Had great fun making these specimen jars for Halloween, I coloured the water with distress re inkers and painted cheap toys or modelled items from clay to go inside.
The labels were distressed with paint, sandpaper and then ink and finally the lids were sealed with beeswax.
The Giant Death Beetle, one of only two specimens found.
(Painted Pound shop toy).... Thanks Sue Roddis :)
Next is this unknown Specimen, Venom releases through the spine tips... 1mg of venom is sufficient to kill an adult Chimpanzee.....

This one is scary! A Serpent, severed from the head of a Gorgon type creature.

And finally a Juvenile Yeti Brain, shot just south of Dongou.
