Headhunters Flask by Zhon Headhunters Flask by Zhon
Flask of the Headhunter.
The once proud, ferocious and unforgiving alpha baboon has now fallen into the clutches of an even bigger and sinister predator. A Predator that now quenches its thirst by using it's prey's skull as as a vial to hold life-giving liquids.

Yeah.... Felt like making one of those evil tribal something-or-others.
Inspired to make it for my Huntress outfit for the Renaissance Faire. Perhaps it'll look good on my Minotaur too!

Replica Chacama Baboon skull that had been sealed to retain water. Glass neck and cork were off of a liquor bottle.
Skull holds a good 8-10 fl.oz.
I am currently working on and plan to finish a wolf and lion one.

Enjoy!

Wow, this is amazing! I bet it got a lot of comments during your Ren Faire trip. O-o I'm really curious though, how'd you seal the inside? Hot wax? I was thinking of attempting to make something like this as a gift but, beings as I realized that I didn't know what I was doing, i'd be happy to take this or another like it off your hands if you still have it for sale.

The inside was sealed with resin. It took two or three coats to get the skull to stop leaking. XD
I believe I still have this one... problem is.... it has long since been buried in cosplay costume totes!

Did you have to melt the resin yourself or did you get It from like Home Depot or Hobbyworks?

Ah, well if you manage to find and dig it out, i'm willing to buy XD

The resin I get is by a company called Smooth-On (and actually... they call it a urethane resin) But Smooth-On 320 is a natural bone colour: www.smooth-on.com/Urethane-Pla…

Neat, thank you! I'll be sure to get some when I acquire an appropriate skull!
