Look at you go! That's just great... all of it! Have you posted the Oscar you made here in it's own thread? If not, do you have some better photos of the craft itself? I'd love to see more of this awesome work you did.
This is just what I needed! We've been invited to a party with a zombie theme (zombify your last year's costume) and my costumes have always relied on my sewing and gluing abilities. No special make-up abilities AT ALL here!
If you sand that door, be sure to use at least a dust mask... if the house is old there is likely some lead paint on there somewhere. Make sure to clean up as much of the dust and larger particles as you can so you don't transfer it with your feet and animals and kids don't ingest it. If the paint is bubbling a lot you may be able to remove a lot of it with a basic scraper which is hard work, but doesn't vibrate like a sander and takes off larger chunks of paint that's easier to pick up and harder to breathe in.
There is an orange-scented stripper that doesn't smell good, per se, but does smell like really strong orange-like stuff. Again a respirator will come in handy and eliminate the scent while you wear it.
