Japanese Artist Mutates Underwater Creatures Into Beautiful, Glowing Specimens

UPDATE: Looks like the previously featured mysterious translucent skeletal specimens aren't the work of unknown scientists, but rather a project by Japanese scientist-turned-artist Iori Tomita.  Tomita majored in fisheries as an undergraduate student, and has since used his knowledge to create a beautiful collection of mutated sea creatures, called "New World Transparent Specimens". Tomita creates his specimens by dissolving their flesh, and then injecting dye into the skeletal system.

could you give me a list of the speciments you used, what you use to disolve their flesh, how you inject dye into their skeletal system, how you get it to glow and how you get it everywhere in the skeletal system, thanks.

also, how do you make the skeleton transparent

They look like ghosts.
