Assuming you don't mind...your technique will be copied. It looks like a fun project I can do with my daughter. She LOVED doing the baby in a jar last year so I am confident she will love doing these too,
Hey David!! Thanks for the nice comments!! It is numerous layers of paint, I started with a light grey base, it had a a blueish tone to it. Then I "tea stained" them with black watered down paint, I make the stain with quite a bit of black paint so I don't have to do as many passes. Like probably 1 to 3 ratio of black acrylic paint and water. I applied 3 coats of the black tea stain, this is a good outside project because they dry a lot faster. After tea staining I very lightly dry brush on some crab apple green paint, in just a few spots and for the final coat I dry brush on the same light grey base paint I started with.
I did get the message....sorry missed responding.. you are welcome.
Hey David, not sure if you got my PM, I sent it last week, but thank you so much for the teeth!! Love em'!
Happy Easter David!!
I know the shrouded body room will be a challenge for the actors, we are planning on having two live shrouds! We have the armerature complete for 6 shrouded bodies already. Some fabric we will cinch, others will be loose. We are going to attach vent motors to a few so they have a swaying motion as well, I think hubby has 2 finihsed. We intend to have 12 shrouded body props and two shrouded actors in the room. It will be tight and meandering, so hopefully that will confuse and create tension. We also use Froggy's Fog scents throughout our haunt, I think this room will need the dreaded Slaughter House, it smells AWFUL!!
You are right, if I add the staked pig heads some need to be really rotting, with maggots and ooze! And more Slaughter House....muwahahahaha....no rotting corpse me thinks??!!
Appreciate your input David, keep them coming!
Thanks, the brains looked awesome, and I think you outdid the original.
Thanks David, those are brains I made using an Allen Hopps YouTube tutorial. He has many good tutorials and ways to make things economically. They look pretty realistic in low light, although mine didn't sink quite like his did, I think maybe I scrunched the tinfoil too tightly?? They turned out well though and were cheap to make, I made 4 and still have silicon left to make more for next year!
Since you are taking photo requests do you have a close-up of the specimen jars in your lab? image 10 at the moment.
