Pumpkins

This is your chance to start building some great Jack O’Lantern props for Halloween. The September Pumpkin Workshop will allow participants to create their own large pumpkin complete with an elaborate carved face of their choosing. Past workshops have proven to be a very fun and enjoyable experience all while learning many different papier mache techniques.

Papier mache can be a bit messy so please dress accordingly. The class uses a variety of non-hazardous materials such as flour, glue and joint compound, as well as latex and acrylic paints.

Workshop cost is $100 per person which includes all tools and materials.

You are encouraged to bring your own drink and snack. Call (989) 750-6457 to register. Payment in the form of cash or check is due at the beginning of the first session. Class size is limited to 8 seats.

Zombie Heads

Papier Mache Workshop

 

 

Back by popular demand, this is the final Zombie Workshop before Halloween!

Ever since I was a kid I loved zombies – I thought they were the best things ever and that was way before it was cool to like zombies.

Join us for four evenings of icky, sticky, rotted zombie building fun. Participants create their own life-sized severed zombie head using a variety of papier mache techniques and commonly found recycled items.

Tombstones

Papier Mache Workshop

 

The first Tombstone Workshop was so much fun and produced such amazing results that another has been added for October.

Introducing the new STOLLOWEEN Papier Mache Tombstone Workshop, your chance to create a large, fully three dimensional and very creepy tombstone. During the workshop you will learn several different papier mache techniques along with methods to make engraved lettering, bevels, skull adornments, ornate designs, crack, spider webs and vines.

Students will need to supply their own large cardboard box and foam packaging materials and have access to a computer and printer for the tombstone lettering. Further details will be discussed when you call to register.

Tombstone Study

August 4th, 2009

ASHTON CEMETERY (36)

We visited an older cemetery located in Osceola County Michigan this past weekend.


The cemetery had an interesting collection of tombstones but the thing that really stood out was the amount of lichen and moss covering the majority of the markers.


The gallery of photographs should be useful for anyone interested in achieving an interesting and organic texture or paint scheme for their tombstone props.


View the gallery.
