Skull in a Jar


I cast a skull and coloured it up.  I needed it raised out of the lid so I used a cotton spool and some cardboard.

I glued a large spider on the top of the jar.

I added white shredded paper and some mini resin embellishments.

I used brushed iron alchemy wax on the embellishments.

And after I'd coloured them I decided that it needed a proper more stable base, so covered a coaster with black powertex and added in some small sand balls.

I used white powertex to dry brush over the coaster to show the sand balls and texture.

Dolls Head in a Jar


I started off playing with plastic spiders, a jar and black tulle.

I painted the dolls head and gave her some make-up!

And this was the end result.

Skellie in a Coffin


I picked up some plastic skellies and skulls.  I decided he needed a coffin.  So I made one out of cardboard.

I gave it a coat of black powertex and played around with some fabrics and resin pieces.

Then I decided I wanted to mount it on something and use a technique shown to us by Finn aka Anna, in one of her live shows.

After a coat of black powertex I dry brushed in white.

Then to see how he fitted in the box with the fabric in.

Once I was happy with everything I mounted the coffin on the background piece.

And a view from the bottom to the top.

And from the other side.

Close up of some of the embellishments.

And some more from the other side.

And a close up of the legs and feet.

And then a close up of the bottom right.

And finally a close up of the skull and skellie.

Bookends or Treasure Boxes


I painted the drawers I took out the top part of the cabinet.

I added patterned papers in the back and bottom.

Used texture paste on the outsides and top.

Then I decided to paint them both in purple metallic acrylic.

And I also did the tops.

I then filled them in with mini bits and pieces.

I added some tulle on the bottom and heated it to curl around the bases.

They can either be used for bookends of display ornaments.

These are for sale in my online shop.

Cabinet of Horrors


I picked this jewellery cabinet up at the car boot last Sunday.

I painted it with black powertex and then took the door off and painted the inside.

Then I added some grit paste and covered the insides with Halloween patterned paper.

I created a shelf on the left hand side.

Then I decided to give it a coat of black paint with silver in it.

It looks quite good with the texture.

Close ups of the patterned papers in situ.

Then I filled the shelves with lots of tiny and mini horrors.

And from the side.

Then it stopped raining, so I took some photos outside.

From the left side.
