“Hey! Do you want a golden baby-head paper weight?”
“Yes, please! I love goooooooold!”
The ladies of The Kraft ventured into a less traditional craft project this past meeting. Our craft came from The Big-Ass Book of Crafts by Mark Montano.Our chosen craft focused on the beheading of dolls, as well as the painting and general tagging of the doll’s heads to create paperweights.
And some that were a touch unsettling…
This craft was quite easy to execute. First, you mix the plaster of paris,
After filling the heads, put them to the side to harden. Now, these baby heads really heat up due to some sort of reaction that takes place when the plaster dries…make sure they are fully hardened and cooled because things will get really creepy if you don’t–as you will see.
So, once the heads dry, spray paint them black.Again, make sure that your baby head cools down or else it will look diseased and things will get real unpleasant!After the black spray paint dries, sprinkle your baby head with water, then spray paint it gold to make it look antique. Once it dries, you’re done!
Ours didn’t turn out exactly how the book said they would, but they were gold and wonderful (just don’t look them directly in their solid gold eyes)! Overall, another success and another really great time crafting and spray paining. Here are some spray paint outtakes:
