Necro Neckware: Haunted Design House
The shapes you can pop out of the freezer these days are shocking, and wonderful: Someday I'm going to pick up this tray that makes Moai-inspired statues.
Anyhow, back to the point: UTEE, silicone ice cube trays and Macabre Monday at Haunted Design House.
This week's challenge, Necro Neckware, asks us to create a creepy, crawly bit of art that can be worn 'round the neck.
Around my house we're working on embedding LED lights into some of my UTEE shapes to create super neat glowy ... things. Until then I've been pleased with the possibilities provided by PearlEx and rhinestones.
Just look at this skull "cube!" She's filled with a bit of dark pinkish Pearl stuff and glitters with rhinestone eyes that were placed in the mold before the UTEE was poured.
Especially for this project I really wanted some sort of glow to add to my UTEE, alas I have no such product (do they sell glow-in-the-dark UTEE ... and why the hell not?).
Still, this piece does offer a shiny and glimmery and glittery bit of fun whether it's laying against skin or hanging in front of a sunny window (ahm, no, I mean moon-lit window).
You have until Sunday afternoon to show off your own Charm-ing skills at the Macabre Monday challenge sponsored by Kasket Kustoms.
