We're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat

From the Office of Naval Intelligence's restricted files comes this specimen recovered during the raid on Innsmouth. Species unknown.

Sculpey over an aluminum armature. The tooth was burnished with a steel rod to bring out the shine of the enamel.

Awesome! You have a nack for teeth and that's a necessary prop for any mythos game or LARP.

Please try some ghoul teeth on a leather necklace.


Zoog teeth....ZUG teeth...uh..I'm getting carried away obviously.

More teeth with a pictorial...

I'm probably good at teeth because they're easy. Both they and tentacles are basically rolled out cones, the easiest shape to create using Sculpey.

Beautiful work and detail in these last few postings. Is the tooth dyed monochrome S-III, or feathered painting after the burnish. I assume the enamel is not altered in color as much as the sheen. Lovely.

It's acrylic on Sculpey. Basecoated black, then drybushed with white and burnt umber. Over that I did a transparent wash of yellow and burnt umber again before burnishing the tooth.

To be honest it looked horrible until I burnished it. I didn't even think the technique would work, assuming the paint would flake off, but intstead it formed a smooth, glossy shell.
