Macabre Monday # I Scream for Ice Cream

The theme this time around is to be inspired by this short film:
For my contribution I decided to alter a porcelain Dolls Head and make it really creepy. I base coated the dolls head with DecoArt Media Gesso. When dry a coat of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Titanium white  was applied. Once dry a coat of DecoArt Media Crackle Glaze was then applied and left to dry.  Once dry the eye sockets and mouth were given a coat of Decoart media Fluid Acrylic in Carbon Black to define. Then Decoart Media Antiquing Cream was applied all over the dolls head and once dry wiped back to reveal all the lovely cracks.........Lovely. Seeing as the theme is Ice Cream related I decided to make an ice cream cone from scratch to place on the hole on top of the dolls head. The cone was constructed from 300 gsm cardstock which was embossed using a hessian embossing folder. Painted with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Carbon black and Dry brushed with Media Fluid Acrylic in Grey. The cone was then filled with Scrunched up Tissue Paper and Paper Clay was piped on top to form the ice cream A skull face and spider were attached to give extra creepiness and finally finished with a was of Media Fluid acrylic in grey. A bas was then constructed from the top of a wine bottle box and given the same treatment as the Dolls Head. As an extra Embellishment around the edge of the base a Tim Holtz Die was used to die cut 300gsm cardstock in black to tie the whole project together.
