Mr Pumpkin Head...

.. remember these?....well one is finished... meet Mr Pumpkin Head..all painted and with his new hat on.His body is made from a circle of old curtain velvet simply gathered, filled with plastic pellets and glued around his neck, you could use rice or beans.


The print is stamped... ink up your stamp, I used Archival ink ,place the stamp face up, place the fabric on top of the stamp and iron with a hot dry iron.... this sets the ink and also embosses the design onto the velvet.Only use rubber stamps not clear ones.

Still got Mr Skeleton to finish...
