Norris Head from “The Thing” (1981)

John Carpenter’s film, The Thing, with practical effects by Rob Bottin has been a boon for model builders. This version, sculpted by Mick Wood and released by the kind folks at Monsters in Motion, is the chest bursting Norris head. All paints were acrylics with washes and chalks for highlights. Semi-gloss for the head body and crepe hair for the head.
