Well it looks like Wicked Wednesday has now
turned into Thrashed out Thursday.
I am whoooped!!! Too much fun playing with clay this
week, and I am pretty happy with most of the results.
Here is my offering for Macabre Monday's
"Alas, poor Yorick" challenge of using skulls.
This is really only one skull, but I had to get the idea out of my head
and into a three dimensional project.
So, I took one of those cheapy paper mache masks
from Mike's and painted it white and then painted
glow in the dark paint over that. Then for the moment of
no return, I had to cut the hole in the skull.
Since it's paper it cut like buttah, with a little sawing motion.
I added some pearled paints in silver and blue
to add some shadow to the face. I then painted the cracks
for a little more interest. I'm thinking I may go back
and add some detail to the teeth so they show up a bit.
I made three evil fingers and one blinded eyeball out
of polymer clay that glows in the dark.
After adding the paint for the shading and detail to the fingers,
it covered too much of the gid clay, but the finger nails and that eyeball
are quite luminescent.
Another of my loves in life is glow in the dark
Well, I hope you like my version of "Poor Yorick".
There are a few more days to enter this challenge
which has literally no competition this week.
I'm thinking it's all you Allison!
