Something coming back from the dead was almost always bad news. Movies taught me that. For every one Jesus you get a million zombies.
David Wong, John Dies at the End

I thought it would be fun to make a hi-tech zombie head using "found" items from around the house.

Using a prop skull as a model, I did rubbings to make templates.

The templates were transferred to light cardboard and attached to a paper mache ball which was then covered with more PM.

It's like a mirror image!

Eventually, I enlarged the eye sockets and enhanced the features with paperclay. The head was painted with white masonry paint to seal it from moisture.

The cybernetic eye-socket was a plastic cup painted black and cut to shape.

Don't worry ma'am, he'll only need the corrective lens for a few years.
A used plastic deodorant cap served as an ear.

The ear, however ...
He looks a bit too "Deadshot" at this point, but there's more to be done.
