Hi there! As you all know I have been getting my Octopode on with craft pumpkins this past week and today I would like to share the last pumpkin to complete the trio. Apparently Jack is like me….fashionably late :).
Mr Jack Skellington here is my inaugural design team project for TOFF (The Octopode Factory Friday) and our challenge this week is Halloween. So of course I had to use the head Honcho of Halloweentown as my inspiration.
The craft pumpkin was painted with Krylon Glo (it really does glow!) and Krylon Glitter Blast. Glitter Blast is amazing!! Gone are the days of gloppy glue and glitter messes. Not to mention a floor that beckons John Travolta to reenact “Saturday Night Fever”. *Cue Bee-Gees Music* This stuff is a little on the pricey side but definitely worth the extra ching. This is where the term “starving artist” came from…if paint and supplies weren’t so EXPENSIVE we’d all be living like kings! But who needs shoes and shopping sprees when you can have spray paint? Michael’s is my Bloomingdale’s!
Jack and the Bat images…from The Octopode Factory were colored with Copic Markers. The eyes and detailing on the wings were hand painted with Glow in the Dark Acrylic paint. Some of the images were mounted on Grunge Paper to add depth and all the images were Mod Podged to adhere and seal. I added some of the Glow Acrylic to the white buttons and wasn’t sure if it was working until I walked into my studio last night and my craft table was lit up like a crime scene covered in Luminol (I watch a lot of CSI can you tell?)
More buttons were added to the top and a fun flying bat mounted on wire with a little beading detail.
And there you have it! And then there were three…and all that jazz! If you haven’t met the rest of the crew click here to see Edward Scissorhands and here for Sally. I’m going to enter this one in the Haunted Design house “Pumpkinhead Challenge” as well…I hope they aren’t sick of me yet…I have truly been a STALKER over there It IS Ghoulish Good fun so definitely check it out! While you’re getting your Halloween on don’t forget to stop by TOFF we have are having a Halloween party there as well
