Image of the Day


This is a New Orleans Tomb Sculpture in the making. The tomb itself is rock tile. The skeleton is a small plastic skeleton that's been dismembered, painted in metallics to give it a slight glow and then sunk in layer of graveyard dirt that has been obtained from several New Orleans cemeteries. The skeleton was buried partially in the dirt and then a heavy layer of Mod Podge was applied over the whole surface and left to dry. The slight opaquing you still see will dry clear soon and keep the skeleton embedded and the dirt in place.
