As my cold/allergies run it's course, I am currently
in the coughing stage. The coughing really hard stage.
Like so hard you gag and nearly suffocate. Yeah, that's it.
So to make light of my current state, I have made a
coffin themed project. Funny, right?
I originally sculpted this for the WOOD themed challenge
at Haunted Design House. I used a coffin shaped cookie cutter
to cut the shape out of white polymer clay. It's a perfect size
for an ornament, so you may be seeing more of these in my Etsy
shop for Creepmas.
After it was textured and detailed using a needle tool,
it was cooked at the manufacturer's suggested temp of 270 degrees,
and then I painted it with a couple shades of brown acrylic paints.
To really bring out the details I added a black wash.
Lastly, a Tim Holtz skull and crossbones was added along with
a jute with wooden bead hanger.
Still following the coffin theme, I stamped two coffins
from Inkadinkado's Mindscape set onto shrink plastic.
Cut them out, and used the heat gun to shrink them down even
though I still have my trusty Shrinky Dink oven.
This way is much faster.
How fun are these? Such a cool image.
I'll share a few more images from this set with you tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you get a chance to check out all of the bloggers in these hops.
