Step 10: Put head in jar

Curling the laminated printout to fit through the jar neck the sheet was inserted, the jar was then topped off with water until full. The jar was then sealed. The head in a jar was now ready to be placed inside the fridge to prank hungry foragers.

I am interested in having a few of these made for Halloween. Is there anybody that is interested in helping me?

<p>What about having a jar in a jar so the print is protected from the water?</p>
<p>it would look like a jar with a head in it inside a larger jar with fluid</p>
<p>He said to laminate the print first.</p>
<p>Which doesn't render jtmcdole's question invalid.</p>
<p>But does render it irrelevant. It is of course possible, but would necessitate unrequired effort and the result would be sub par.</p>
<p>&quot;unrequired&quot; == &quot;optional&quot; effort if one doesn't have or care for laminating. You also have no standing to sugest it would generate sub-par results.</p>
<p>Keeping to being &quot;positive and constructive&quot;, look at in analytically: A jar has a much smaller mouth than a body. Wide-mouth jars will have a same-size or larger mouth than the base. To fit a jar in a jar, you must make the inner jar smaller than the outer jar...that's just physics. Thus, your &quot;head&quot; image will be smaller than a single jar alone. Further, you will be able to see both the inner jar and it's lid, breaking the illusion. Result: tiny head, in a jar, in a jar. Not a head-in-a-jar. Some of us have goofed around and have observed the real-world...which gives us some standing. Instead of whining about other commenters having no standing...just do it your way and post a picture. Not a proof, but a data point showing full-, partial-, or no success. Have fun with it.</p>
<p>Lol you guys are like having a buisness scientist argument thing</p>
<p>Just saw your question but I do know this - trapped air, whether in a bottle inside a bottle or jar will look almost like a mirror. Hence, it will look as though you set a mirrored jar inside the jar. </p>
<p>The thing that pulls this off, is the refraction of the water to air (well water to glass to air) if you put an air filled jar inside the jar, it would just look like a piece of paper in a jar in a jar :) laminators are dirt cheap if you don't have one, and the thing that makes the lamination work, is that there's no air between the plastic and paper.</p>

<p>That is awesome</p>
<p>oh Gruesome! </p>
<p>How freaky is this! that man looks like me! great job though!</p>
<p>Here is a couple pictures from pre-Halloween night of my head in a jar. I put it on the &quot;floating table&quot; next to where I was handing out candy.</p>
Floating table?
<p>I made a table top from scrape wood and held it up with a single black post. The post inner layer is a pipe that is buried into the ground to provide the structure and the outer layer is to directs fog up to the table top and falls out around the edges. It looks good in the dark. </p>
<p>Yikes, that looks good on the table.</p><p>Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the 3-month Pro Membership!</p>
<p>Thanks, Mike! This was an awesome project for me and my daughter. This is what my wife will see when she gets home today (see photos). Thanks again!</p>
<p>You should film your wife's reaction, and upload it to http://www.iprank.tv. A lot of people will like this.</p>
Unfortunately, it happened back on Halloween and I didn't have my video camera ready. Here's to next year! :)
