I love the grumpy faces, d'awww.
The face paint is perfect, especially the dark marks under the eyes. I'd love to see finished pics!

Horns done! (Posted 27th December 2011)

I glued them on a headband and then cut holes in my wig for them to poke through so the band is hidden, but they’re so small I could have probably glued hairclips to the bottom of them and just clipped them into the wig. Definitely would have been easier haha ;;

Candy Horns (Posted 25th December 2011)

These were made from some brown model magic. I gave them two coats of enamel paint in buttercup yellow, then mixed up the yellow with some red fabric paint (yeah whatever) to make the middle orange and the bottom reddish-orange layer. Four layers of paint total- probably could have used less if I had used white model magic in the first place!

The bottom reddish layer went kind of bumpy but actually I'm happy with this effect. It's going to be mostly hidden by my wig anyway, but I think that horns on animals tend to have a keratin layer at the base so I think this kinda mimics it? It has nothing to do with me mixing types of paint which clearly aren't meant to go together! haha.

I did a crappy little photoshop haha

Nubby Horns (Posted 16th December 2011)

Made these in about 10 minutes, I'm planning on attaching them to a headband and hiding the headband underneath my wig. Need to wait 24 hours for them to air dry and then I'll paint them tomorrow.
