Hochanda Ghoul

Having watched Tracey Evans on Hochanda I made a ghoul using a Wilkos meat basher, a clay skull from a mold, tinfoil and masking tape to get to the above stage.

This was him having been given the black Powertex treatment using lots of different fabrics including t-shirt material, lace, ric-rac and power cotton. 

Here he is outside after being in the airing cupboard all night. Now at this point I was going to wait before I coloured him.

I'm visiting a shop in a couple of weeks that carries the whole Powertex range, so was going to get some more of the pigments, but............

I couldn't wait that long so out came the Ranger Perfect Pearls, the Primary Elements and the DecoArt satin varnish. 

I really can't believe how dull the colours look even though the sun is out, but IRL they are really vibrant, I love him.

Front view, I used about three different colours of blue to give him a bit of colour.

I did the hat in heirloom gold perfect pearls and also gave his face a light brushing with it too.
