As we all know – Halloween is coming and we all are going to celebrate it somehow. I know it is hard to prepare the costume especially when you are working from 9 to 5 or you have a family. Remember, there’s always a way out. I was surfing the internet and found this interesting DIY. There will be almost no efforts and you will be looking like that cool white collar with boiling brains.
So, you will need:
Fitted cap, without adjuster
Craft knife or seam ripper
Acrylic paint, red and black
Bowl, approximately same size as cap
2 tubes of latex or acrylic caulking (not silicone)*, ivory or bone color
And now, make this steps:
Step 1: Remove the cap’s brim by carefully ripping the seams with a craft knife or seam ripper.
Step 2: Place the cap on newspaper. Paint the cap with dark red paint (a mixture of red paint and a little bit of black paint). Let dry.
Step 3: On newspaper, create a work stand for your cap by placing a bowl upside down over a tall jar. Place a plastic bag over the bowl, and the cap over the plastic bag.
Step 4: With a craft knife, cut the tip of the caulking tube to have an opening approximately 1/2″ in diameter. Load the tube into a caulking gun.
Step 5: Caulk convolutions on one half of the cap to create one hemisphere of the brain. Repeat on the second half of the cap.
Step 6: Let the caulking dry for approximately one to two hours until the surface loses tack. Wearing gloves, lightly press on the convolutions to slightly flatten the surface.
Step 7: Let the caulking cure for 24 hours.
Step 8: Once the caulking has cured, mix water with red paint and a little bit of black paint, to a thin, runny consistency. Use a brush to dab paint mixture onto the caulking, focusing on crevices. Apply a second coat if needed. Let dry.
So, as you could see, this will be pretty interesting, spooky and easy-to-make image. Let your brain to generate a spooky idea!
