Canopic Jars

Hello Readers,

Here is a little update on our Tombquest inspired mummy, Mr. Frank.

When we first buried Frank in the natron solution he weighed 53.5 grams.  After two weeks in the salt and baking soda mixture he now weighs 34.5 grams.

As you can see he has also curled a bit, but that could be from how he was laying in the natron.

Today we decided to go a bit backwards and remove some internal organs from Frank, mainly to see if puncturing Frank’s skin would change his mummification process.  So we cut a few chunks out Frank and put them in Canopic Jars.

Check back next week as we check Frank and see if his wounds change his mummification any.

Read on,

Mr. H
