Blick is running a Wearable Art Contest! Which as we know is right up my alley. The winner receives a nice art supply prize package that I can definitely use as well!
If you have a Facebook account please go here http://bit.ly/2xZwmjO and show my Hellraiser Cenobite Dead Girl Decay Barrette some entry love!
I chose this particular piece because it is still one of the funnest, wearable art commission pieces I have made to date. I am sure I will be one of the few whose entry comes from the dark side, but I hope to make Clive Barker and Doug Bradley proud! Plus, when haven’t my creations stood out from the norms 😉
This is a commission piece I completed for a Hellraiser horror movie fan. The center symbolizes Doug Bradley as Pinhead. It was made from Fimo Clay and hand painted to give it depth. Small nails were used as “pins”. The flower petals were all artificial flowers in various shades of blues, black and greys that were alternated between pieces of of patent leather snakeskin fabric that I cut to look like petals as well. I took necklace chain to symbolize the torture chains used in the film and of course splattered it with red paint to give that blood effect that all horror fans love! The customer was beyond happy with the end result.
I got my hands on some beautiful vintage brooches and am starting a new line of Dead Girl “Vintage” Decay Barrettes! These are for those of you that like vintage, burlesque, victorian, gothic, sparkly bling! These would even be perfect for a bride to be looking for something unique for their big day! No two of these barrettes in this line will ever be the same! Making them unique and one of a kind for any special event!
Here are the first three I have made so far and they are currently for sale in my Etsy shop! I thought I would start off by making some that went with the feel of the winter season!
