How To Make A Mummy (In 5 Easy Steps)

Yes! Yes! We have seen Braden Fraser, Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh in the latest installment of Mummy. So what on earth is Mummy? Is it like the one in the movie where Jet Li was cursed? No silly, of course not. Well, according to Wiki: A mummy is a corpse whose skin and flesh have been preserved by either intentional or incidental exposure to chemicals, extreme cold, very low humidity, or lack of air when bodies are submerged in bogs. So in other words, Mummy is a result of natural preservation through unusual conditions, and as cultural artifacts to preserve the dead.

Not a delightful sight huh!

So today, we will see how a mummy is made as cultural artifacts. Watch the video to find out how mummy was made. Warning: Don't try this at home! And don't worry it is not gory either. Enjoy! =)

P.S.: So did you guys learn something? Toying around with "play dough" is ok. Don't try the real thing ok.

Wow! Don't even try it. Perhaps you can go buy a rat and test it. Haha =) If anything goes wrong don't blame it on me.

i heard abt 30 yrs ago, a mummy was found in Sibu. he was a highly revered figure in his lifetime. ppl speculate it was due to his good deeds. anyway Rome n the vatican rumours say were notified. we didnt hear anything abt it after that

Tekkaus said...

Hmm...mumified because of good deeds. Perhaps yes. Yeah! =)
