I intend to place this inside a snack bowl with whatever candy or chips making it look like the hand is rising from some void .
This was a Halloween project I had not planned on. However, one evening Rosa was cruising around Pinterest and saw something similar and said: "you should make something like this." So I did. Interestingly, due to already having all sorts of 'bits & shits' laying around, I only had to spend around $2.00 on this. ( a cheap Dollar Store hand, and a base....only because I was being lazy and Walmart had a decent one for 97 cents.)
I sliced the knuckles of the hollow hand about halfway with a razor so I could position the fingers the way wanted them with coat hanger wire inside. Then I made the arm out of some scrap dowels I had taking up space in the garage. I used paper towel this time with the liquid latex rather than toilet paper to give the skin a scaly, dimpled texture. And finally I just assembled it all and painted it. The eye was made from a discarded doll's eye (plucked from the dolls I made last year) inserted into a ping pong ball, and enhanced with latex.
And since Halloween is now less than a week away, how is this for a painting project?
Though I suppose if one is going to 'take a brush to someone's behind', it won't end up like this.
It will probably be more like these:
But not all Halloween is cuteness and kink.....especially in my house. I promised to share some of my favorite, creepy art pieces that I've found online, so here's one to start things off:
Not sure of the artist, but it's like a blend of Corot and Gorey!
