better! I also mixed some brown paint in some modge podge and coated the whole thing with it. It makes it more stable.

Here’s the original dollar store skeleton:

Well, that definitely helps with the “why does my bat skeleton have ears???” problem.

WOW! Very cool! This gives me so many horrible ideas!

Right? I think this might help me with this year’s “offender” the Octopus Skeleton!

I was part of a conversation where we decided the spider & octopus skeletons must be what bone necromancers do to use up spare parts. Still doesn’t explain the ears, tho. :laughing:

HAHA! Brilliant! I mean, I understand why they put ears on the dogs and cats, because otherwise it’ll be hard for most people to know what kind of skeleton they’re looking at, but a bat? I think I am now totally going to get an octopus and mummify or zombify it.

I love the guy who did the tutorial. I’m a fan of his style and his content. I’ve jumped in and made a few of his projects. I love your take and great insight on the press and seal! :smiley:

Yeah, I bought a spider skeleton, laughing the whole time. It’s Halloween- all kinds of other unrealistic creatures get free reign, why not spider skeletons? :woman_shrugging:

I was just about to say something about the ridiculous octopus or spider skeletons,! Ha!

I’d never seen an octopus skeleton. The ones that came up in google were really clunky looking.

I once did a mermaid skelly, so I’m not gonna judge the reality aspect.
