Flying Skull People! by Lesley

Hey people. Lesley here with some little hanging ornaments for you.
I really should stop make hanging type things.......they are such a pain in the butt to photograph!!

I found these weird shaped egg type wooden things in my stash......though they would be good to use as bodies. I used an air drying modelling fixative to attach the skulls to the bodies.
And then used another piece along the back to attach the wings.

Before attaching the wings, i heat embossed each set.

I love the detail you can see on the wings!
Next, i painted them both and added a touch of crackle glaze, and then some metallic wax on top.

I'm not a glitter fan.....but i do like a bit of sparkle, and the little crowns are super sparkly!

I used the teeny tiny hearts out of the Valentine mini shapes on the front of the bodies.

To hang them i added little screw fitting and added a length of chain to the top and bottom and hung a crystal.

Thanks for reading,

  1. Lesley, these are fantastic! I know just what you mean about when you've created dangling things and it comes to photographing them! Every time I say 'Never again!' Then I forget! :)
