Week 2 of Skullduggery at HDH
Oh yes! It's our second week of our Skullduggery Challenge at HDH and I've finally gotten around to making a faux porcelain skull with my meltpot using the fabulous step by step Tutorial by our own fabulous Minion Sister Blackdragon available in the Mixed Media University Group on the Smeared and Smudged Forum. So many cool things happening over there. The skull is a Smeared Ink digi that was printed 6 times, fussy cut and layered according to the tut. WooHoo! BD does the most amazing work and my effort cannot even begin to compare with hers, but I'm pretty damn proud of the result, just the same. I've mounted it on a Tim Holtz Ornate Plate and added tiny metal roses and turned it into a necklace.
I'm entering this in the LOC Anniversay ATG Challenge (last day, BooHoo!) as well as the LOC Ribbons/and or Flowers challenge.
Corrosive Challenge Show Us Your Metal
Tip Top Tuesday Metal or Faux Metal My TIP for Tip Top Tuesday is after removing your creation from a Meltpot, you can easily remove bubbles or other imperfections with your heat gun.
Quoth the Raven Tic Tac Poe using the left verticle line of Hardware or Metal, Skull and Flowers and although it hasn't a specific reference to Poe, I think it speaks to his preoccupation with Death and I did find reference to "enamell'd head" in the poem Al Aaraaf. (Perhaps a stretch. LOL)
