Thanks again!:D  I have to admit, she was a little hard to part with. I think I'll try to make one for myself at some point.
this is impossibly beautiful.  how did you accomplish the gradation under the eyes?  was it marker bleed or marker/crayon combo? 
Thanks! The cheeks are crayon tinted. Directly under the eyes, I did a bunch of layering and blending with crayons and markers (which did bleed a bit) until I was satisfied with the result.

Thanks, guys! Smiley  I think I might have to make some for myself now too.
43  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / B-Movie Themed Resin Pendants. on: July 16, 2008 11:15:18 AM
I made these for the 50's B-Movie Swap. There are so many great B-movie posters, it was hard to choose which ones to use. I didn't want to completely overdo it on the movie posters, so I added a scene from "Creature From the Black Lagoon". The "Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" poster has red glitter in the layer behind it. The other two have black and silver glitter mixed together. (Sorry, I know the pics are not great.) I had another one cast that would have become a ring, but somehow a bunch of the glitter from the second layer bled/shifted to the bottom of the mold (the front of the image). Still not sure how that happened.

Plus some more I poured at the same time that were more generally horror-themed. The earrings are a little hard to see, the have black tombstones, like the ones in the pendant.

I made a beaded necklace and bracelet to go with them. It was really hard to find chunky plastic beads, but I finally found some on Etsy. As you may have noticed, I attached lobster clasps to the pendants so that they can easily be changed around on the beaded necklace without messing with jump rings and pliers.

Thanks for looking. Smiley

Beyond awesome.

I was the lucky recipient. I hope mamaedgar doesn't mind if I take the liberty of posting and "action shot". Grin

Thanks so much! Cheesy  I've been so busy the past few months, it feels like so long since I've posted anything. Nothing like a swap for inspiration and a kick in the arse. Wink

This is super great.  Are her iris' of her eyes crayon tinted or stitched?  I can't tell.  You did a great job with her... I'm impressed, and absolutely love the subject matter.  I was the Bride of the Monster of Dr. Frankenstein for Halloween in college, this brings me back... dig it.
Thanks! The irises are stitched. They were tinted, but they were pretty light, and I wanted her eyes to "pop".

I made this for my partner in the 50's B-Movie Swap. She received her package today, so I figured it's finally safe to post. Smiley

The image is based on one from a set of tattoo flash. My camera didn't pick it up very well, but her skin is a pale bluish-green with some shading around the clavicles, nose, etc. I used crayons to tint the lighter parts (that's all the rage these days, huh?), and marker for some of the darker stuff like her hair. Everything is done in backstitch, except her eyes, which are done in split stitch and her lips, in satin stitch. I searched for weeks for an oval-shaped frame, and finally found one that was the perfect size. I kind of dig how her eyes wound up looking bruised and bloodshot.

Thanks for looking!

I came home from getting a flat tire plugged Angry  to find both my packages from mamaedgar to cheer me up! Cheesy (Sorry if the pics are a little big, my laptop's not working, so I don't have any proper photo editing software.)

Everything together:

A super cute Frankensteiny purse in my favorite colour combination:

A crocheted Audrey II/Audrey Jr. pincushion. (In a terra cotta pot.)

Wist-inspired wall art and notecards from lino carvings she did. (With obligatory nosey cat shot.) Awesome - my family room is Horror/B-movie themed with a special emphasis on Frankenstein & Bride.

A cute little notebook decoupaged with movie posters.

And last but not least, a shrink plastic zombie pinup necklace. (Love! - I'm getting a zombie pinup tattoo next month.Smiley)

Thanks, mamaedgar, for the fabulous package, and for organizing!

That would be great. I've started to pack things up, and I was worried that I would have to leave one thing out, as it isn't dry yet!:( (It's been chilly and damp here.)
