For the past couple of weeks I have been experimenting with some Halloween prop building. Built this grinning tombstone with my friend in terror, Jordan Colton. This was made from a sheet of insulation foam, some papier mache clay, and some creative painting using acrylic craft paints.
I learned a lot from building this, and I am looking forward to doing more projects in this same vein. Oh yeah, gotta give credit for the inspiration on this to "STOLLOWEEN". Check out his website via the link here on my blog.

The second of two Bottle Cap Monsters I painted last night. Finally got around to painting the lovely Elsa Lanchester as The Bride of Frankenstein. This one is for my friend and talented artist Chrissie Altese. I promised her I would paint a Bottle Cap Monster for her quite some time ago, and this was the monster she picked. Great choice! I am a huge fan of The Bride, and I was worried it was going to be tough to capture a good likeness of her at such a small scale. I am really happy with the way this one turned out.
As usual, this is acrylic paint inside a bottle cap lid.
Got in some painting time last night, managed to create 2 new Bottle Cap Monsters. The first was this version of Frank The Bunny from the film "Donnie Darko". This is the third time I have been asked to paint this character in a bottle cap- this one is for my good friend Jordan Colton. As usual, this is acrylic paint inside a bottle cap lid.
