This took AAALLLLL day to create.
I wanted to do something for the Fancraftic contest (villain theme!) [link]
but since I've been visiting home due to some family medical matters, I really haven't had much of a chance to work on ANYTHING. =_= But today I got an early start and worked on this. Yay!
ANYWHOOSLE- The idea behind this was to use shrinky dinks, my preferred medium as of late, in an interesting way. I've been digging my coloring technique (which is apparently somewhat unique?), but sometimes shrink jewelry just needs something more. I went for a broken glass look which I feel is somewhat fitting for Silent Hill in its many incarnations, and achieved it by drawing out the design, cutting the shrink plastic, taping the plastic down with proper spacing, then tracing the design. Once cooked and shrunk, I fit the pieces back together (not as easy as it sounds) and attached them to a piece of white tulle to maintain a bit of transparency.
The piece is fairly large and I don't feel it translated as a necklace as well as I would've liked (Ph's right hand looks odd, but to clarify, the palm is out and the thumb is down), but in the end I'm quite pleased with it! I tried a new technique and had positive results.
Even though it's intended to be worn around the neck, it would also make a pretty awesome window hanging (it looks really cool with light streaming through the breaks in the plastic)!
So yeah! I hope all you Silent Hill 2 fans enjoy this!! Hand crafted AND hand drawn by me. Pyramid Head is from the Silent Hill video game series. Materials used: shrink plastic, marker, pencil, crayon, tulle, jewelry chain and findings, acrylic.
update: Here's a progress shot from before the plastic was shrunk!
