Zombie Madness

Standard

It seems like everyone today is struck with zombie madness. From adding zombies to Pride & Prejudice to the Glee performance of Thriller/Heads Will Roll. It’s interesting to look at our society when our interests shift to the monster variety – zombies, vampires, werewolves. What does that say about us? I’m as big a fan as any, so although it’s not a current project and it’s technically unfinished, I really wanted to share a few pics of one monster of a project (hardy har har).

I started working on this back in November, but haven’t been able to put the finishing touches on it yet. I found porcelain baby doll heads (from Germany, according to the seal) on a Goodwill trip. I had no clue what I would do with them, but for fifty cents, who could resist?

One friend suggested painting them, and then the idea struck us at the same time…ZOMBIES! I must say, even without the paint, the baby heads were slightly creepy. I decided to just start with one and save the other for a future project.

Creepy, eh? It gets creepier when it becomes all zombiefied. I used several layers of acrylic paint, and the way it dried and flaked some gave it an extra creepy effect. Did I mention you can spin the head all the way around? Freaky! My only remaining plan for this is to add some sort of tea light holder down in the center so that I can light a candle and the eyes will light up. Super spooky!
