Haunted Design House "I'm Melting"
Macabre Monday project is posted today, with the mid-week inspiration. Our theme is "I'm melting", the challenge is to create a creepy, gothic or Halloween based piece using a melted medium or image such as candles, witches, melted flesh, you get the idea here, don'tcha? I pulled out my boney finger candy mold (meant for candy covered pretzels) and fashioned a candle. Not too tough except I burned my own little pinkies stopping up the hole where the pretzel is supposed to rest. The mold only does one side so after they set, I added the wick and stuck them together with more hot wax. I did a little shading with Copics and it was good to go. Perfect for my Dia de los Muertos candle holder. WooHoo! Please visit HDH for additional inspiration and come play along, if you dare.
