Demon Child

Artist J. Abegglen created this wonderfully grotesque preserved demon child. I can't quite put my finger on why, but this is one of the few gaffe-style works I find genuinely creepy. The subtle translucence of the body and the brutally convincing anatomical detail give it a very realistic appearance.

If you're interested in producing something similar, Mr. Abegglen has kindly posted a complete tutorial featuring step-by-step directions and photographs. Grab a block of Super Sculpey today and you'll have quite the weekend project.

That is awesome, I'd make the liquid slightly murky but brilliant.
