I love Halloween!
Ghosts and goblins and candy and scary movies! What's not to love????
This months challenge at Creative Embellishments:
and the twist is to add wings or something with wings...
I have lots of creepy crawlies on the tray with wings!
Now the candles are actually pool noodles that I altered (A LOT) to make this! My son cut them into sizes for me then cut the center out to fit the fake tea lights.
I started by using thickened white glue (I used cornstarch)that I let drip down for the longer and lighter drips
I then used hot glue and made bigger drips. I did this a few times to get big drips. I painted it all with truckbed liner spay. I covered them twice.
I highlighted the drips with the metallic ECD silver craft drops (which I painted on with a brush) to add shine and definition
I used some ECD double sided tape to hold them together then used hot glue to make sure they stayed together!
The skull was LOTS of fun.
I covered it with primer then added crackle paste.
I then covered it in nickel spray paint.
Once the paint was dry I added black plaint splatters and inked around the edges and over the cracks.
to the bodies to add more visual interest.
I also painted some mini webs - one used as a patch over his eye - with the silver craft drops.
I painted some thorn flourishes black and highlighted with grey and glued them to the top of the candles
