My awesome partner, YumJello01, requested a triptych in OWS 72.  And she likes zombies...



Each section is an 8"x10" canvas.  The metallic silver background took almost 2 full tubes of acrylic paint...I would definitely use spray paint if I did it again.



To make the horde I found a bunch of different zombies online and combined them in Publisher.  I cut separate contact paper stencils for each section and painted the zombies on with black acrylic.  The house/barn was done the same way.  I wanted it to be graphic, so I painted it red and then did the outlines with a white paint pen.



To make it a little extra special, I made brain hangers out of Pluffy and a silicone mold.  I love Pluffy!  I just filled the mold and put it into the freezer for about 10-20 minutes.  The brains popped out perfectly onto my baking sheet, and it prevented finger prints and dents.  I then wrapped the edges on each canvas with black satin ribbon, and added 3M Command Strips to the back of the brains to preserve apartment walls and allow for easy hanging.



Thanks for looking!  Smiley

Love the brain hangers. Will have to check out this Pluffy you speak of.

The silver background and the red house are great touches as well!

Awesome work.
