Day 3 of 31 Days of Halloween by Smeared and Smudged!

Good morning ghouls and gals, it’s Day 3 of 31 days of Halloween presented by the one and only Smeared and Smudged!! If your following the blog roll you should have arrived here from the lovely Tori! I have a full blog roll list on my side bar!

Now for my Day 3 offering:

I made this coffin for Jane, at Smeared and Smudged we had a Halloween swap, and this is what I made and sent to her, I do hope she likes it. The ghost inside the coffin can be removed, he is a squishy, stretchy, and it clings to things, toy.

I used a digi from Delicious Doodles called “Black Widow” (Follow the link to get yours.)

I colored her with a mix of Copics and Prismacolor pencils.

Want to know how I achieved my texture???

Well first painted the coffin with black Gesso. Then traced out where I wanted my image to go, so I could paint on the “Artisit Modeling Paste”  by Liquitex. (Found at Micheal’s.) While the paste is still wet, I added the clay skull, and faces to the coffin. The bat is wood, it has a string already on it. So if Jane wants to hang the coffin she can or it can sit. I added the paste on all sides of the coffin. Once dried, I painted it all black with Gesso again. Then I used Rubz, which are metallic. Then sprayed the entire coffin with a sealer so the Rubz  will not rub off. I used Modge Podge to adhere and seal the image. Well there you have it!

Now it’s time for you to visit the awesome Kapree!

    Too bad it’s already at Jane’s – the monkeys could have brought it along. BTW, I thought those fruitflies were getting pretty large – didn’t know they were flying monkeys but they still need a bit of muscle to lift the batgirl. HaHaHa!!
