No home is complete without a shrunken head. David Gagné has been kind enough to share a detailed tutorial on creating a modern version of the traditional tsantsa. One that thankfully doesn't require going to war with a nearby tribe. Part One is here, and Part Two over here.
When I say "detailed" I mean it. He covers every step of the process, from the initial sculpt, through casting the latex skin, surface finishing, and the punching of the hair. It's easily the most comprehensive guide to making a shrunken head I've ever seen.
