This is a super easy project that has 1,000 or more variations.
- Block of Wood
- Yarn or Rope
- Acrylic Paint
- Nails (for Franken-tiki)
- Hot Glue or White Glue (hot glue for rope; white glue for yarn)
- Brayer (for the golden tiki)
Start with a block of wood and hammer a couple of giant fucking nails into the sides. Crooked and big are fine! Do a Google image search for franken-tikis to pick a good face to start with. Sketch it onto a block of wood using a pencil. It will leave a slight indentation on soft wood. Pick the best shade of ghoulish green yarn.
Paint it a sickly green. I mix yellow and black and add water so that the wood grain shows through.
When it's dry, outline the pencil marks with white glue. Cut the yarn to size and press it into the glue lines.
Add more paint in different shades of ghoulish green. The eyes should be white/yellow, and keep in mind that the low brow will leave a weird shadow just below it (that's why I didn't fill in the entire eye space; leave the tops of the eyes dark).
Using a dry brush, add a few more splotches of color, and make the hair black.
Draw a face onto a block of wood with a pencil.
Trace the pencil lines with hot glue and follow with cuts of rope.
Do the same as above, only use white glue and any motherfucking color yarn.
Use a brayer to add iridescent paint onto the yarn part only. If you use a brush, you risk getting the shiny shit onto the dull background.
