A couple of years back I was in a little Halloween store, where a guy had made most of his own props. He had a really cool looking mummified skeleton and he was kind enough to give me a quick description of what he'd used to make it. Although I don't have much time right now, I've been dying to give it a try. So... I just went out into the garage, grabbed one of the cheapy skeleton heads we have brought down out of the attic (hey - some people have skeletons in the closet, we keep ours in the attic....) and gave it a try. I'll have to wait to see how it looks when it's dry, but I'm happy with the first impression I'm getting from it. It certainly doesn't looks as cheapy-plastic-y (I know, "plastic-y" is not a word, but you know what I mean) as it did before.
