Head in a Jar

Posted by Xavier Ashe on October 18, 2005

The Head In A Jar is my all-time favorite prop and is 100% original!
I came up with the idea by accident when I was looking for some rubber
spiders to use in the jar. Wouldn't it be cool to put a head in one?
But how would you get a rubber head in through the tiny little hole in
the top? Then it hit me! Who said it had to be a rubber head anyway? It
is supposed to be an illusion after all! Who says it has to really be
three dimensional, as long as it LOOKS three dimensional, right?

This
illusion is extremely disturbing, but only took about a half an hour to
create. I took it to work the day after I made it and there were
several people who wouldn't even look at it. It will truly be the most
eye-catching piece in my halloween decor this year. I like it so much
that I'm considering leaving it in my office as a year 'round curio
piece.

Below are some snapshots of how it looks on my
bookshelf. below these photos are detailed instructions on how to make
your own head in a jar
