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
