Body Beautiful Part 2

Hi crafty friends (:o)

Are you ready for Halloween?

I had an order to transform an old - fashion candleholder. I already changed the face of the little boy as i noticed, that i didn't took a before picture.

Below you see the transformation of the back with laser - cut wings and Aves Apoxie Clay

I mostly buy plastic skull heads on Ebay. I've cut the back of the head open with a dremel and used the clay to adhere the skull to the little boy's face

Next part was painting DecoArt Media Gesso, Media Fluid Acrylics and Media Crackle Glaze

Well, some kinda *body beautiful*, don't you think?
Maybe you like to join the challenge at The Mirror Crack'd, too? The theme for this month challenge is everything featuring the human form. No cards or digital pieces.
If it's going to be quiet on my blog the next days it's because i've booked the new online class with
Michael DeMeng starting friday 17th.

I'm learning how to transform a discarded incandescents into bizarre little goodies for the seasonal tree.
I'm pretty curious (:o)

Thank you peeps for reading my obsessions and leaving your appreciated comments

Body Beautiful

Hi crafters (:o)

The Mixed Media Challenge Blog *The Mirror Crack'd* is calling for a new challenge and want to see your interpretation of *The Body Beautiful* Something featuring the human form, a hand, an eye or maybe a mannequin.

My solution is a split face

This project started with an empty box 4,5" x 5,5" x 2,5" and a LaBlanche face stamp

I glued down the flaps of the box and secured all edges with masking tape

I adhered the faces over the edge with DecoArt Media Matte Medium

On top of the faces a layer of Triple Thick

Painted the box with Media Black Gesso

Used Media Black Modeling Paste and a stencil

The laser cut gears are sticked into the Modeling Paste

A zipper was sticked into the Modeling Paste, too

I've pushed some gears under the zipper and applied more Modeling Paste around the zipper to secure
Drytime for one night

Next day, i've glued down more wood and metal embellishments. I also used some metal foil

Painted the embellishments with Media Black Gesso

Started painting with Media Interference Gold

Interference Violet, Magenta and Blue was painted  side by side and on top of each other

I've glued down  epoxy sticker and gems

Finished with a layer of Triple Thick on all sides

I hope you feel inspired to join the challenge at *The Mirror Crack'd*

Thanks for your appreciated comments

12 tags of 2014

Happy tuesday, dear crafters (:o)

At the last minute i've managed to create a september 2014 *Tim* tag.

What did i used against *his* advise? Of course, gloss photo paper. Just because i don't own glossy cardstock. I've tried the alkohol and mask version but it didn't worked. Well..my solution for the background was: Using Versamark and a mask, heat embossed with clear embossing powder, coloured the background with alkohol ink caramel and took the embossing powder off with a paper towel and the electric iron. 
 Instead of using a butterfly die - i don't own anyway - i stamped the butterflies from the Stampers Anonymous Papillion Stamp Set onto alkohol inked glossy photo paper and did a lot fussy cutting.

Enjoy the last day of this month with some butterflies, i guess there are a lot pumpkins coming up on blogland next

Thanks for reading and your appreciated comments
