WIP Wednesday: Ticket Takers

Things are finally calming down and I'm getting back into a semi-routine again and that means crafting. (of course!)

"Ticket Takers" is coming along, but in a different direction. First, the skeleton I intended to use was too big and I was going to have to decapitate it. While at a monument shop, I discovered their fairy garden supplies had a few skeletons in them. This one fit the coffin perfectly! I glued it into place and then added a layer of chunky black glitter.



After botching a photo, I rummaged through my Other People's Family photos and found these two kiddos. I wanted to make them more skeletal but didn't want to botch them up too so I found these skull charms. Almost there, but not quite.
I found some skull and cross bone charms in my stash and snapped off the cross bones. They look a bit more menacing. I added some iron paint and I'll rust them tonight along with some other do dads for the "His and Hers" project.
The flower embellishment is a little experiment. I added the iron paint to some brass embellishments and we'll see how the rusting agent reacts with both. Fingers crossed ...
