Haunted House Design Wacko Jacko's HDH046

Over at the Haunted House Design, the challenge is Wacko Jacko's, crazy pumpkins and what not.  I love pumpkins in fact the Smashing Pumpkins is my fave band (just thought I would throw that one in there).  Anyway I made this pumpkin for halloween last year using papier mache then painted with acrylics, I then filled it with toy rats and body bits and sweets so the kids had to put their hands in his mouth and see what they pulled out.  They all absolutely loved it, so much after they won their prizes I had to refill it to play again.  Anyway I thought this could be my Wacko Jacko entry the picture isn't great but it was all I could find.


I painted dark brown as a base then mixed some gold and orange and dabbed it with a sponge to give a stippled effect.  Again sorry for the shockingly bad pic.

Hahaha! Wicked!! My sisters and I(yes there are 3 of us)made up Sis2's house like a creepy cottage and dressed up. We were nice to little children, but we made a 12 year old boy wet himself(by accident). Sis 2 was round a corner sneeking a ciggy and made him jump as he was leaving :D Classic!

This is wonderfully creepy! For the alcohol ink "rust" I used Scotch scrapbooker's glue dabbed thick on the cardboard, then added the inks. After that I blasted it with a heat gun. To find the tutorial, visit Willy's rust piece on her blog. She mentions "Kat's tutorial" with a link. It's pretty easy and fun, too. Thanks for coming to visit me :)
