Engraved rat skull

Ok so you might be thinking that you’re going to see that I engraved a picture of a rat skull. Nope. This is a rat skull that has been engraved. You’ve been warned, scroll if this doesn’t freak you out. :slight_smile:

Well, in general the person who discovers it gets to name the species, and as far as I know, I’m the first skull engraver? I looked and saw no posts. Anyhooooo :slight_smile:

Wow. That’s super cool…bet it stank though. :wink: Maybe used as a warning to any small critters that are thinking of taking up residence…lol

Recent archeological discoveries on Oak Island have shown that the Vikings laser engraved skulls, including rat skulls.

Thanks for the idea! Now I can finally do something with all those rat skulls I’ve been saving.

Very cool! I have a few rabbit skulls in the garden I’ve been wanting to try this with. I’m just waiting for nature to clean them up a bit. I’ll be hitting you up for settings :slight_smile:

Just remember that you don’t have a ton of vertical clearance. I have a turkey skull ready to go and it’s just about as big a thing as can be engraved. You gotta stay under roughly 1.8” total height.

Yeah, I think a few might be too tall, but I measured one and it just fits. :slight_smile: I figure I’ll just do the mandibles of the bigger ones.

A really clean skull will probably have the mandibles separate from the rest of the skull, which (when removed) will make the whole thing a bit shorter.

It came out so cool! Now take it one more step: make some antlers or longhorn style horns for it out of polymer clay or whatever, then mount it on a trophy plaque.

Pronghorn style? Ratalope.

Yeah… “Why not?”… But maybe a little more “Von Dutch Style” next time!
