Made it through Scare LA and had a great weekend (except for, um…. breaking my toe. Because I think we can all agree I needed a new extremity to smack into things. Bashing one’s head is sooooo 2014).
And now, NOW I’m totally psyched for Halloween!…
Which seems a bit early frankly.
I have several project I want to share but….
Would you look at them and think, “interesting but I’m not ready to think Halloween yet David?”
I wouldn’t blame you.
I wasn’t ready either. The show forced me.
I very much appreciated all your insights about the Glowing Eyes Candle holders (I get it! No glitter! What can I say? I was going through an experimental phase!”) – thank you very much!
And after some more toying around (paper, paint technique and color) they really worked out well.
They look suitably Victorian and grim in regular lightand suitably creepy in dim light!I can so see these in rows along a mantle or clustered on a table at some really cool Halloween party.One of my customers said she was going to leave it in her bathroom to freak out her guests. And, best of all, they sold out at the show!
Happily, I took pics along the way for a tutorial but…..too early?
I also worked up some new displays.
OK there are a few finishing touches for it that I ran out of time to complete such as, you know, a back……but I’ll get it done!
So it’s all “on deck” so- to- speak. And my brain is stuck in Halloween mode and new ideas are coming.
But it’s August!
