Worm Thing

The gifted Phil Bolton brings us this impressive toothed worm. The coloration is just perfect, particularly the fleshy pink mouthparts.

Thanks Prop.

The little beast is currently residing in a jar of water,white vinegar,and a little brown ink.

I tried a new method of protecting the latex this time. Two coats of clear satin polyurethane. Its been submerged for nearly a month, with no sign of puffiness or fading. The downside of this is that the poly tends to remain tacky. After taking the picture, I had to spend a couple minutes slowly peeling my fingers lose for fear I might full up the paint. Otherwise though I'm pretty happy with it.

Hoping to sell it at this years Steamcon art show. But I'll be sure to take plenty of photos for my DeviantArt page first.
