21  House Haunt 2007: The Eternal Garden of Midnight: Completed Haunt Photos in Halloween Decor and Parties by TrentSketch on: September 06, 2007 03:53:37 PM
Everything is finished.  Done.  Complete.  Flickr slideshow at the link.

A simple guide to pic updates:
Mostly Wired Fly Trap
Fully Wired Fly Trap
Covered Fly Trap and Carving

After a quick and easy trip to Home Depot to pick up 55 dollars worth of supplies (wood, chicken wire, and insulation board - all that's really left are new flood bulbs and paint), I began to build the first prop for my house haunt this year.  The theme's official title is The Eternal Garden of Midnight.  Basically, a freaky garden theme.  It's a very good thing.

The first prop?  The largest, naturally.  My wonderful Venus Fly Trap.

It's made of solid pine (so far) and measures just under 80 inches tall (so far).

I'll be updating this as progress continues on my biggest house haunt yet.

22  Tragically Cute: Friendly Horror Figurines in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by TrentSketch on: May 30, 2007 07:09:57 PM
I've been on a polymer clay kick, and I do plan on sending in the money any day now for a dealer table at an upcoming horror conventions, so I decided to try my hand at doing some limited edition horror figurines.

I introduced my flagship character Franky the Cute Tragic Wolfman yesterday on Craftster.  You can see the closeups there so I don't eat up Craftster's bandwidth.

With that in mind, Franky would like to introduce his new friend Steve:

Steve had a little run in with his new pet snake:

So now Steve is known as Steve the Snake Owner.
But isn't his new friend vicious AND cute?

Look how well they get along:

They really are fast friends:

What's that Steve?  You can't breathe?  Oh bother:

Franky is 3.5 inches tall, Steve is 4 inches and a little more with his pet.  And they should be making a whole lot more friends over the coming weeks.

Last one of the month.  Some straight stitching on a mailed advertisement with permanent marker.

The penguin is saying "I don't dance."

24  Meet Franky, the Cute Tragic Wolfman in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by TrentSketch on: May 29, 2007 07:41:26 PM
I have a thing for horror.  I also have a thing for ridiculously cute animation-styled art.  So, why not combine the two together for some polymer clay figurines.

Introducing: Franky, the Cute Tragic Wolfman.  Tinfoil base, coated in Super Sculpey, with detail work done in Katoclay.  He stands 3.5 inches tall and really is simultaneously cute and tragic.

He just came out of the oven, so I still have to go in with some paint and tools and do touch up, add a base (he stands all right, but he's a little too rocky for me, plus I want these figures to all have matching bases with names), and play with him.

Wednesday's Entry:

Polymer clay image transfer of a still from Rosemary's Baby with 3-D polymer clay elements.  The ATC is the normal size and shape, I just couldn't get a good overhead shot of the transfer image so I wound up at that weird angle that makes it look like a misshapen parallelogram.

Spiderman, Spiderman,
Does whatever a spider can.
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies.
Look out! Here comes the Spiderman.

The movie was pretty bad, but I can't hate on NYC's own superhero, especially when it brought out cameos from Stan Lee AND Tyra Banks.  And a deliciously over the top Topher Grace performance that, combined with some cheesy dancing, impressive effects, and Bryce Dallas Howard, saved the film from being a complete and total disaster.

I like playing with bleach and obnoxious fake magazine covers.  You know, you buy the magazine and it turns out what you thought was the cover was actually a paid advertisement.  Those.

Not exactly what I intended to do (considering I can't find any of my embroidery hoops, machine or otherwise), but I still like it.  Iron-on transfer onto fabric with detail stitching onto another piece of fabric with more detail stitching and some hand drawn detail work.  It says, in my wonderful cursive, "Fabric is the New ATC of the Month."
