Thank you for stopping by.
Today we start our new challenge over at Haunted Design House the theme being the Legend that is Stephen King, Now we do not mind what aspect of Stephen Kings career you focus on, His comic books, novels or movies, we want to see it all.
I decided to go with one of his films, (also a Book) the one that scared the crap out of me as a kid and is probably the cause of a nation wide general fear of Clowns, thank you Stephen ;)
Ive made another page for my little book of dark arts, a posh way of saying fat page.
I started by painting the page of the book with acrylic paints by Deco Art, mainly white but mixing in some subtle greens, Juniper and mint I think also a little bit of fawn, I mixed the colours on the page so they would blend together.I then flicked some red paint across the surface so it looks like some blood splatter.
I then sourced the internet for a good picture of Pennywise and ran it through Photoscape to turn it into a threshold image (pure black an white, no grey) you can adjust the amount of black to white in the program.
When I was happy with it I printed it out to the right size and then used a some Transfer paper from Deco Art (it's basically a carbon paper) You trace around the image and it leaves the marks on your painted surface.Once I had gone round the whole image, I painted the black parts black and Pennywise comes to life.To finish off I just painted the 'IT' in free hand. This technique was shown to me on an Andy Skinner live workshop.
Head on over to Haunted Design House to see what else the awesome DT have created and remember to check back next Monday to see some more inspiration from the rest of the team.
As always we would love to see you join us by getting your freak on ;)
