My Quest Bathroom's Halloween Decorations KILL!







On the chest are numerous items that Dracula and his wife need to keep that delicate balance between keeping attractive and the death that haunts them....
Here's what I did: I bought the porcelain lady at the Goodwill store for $2.99. She was painted in pastel colors and not done very well, so I didn't feel bad about transforming her in to "Death Becomes Her". I just spray painted her with a grey primer and used craft acrylics to paint her dress, I whitewashed her skin and hair. I then smudged black around her eyes and when that was all dried, I sprayed clear acyclic all over to seal in the paint.
Dracula's dentures are those cheap plastic ones at the drug store. I got out some polymer clay and rolled it to fit into the area that your teeth fit into so that the teeth wouldn't collapse (gently taking the clay out of the teeth, I then baked it in the oven per directions on the package). I then placed the teeth in the jar and filled it with that acrylic stuff that you use for fake flower arrangements. The jar is from the dollar store. It's fun to hear my friends remarks after their surprise to have entered Dracula's personal bath.....



I'll be posting fun Halloween ideas for entertaining and decorating all this month.
