hey all! so i participated in the OTT star wars swap, and i made this lil shrine for Ryn. She's posted a few pics over on the gallery, but i had so much fun making it and took so many pics, i thought i'd share some of my own......
here's the front - i covered it with this awesome scrapbook paper that looked like leather, then pasted a han outline on the front and painted over it with different tones of acrylic paint.
front opening of box - i thought this quote amusingly appropriate!
inside the box......
the first panel.... i call this "sexy han"!
the second panel - millenium falcon! textured black and silver scrapbook paper, a scrapbook starwars sticker, and some "meteors" kindly donated to me by my pet goldfish! he said he was remodeling his aquarium, and didn't need these particular rocks anymore...
here's panel three, and the most labor-intensive! i carved carbonite-han out of sculpey, then glued him down with hot glue and textured around him with gel medium - painted the whole thing with silver acrylic and added some accents. the shiny button you can't see too well is a sticker of chewie. here's an in-progress shot of han:
here's the 4th panel! i found this lil pic online of a "newspaper clipping" of an ad for 'cloud city ship repair' and it made me giggle - so i printed it on a piece of newsprint paper and tore the edges, then got the idea to put it with "i've got a bad feeling about this" han... again - just seemed appropriate!
the back of the box - image, of course, stolen off the internet and dressed up with a lil painting and one of Ryn's favorite quotes. (i tried to get all of her favorite quotes on here and then added a few of my own or ones that seemed to fit with what was going on in the particular panel
and don't forget artoo!!!!
