INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Paint the mask with Blue Mist. Allow to dry and apply a second coat. Highlight around the eyes, lips, and nose with Light Buttermilk. Use Lamp Black to paint on the eyebrows, mouth part, and stitches. Mix a quarter size of Light Buttermilk with 1 or 2 drops of Razzle Berry on a palette; use mix to basecoat the lips.
  2. Use Razzle Berry to fill in the lips. For the cheeks, add a drop of Razzle Berry to the palette or plastic plate, load a brush with water, and mix with Razzle Berry for a watercolor effect. Paint the watered down Razzle Berry onto the cheeks. Use Raw Umber around the eyes and Patina Green to highlight the scars.
  3. Cut Styrofoam squares into a beehive hairstyle. (It should be about 6" high.) Use greening pins and craft glue to secure. Allow glue to dry. Once the Styrofoam hair glue is dry, wrap the hair in dark-colored tape (blue or black).
  4. Create two 12" bundles of hair. To make bundles cut six 24"-pieces of yarn and tie them in the middle. Create one 6" bundle. Cut 6 pieces of yarn 12' long; tie in the middle.
  5. Use hot glue to attach the longer bundles of yarn to the temples of the mask. Attach the 6"-bundle to the top of the forehead. Draw the yarn to the top of the beehive, tying yarn around the back at each indentation of attached Styrofoam. Use strips of cobweb to make the streaks of grey: Hot glue from the temples to the top of beehive. Tie the hair at the top with yarn and tuck it behind the top of the Styrofoam beehive with greening pins and hot glue.
  6. Tuck her hair behind the beehive at the top and secure with glue and greening pings. Dry brush a small plastic spider with Light Buttermilk and hot glue to hair.
