|Pumpkin Monster Card by Neil Burley|
Here's how I made my pumpkin monster card:
here. Print onto the thickest white card your printer can handle.
Wow! Mandarin Opaque Primary and Wow! Primary Bark and then add a dollop of Wow! Metallic Copper. If you're using a small size Wow! jar, it's about 5mm depth of each the colours and a covering of the metallic. Shake well to mix thoroughly. This is your 'dark mix' and will be used on the shaded areas (bottom).
Wow! Mandarin Opaque Primary with one third Wow! Primary Lemon, and then a dollop of Wow! Metallic Brass. Shake well to mix thoroughly.
Wow! Mandarin Opaque Primary across the middle section first, tap off the excess. Repeat with your light mix across the top, and dark mix across the bottom, overlapping each with the Mandarin layer in the middle (this helps the blending). Once the section is covered, heat set your powders taking care not to overheat them. Repeat with all the sections.
I've mounted the sections onto a black base board, with the outer two sections being stuck down with double sided tape, the next with a single layer of foam pads and the middle section mounted on two layers. Affix an A6 card in landscape format to the back, and trim the front half of the affixed card to the shape of the pumpkin. Add the facial features with a permanent black pen, or cut out from card and stick down with double sided tape.
