There's a unique creepiness to a specimen jar.
How about making a laboratory table full of them containing every organ in a human body for almost no money? Never blow your budget on expensive foam body parts, rubber bats and plastic mice to stuff the jars with again!
Here's how to do it and all you'll need:
1) Find your sense of humor.
2) Acquire old jars and fill with water ( I used a glass container from a spent aroma candle.)
3) Add a drop or two of yellow food coloring (or a color you like).
4) Most important, glue on a homemade label like this one...
The details on the label are references to the classic Universal, Claude Rains' INVISIBLE MAN . The date was it's release. The name is the character's. "Monacane" was the drug that turned him invisible and the Lion's Head Inn was where most of the story takes place (in a village called Islip in West Sussex). The item no. is made up and means nothing. I am geek and love the movie but I did have to research a few of these details. Thought it would be a fun homage to a little remembered character when the other big 3 Universal monsters rule Halloween.
I made my label in Photoshop. Feel free to borrow it if you like as a early Halloween treat. Here's a blank one to customize...
If anyone actually uses my label, send me a picture, I'd love to see it!
