I somehow forgot to post these at Halloween so here they are a bit late...

(Ended up displayed by family photos- which many people thought made them funnier)

I used dollar store Barbie knock offs and polymer clay for the exposed bones and brains. I saw this idea on another site back in October but made some changes.

I added the victim's head later using one of the dolls that I didn't think turned out as well so I just hot glued the head on to the hands.

Very easy to make BUT even low temp glue gun will melt the cheapo Barbies skin and hair so be careful-I burnt my fingers several times making them!

Hilarious. I just saw the Barbie exhibit at the children's museum a few weeks ago. I wish they'd had an altered barbie section with stuff like this! My favorite part is the arm bone sticking out.

How did you bake the polymer clay without melting the barbies? Did you do them separately then glue them in and paint them?

I baked the clay then cut open the dolls and glued everything. They were dollar store cheapie dolls so even the hot glue melted them!

hahaha, I don't know whether to laugh or scream, scary scary dolls! The one in the pink dress is particularly disturbing...

Good idea, and good job getting the clay to fit right Smiley
