Pumpkin Progress

Beren and I have been working on a Super Scary Pumpkin mask for the Halloween party at nursery and Scalloway Hall. Here's the recipe:


Take one balloon, sellotape it to give it a flatter, pumpkin look...
Guess the size of the head to go in it...
Shred the Shetland Times and dip in watered PVA and apply...
Leave to dry abd POP the balloon...
Cut out teeth and eyes...


So far so good!



Over several days:
Paint on poster paint mixed with PVA...
Paint on poster paint mixed with PVA...
Paint on poster paint mixed with PVA...
Realise that after several coats you'll never cover the print...
Note to self- paint with white emulsion first next time...
Use various old paints and a back marker to make a 

TOTALLY AWESOME SCARY PUMPKIN MASK!!!


Think:


Oh yeh, that's great we're definitely going to win, just need to make the suit now...



 Feel totally deflated when he decides he wants to be Darth 'bloody' Vader instead!


And it won't even fit my head or Clare's. I'll have to stick to my troll mask again this year; Clare erm...
