Artwork of the Week: Shrunken Heads!

Vincent Price's Shrunken Head Apple Sculpture Kit by Milton Bradley 1975

Yes, you know that if it's endorsed by the pretty mug of Vincent Price, this shrunken head kit MUST have been amazing! Milton Bradley put these out in the 70s, five years before my time, but I discovered this vintage set while searching for Halloween-y things to post this week. There are a few available on Ebay and one from LovesAllThingsYou on Etsy, so pick one up if you're looking for the perfect finishing touch to your mad-voodoo-science-lab party. You never know, you may just have an artiste's touch when it comes to sculpting disfigured shrunken heads. [Or you could just try the old-fashioned method.]

Included in the kit: 
1. The Shrinker

2. Face Templates
3. Plastic Sculpting Tool
4. Synthetic Hair (white and orange)
5. Little White Beads (teeth)
6. Large Black Beeds (eyes)
7. Watercolor
8. Jar of Gloss Finish
9. 3 Pieces of Aluminum Wire 
10. Cord
11. Instructions
12. Apple Hanger
13. Wing-nuts and various pieces for hanging the apple and attaching it to a lamp

Happy Halloween!!
