    Here is a corpse I have been working on, it's pretty much done except for the final protective finish. I used a child sized Bucky because it is supposed to be the mangled corpse of a child. I used latex carpet adhesive and fabric on this one to act as the pieces of "flesh". I gave the adhesive a day or two to dry before I started painting it. The paint takes away the tack of the adhesive. To paint it, I used mainly acrylics and latex house paints. Although, over my "flesh" base coat I used some wood stain to give it a nice grimy look. The paints seem to hold pretty well, some of the "blood" started to crack in some areas though, so I switched to a different mix. Before I was just using acrylics mixed to a blood color, but then I changed my medium to Liquitex gloss varnish, which I then pigmented to look like blood. It worked much better because the varnish is flexible. I will be doing a final protective coat over the entire corpse though, to ensure it is sealed properly. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should use to seal the whole corpse? I was just going to airbrush some of the Liquitex varnish over it, but is there anything better? I need something some what flexible, and it would be nice if it had a gloss sheen.

    Please let me know what ya think of the Corpse! I made a video because the pics weren't turning out very good.

    Thanks guys! I actually have the forum members to thank for this, I used a mixture of the techniques that people have been kind enough to post on here. So if you want to know how to make something like this, just search it on the forum, that's what I did!

    Thanks. Does anybody know of a glossy, flexible sealer that will work well to protect the whole corpse? I was planning on just airbrushing Liquitex gloss varnish on, but if there is something better I would love to hear.

    Will shellac stay flexible on the Bucky? I do have some, but it is Amber, I would need to get some that is Clear. If shellac works, wouldn't something like Polyurethane Finish work as well, or do they have different properties?
