The Count - Finnabair Brand Ambassador

Can I introduce you to the Count? …or rather his casket. The Count has a guarding eye while he sleeps to keep him safe and unharmed. Besides the eye his casket is decorated with gears, a skull, and bones. While there’s some glittery red blood on the casket, I’m not totally sure this is spooky… A touch eerie, maybe?

This project was made inspired by the Finnabair Brand Ambassador post theme "Spooky Bloody Crafts". I was thinking what to do when I came across that little casket box. A perfect start to the project!

I decorated the little wooden casket using different Finnabair mediums. First, I created some texture to the piece using hot glue. I also used glue to mould the embellishments. To adhere everything in place I used Heavy Body Gel. After it had dried, I painted the casket with black gesso, then with various Art Alchemy paints and then dry brushed some white. I made a glittery “blood” by mixing red glitter to Liquid Acrylic. I finished the piece with some matte wax to make the casket look a bit older.

If you want to see how I made the eye, please check out this Facebook Live recording (link). I make a similar eye there only with fewer mediums. 

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you an excellent day!
