DIY: Here’s How To Clean Animal Bones So You Can Use Them As Decor

A while back I was shooting some engagement pictures for my friend at an abandoned ranch area in San Diego and we noticed a lot of animal bones around. I mentioned to her that I thought they would …

A friend has promised me (animal) bones, and I’m very excited. A number of them will have to go into storage for a while as I don’t have the display space one would wish for - - but ever since visiting the Capuchin Crypt in Rome I’ve been enchanted by the aesthetic potential of the 3d forms (and 2d cross sections) of vertebrae.

And how do we call attention to aestheticize an object, if not with gold leaf?


    this is very broad umbrella goth community until we get enough content / subscribers to justify split, so

    • tradgoth fashion, proper original 80s goth music
    • goth adjacent music genres
    • goth adjacent fashion/culture
    • general macabre stuff

    on top of the normal instance rules:

    please make sure you add a NSFW marking for anything gorey (though Gorey is still fine :) )

    please make sure links to material dealing with e.g. self-harm have appropriate content warnings

    please be nice to each other. if you think something’s stupid/bad, just downvote it and move on. if you think something doesn’t belong in this community, messaage it to the community mods who will do any gatekeeping necessary. this means you should not be showing up in the comments to tell someone their post is not real goth.
