Morning all and happy week, this is Natassa Blazaki, with a new project for Spooktober. That challenge inspired me so much!
The Witch Behind the Mask
So, it’s the last week of October and the theme now is “The Witching Hour”. As I was google searching for witches and witchcrafts to get some inspiration, I saw a poster from Disney’s
Snow White that shows the face of magic mirror and the reflection of the Witch’s face. I got the idea of creating this canvas with a mask, that behind it hides the wicked witch.
Of course it had to be rough, with lots of texture and rust. Rust goes with everything!
I used shades of yellow, orange and purple, which is a classic color palette for the Halloween.
To create that rough, uneven texture on the canvas, I used a lot of Structure Paste, which I thickly applied with a pallet knife in a stippling motion. To color the background I used a combination of Artist Pigments and Matt Chalk Paints.
I also used lots of Mixed Media Transfers on the canvas the mask and the fabric. To make them look distressed, I sanded them with a piece of 240 grit sandpaper.
I truly hope you enjoy the project and get some inspiration.
Remember to play along at Creative Expressions Spooktober Challenge and use the #cespooktober tag, so we can find your projects.
You all have a great week
