I'm working on a handful of props for the remaining scenes in "Unearthed", still have to paint and weather the plaster friezes from the previous post, also need to reshoot a ghost scene for the cemetery shots, but spent today on a couple of new bits for Herbie's apartment. As a treasure hunter, particularly the supernatural variety, Herbie has amassed an impressive collection of items which will be scattered about his home. A lot of the props for that set have been based on items from some of my favorite horror movies and gothic lit (the demon mask from "Onibaba", the Zuni doll from "Trilogy of Terror", the Mezzotint from MR James' short story, to name a few) and some of the props are from my own imagination.
This cute lil guy is made of sculpey. He is based on the fetus-in-a-jar from the film "Devil's Backbone". He will be inserted into a tiny jar filled with an amber liquid.
I've dubbed this prop the Fairy Victrola, it has a bell made from a leaf, and will be painted with vines. When Herbie first enters his home he will drop on a record, so I will have this rigged with an animatable needle and turntable. More to come!
