Coffin - The coffin comes as a kit that I purchased from Retro Café. It is constructed of sturdy Masonite and comes together very easy with just a little glue. I painted it with a 3 step crackle technique using Martha Stewart's Weather Crackle Effect. I used a chalk paint by Paper Artsy for the top coat. Added a mini toy skeleton and a rifle (specialty brad.)
Bottle on Front - The bottle is a Masonite cut-out that I purchased from Retro Café Art. I painted with the same crackle effect that I did on the coffin. Printed teensy tiny elements from the Periodic Table for the label.
Crackle Background on Back - I used a quick and easy method here. I first base coated using a chalk paint by Paper Artsy, and then stamped with a crackle background stamp. I like how the color looks like the sun-baked ground out in the desert.
Mad Scientist - I love this little rubber stamp from Amuse Studio. I altered him by changing his head. Fans of the popular TV show, Breaking Bad, will recognize this dude as Mr. White aka Heisenberg. LOL
Thanks for looking.
