Eeeeee!!! I'm so excited about this and LOVE how it turned out!
Making my house come alive for Halloween....literally :)
Spooky eyes and teeth for the house
wood 4'x8' sheet
Free handed what I wanted
Cut with a saw
I started with a thick messy layer of acrylic paint
Started shaping the teeth but left some room at the top that will be covered by the house when it's hanging
added a little yellow around the gums
Then some brown spray paint. Now for the blending. I did the brown spray paint one tooth at a time. I took a sponge and since my acrylic paint was still wet it blends very nice.
Added some red spay paint to the gums and blended some more. Then I added the "blood" on the teeth with more red spray paint.
Finished it off with a little black spray paint around the edges
I didn't want to add any hooks or nails to my house. There is a lip inside the columns so I left a little edge on the wood just to set it in place. So easy and NO DAMAGE!!! Whoooohooo!!
I didn't have a way to hang the eyes without a nail or something permanent so I used card board cake bases or whatever they are called. :) My son actually brought them home from a discovery class at the end of last year. She was getting rid of all random supplies. Now they came in use.
My tracing objects....don't laugh :) Plastic plate to make the mean looking eye, spray paint can for the pupil, and my water jug for the eye color.
Used permanent markers to color the eyes
Two different greens
adding a little blood shot look
Spray painted the edges red and black
Not show but since they are going outside and it's just card board I took clear packing tape and sealed the front and back.
I decided to hang with these Command strips since they say they hang with no damage to the paint. So far so good. They've been up for about a week and holding strong. We've had a storm and lots of wind too.
Thank you for stopping by!
