Tyler crafts stunning crystallized carcasses out of animal bones and other remains.
The process starts with him preparing supersaturated solutions of the respective compounds.
when the container cools, Ions align according to their molecular geometry, forming crystal formations.
Temperature and humidity, play a major role in the making of these structures.
He usually finds his dead specimens while hiking, apart from bones museums and shops.
Tyler is also into exploring cavern systems, which led him towards an appreciation for crystalline and mineralogical structures.
His experience with crystal synthesis started from his interest in chemistry during school.
