Dodge / Burn.
Use the Burn tool (B) to burn the area shown in the image below. I used a brush size of 1300 pixels with the range set to midtones and exposure at 100%.
Step 28

Go to the Brain layer then press Ctrl/Cmd+J to duplicate the layer. Change the blending mode of the new layer to Multiply.

Select the Brain Copy and Brain layer (Hold Ctrl or Cmd to select multiple layers) then merge the layers (Ctrl/Cmd+E).
Step 36

Now were going to create two iron bars for the handle. Create a new layer then move it to the top. Name this layer Iron.
Step 37

Select the Rectangular Marquee tool then create a selection like shown in the image below.
Step 38

Select the Paint Bucket Tool (G) then fill it with black. Press Ctrl+D to deselect.
Step 39

Now were going to apply some effects to the iron with layer styles. Go to Layer > Layer Style > Bevel & Emboss. Apply the settings as shown below.
Step 40

Create a new layer under the Iron layer. Select the original Iron layer then press Ctrl/Cmd+E to merge this Iron layer to the empty layer. We have only one layer again.
Step 41

Select the Eraser tool then with a hard brush (7-0100% feather), delete the bottom and top areas of the iron so that it looks like it fits in the models hands.
Step 42

Dodge and burn the layer a bit. Burn the part next to the hand and hole of the brain and dodge the middle of the iron to lighten it a bit.
Step 43

Press Ctrl/Cmd+J to duplicate the Iron layer. Now we have two bars. Use the Free Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd+T) to scale and position the iron rod like shown below. Delete the unnecessary parts of the iron just like what you did earlier with the other iron bar.
Step 44

Create a new layer above the Brain layer and name it Shadow.
