Halloween gift set

Good day,

My sister's birthday is Halloween and she is a big fan
 of decorating for the holiday
 as well so every year I create some decor for her. 


I found the tutorial for the glasses on pinterest and decided to give it a try.  
You can find the link here 


I started by spraying some Rust-oleum Frosted glass, 
blocking off about an 1/2 inch with tape
at the top to keep it clear.  I ten painting the rest with black gesso.


To add a bit of weight and texture I used some Paperclay with an IOD mold, 
when dry coved it with black gesso.   


I purchaed a halloween skeleton and used the hands, 
which i glued to the glasses with some strong glue ( E6000). 
 Then came the dry brushing with white paint.
For the finish touch I also used some Prime Metallique wax in old silver 



The skeleton head is a glass bottle, which I did the same technique as the glasses
except for the Frosted glass.  I applied several coats of black gesso creating texture
with the paint brush .


For the hat, it has layers of tissue paper for texture, 
I added some feathers, thread, ribbon
and a jewel spider

I am so loving Mix media and will have a lot more stuff coming up
