I know, right? Don't these archaeologists ever watch movies about archaeologists? Never turn your back on the sarcophagus!

Nice work with the beam cast from the flashlight, there! Love the tumbled bricks blocking the passageway, too! Fun stuff! Puts me in the mood for a Universal monster film!

Meant to show more of the sarcophagus, because it's a beauty, but the angle got changed. Might do another pic. of the mummy just coming out.
I am very pleased with the way the recently acquired Bio-Constrictor figure did up as the mummy!
A tight wrap of surgical bandages and then a wash of potassium permanganate for instant "age-ing".

I was wondering if that was the Bio-Constrictor!

He turned out great as a mummy!

I have only seen mention of "potassium permanganate" once before in my life. It was in a 1930s era list of descriptive phrases for writers. One of the suggestions under "purple" was "as purple as potassium permanganate." It was such a hilariously odd phrase that it has stayed with me for decades!
confused

What the blazes is potassium permanganate?

I’m really liking the Egyptian tomb set up here. Using the acquired Bio-Constrictor figure as the mummy really really works for me. I’m really liking the simple adventure clothes you have used for the tomb raider.

Commonly known as "Condy's Crystals", it USED to be carried by all bushmen in their kit as a antidote to snakebite. I have no idea just how efficacious it was for that purpose, ...if indeed at all!
I use a fairly strong solution of it for ageing or weathering just about anything.
Wood, fabric, paper, cardboard, anything absorbent really.
It goes on a frighteningly bright and lurid purple but as it dries it turns a very convincing brown.
I think it works far better than the strong coffee which is usually advocated.
Give it a go! Keep it in a jar in a dark place or it will darken prematurely.

Thanks Alex and Daryl. Glad you like the re-purposed Bio-Constrictor.
I'll post better views of him here soon.

THE MUMMY RISES.....
Some photos of my recent re-purposing of Bio-Constrictor as The Mummy.

Actually the idea of any peripatetic Pharaoh is really a bit difficult in light of Egyptian burial practices.
Apart from them being DEAD to begin with, the two legs were invariably bandaged together as one, putting paid to any meandering mummies, unless of course they could employ pogo sticks?
That and the brain was completely removed via the nostrils, plus the eyeballs did not survive the natron drying process and were replaced, often with small white onions!
Nevertheless, in the spirit of vampires, zombies and other members of the "living dead", THE MUMMY continues to fascinate us.

Thanks Daryl! I must admit I am quite pleased with the way he turned out!

You should be more than quite pleased with the way he turned out LeStryge because I think he’s turned out mummy-tastic Wink. I’m really really loving all the pictures.

These are excellent Barry , a bit like no face I can not help but smile at him . Not so keen on the rather gruelling history though . Razz

Now that you mention it Mark, I too see the similarity.
Bio-Constrictor has the hands and face that are sort of mummy like to begin with, ...plus it saved me co-opting one of my MAMs into wrappings, but I don't think that would have turned out quite so well.
The Mummy will get a better collar when it arrives.
