Swamp Thing

This green oobleck colored monster is made of painted polystyrene and low-density polyethylene.

Its numerous craters were formed by drops of acetone, which dissolved the polystyrene and left traces of foam behind.

It still doesn't have a title, but last night after I worked on it, I saw part of a B-movie before I fell asleep, so I decided to nickname it "Swamp Thing" for now. Ultimately, I plan to go over it several times with metallic green and gold glazes. And perhaps a little more nail polish remover. Watching Styrofoam dissolve is fun.
