I'm hosting another "wicked" swap now with my good buddy cackle. The theme this round is "Wicked Children", and the task was to choose a wicked person off your partner's list and depict them as a child. My partner, lanikins, had Captain Spaulding as her number one choice. I had never heard of the esteemed Captain Spaulding, but a Google search indicated he is a fictional character from a Rob Zombie movie. Best of all, he is a vicious, serial killing, evil clown. Right up my alley!

 The back story on this character was that he grew up in a foster home and loved the circus, especially circus freaks. I decided to depict him in his room, with circus posters on the wall. He's wearing pajamas which are exactly like the costume he wears as an adult killer clown. I painted the pj's onto cardstock and glued them on top of a photo of a boy I found online. In his right hand is a knife he stole from the kitchen, and in his left hand he's holding the string to a toy elephant. That little psychopath has fashioned a noose and hung a rubber chicken!

Here's a closeup of the inside of the tin with the name added:

The clown on top is a vintage cupcake pick that I repainted to match Captain Spaulding's makeup. The feet are made from paper clay, and are painted to match the clown outfit he wears as a nasty murdering adult.

Here's one of the photos I used for reference, framed on the back of the tin.

I'm sure you'll agree that he is one creepy clown! I had the best time making this tin. The sendout date for the swap is August 28th, and I can't wait to see what everyone else makes to feature the creepy child they choose to depict. If you want to check it out later, the gallery for this swap can be found here. You'll probably want to bookmark it. Cheesy

You're a creative nightmare, but in a good way. Smiley The rubber chicken is my favorite part.

I am afraid of clowns, but I looked anyway! (I appreciate the warning, so I could prepare myself). What a great project and so well crafted, even if I can't look at it for long. Oh well, if I have nightmares I have only myself to blame! Nice job!
