About this Product

This is an anatomically correct skeleton of The Bare-Fronted Hoodwink, the legendary bird that is identified by almost being seen. The jaw is hinged and printed as one piece.

This model is part of the "Mythic Articulations" product line.

I suggest WSF, and then dyed in tea or something to give it bone color (and paint the beak and toes for more realism). Or just leave it white for a bleached bone look. Successfully printed in WSF and WSF Polished.

(If the legs are too close together out of the box, just spread them apart and heat them a bit with a hair dryer.)

Dimensions

IN: 1.925 w x 5.172 d x 4.04 h

@TheJimbonaut I honestly don't really remember- I think I put one or two teabags (that are meant for a pot) in a pan, and put the print in there once the tea was cool enough to put my finger in. I've held it under for maybe 10 minutes, let it dry, and then repeated until it looked dark enough. I think I repeated it maybe 3 or 4 times, but just try it out! You won't easily stain it too much at the first go. I'm not even sure if holding it in for longer makes a difference at all, or if just dunking it briefly, letting it dry, and repeating that would do the trick as well. (is this material porous at all?)

@Henrieke - can I ask how you dyed your Hoodwink skeleton? How long did you keep the little guy in the tea (regular tea, right?) Cold tea? Thanks!

I just received this wonderful skeleton along with the Fairy - they've immediately become two of the most remarkable items in my somewhat eclectic collection. Stunning detail, beautiful workmanship. I'm bowled over by the level of intricacy in these skeletons - I bet Nature is theatrically punching the air wishing that She'd got there first.

I can confirm that dyeing in tea works!

Received this creature today and am amazed how well this delicate looking sculpture stands up and balances. Legs were fine out of the packing, no need to heat. Thanks!
