Shrinking heads and carving apples

Perhaps you would like to try carving apples before you try head shrinking.

How to Carve Shrunken Head Apples

Do you need a Granny face for a doll? Perhaps you'd like to do something ghoulish for Halloween? Or are you looking for a new carving medium? If you've got a stash of apples in your pantry, you can use them for all of the above. Folk dolls made from carved apples have been around at least since the settlers of early ruralAmerica made dolls from whatever was plentiful at the time. Carved appleheads can last for years if dried properly and painted or sprayed with sealant. Here's an interesting way to preserve your apples...

  1. 1
    Thoroughly wash the applewith water.
  2. 2
    Peel the apple.
  3. 3
  4. 4
    Soak the apple in a mixture of lemon juice and salt (1 cup of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of salt) for about 15-30 minutes. This will keep the apple from turning dark.
  5. 5
    Carve the face as desired, exaggerating the features.

    Draw the face first with water based markers. Do not worry too much about it because as the apple dries, your "mistakes" will shrink. Plus,apples are delicious, and so "failed" carvings can be eaten on the spot.
  6. 6
    Dip your "finished" face in the lemon juice mixture again.
  7. 7
    Place the applein a food dehydrator or in a warm, dry, well ventilated place. You can insert a wire into the apple to hang it, pierce the center with a long skewer and put it in a vase, or place it on a rack. Make sure air reaches the entire surface of the apple so that it dries evenly. See Warnings.
  8. 8
    Turn the apple over every 12 hours or so until dry. It'll feel "spongy" when it's done.
    • Note: Core holes will expand when drying.
    • Even the most rudimentary of carvings yield an interesting "face".

Does your parent have a million dollar policy

Does your parents have a million dollar policy in you that says do everything I say and die trying?
So that would be worth it all for ever having to give birth to you?

Margaret Sanger hall of fame? Hog wash!

Live to die and die to live.

Mother must be communist!

Chances are mother is not the problem , your jealous girlfriend who is a complete failure otherwise without you is.(beauty school drop out) (wanna be run way over the hill obesed model)

Shyster is derived from the German term scheisser, meaning literally “one who defecates,” from the verb scheissen, “to defecate,” with the English suffix -ster, “one who does,” substituted for the German suffix -er, meaning the same thing. 

Generally used to describe someone who is untrustworthy, money grabbing and full of crap, particularly in the field of legal work for some reason.
