  • Another disgusting experiment from my childhood immortalized by the camera.

    Horns. I was trying to sculpt horns out of tissue and water. Plaster to the face.

    Everything at that time was an experiment. I used to make colored glues out of markers and glue and use the mixture as fingerpaint. On any afternoon on the weekends I could be found in the bathroom pouring different colored mixtures into capsules (like the capsules rings and charms arrived in when you dropped a quarter in the toy dispenser at the grocery store.) and swishing the contents with water or a finger.

    My experiments grew less frequent and disgusting once I was given a proper set of face paints.
