Clowns are Scary...
Just getting around to posting some projects from this Halloween- I was inspired by some old photos for our Halloween Costumes this year. The idea was "1930s dust-bowl-trick or treaters." Thus I made these masks (p.mache, acrylic paint, twine) I tried to create masks that traditionally would not be scary but really are. The key was to make them look vintage- which was accomplished with a dry brush technique using browns and yellows. Wish I could have spent more time on them- the paint was literally drying on our way to the party.
