Progress update

Dear panda head, I wish I can complete you with a snap of my fingers! Wonder when can I completely done with it. I still need to make raccoon head which haven't start at all! I guess I need to draw more Daccoon episodes at the mean time.

On the other hand, I am continuing making the second look which is the butterflies look as I have mentioned in the previous post. This is pretty time consuming work, I was cutting out all the butterflies with two different sizes from the recyclable card board from drink container such as fruit drinks, or soya bean drink container, hope you get what I mean.

Pasted one layer of used/printed one sided white paper on the side of the cardboard which have prints on as I want the butterflies to have just the sliver side and the white paper covered side. Then, I sprayed them with spray mount to allow the sliver glittering dusts stick on them. Better make sure you have good air ventilation in your room because it does smells while doing this process. After dried, spray one more transparent aerosol spray layer as it serves as a lamination or protection and remove the sticky function from spray mount which have on the butterfly shaped cards.

Next, i sew them on a black net hat which I made from a duct tape and potatoes container net which you can find it from supermarkets. But before you use them, make sure its clean.  

This was a snap photo of me trying out the hat which was halfway attaching them to the net

The making of a simple crown

Its my first time making a crown and I do think I made it wrongly as you can see how funny or odd it looks like on my head. But I am thinking to continue making it, the design is still the same like what I previously sketched, just became bigger slightly, so I maybe wanting to make the model's hair big volume, frizzy or wavy, still thinking though.

and of course, it doesn't fit my head size because I made it according to her size.

But still look big and I know why because I made the front part extended forward from her head size so look bigger. =.="

 For the necklace I made it adjustable length, I more satisfy with my necklace.
The works will on going and to be continue and I know I am kind of slow. Sorry about it. I will work my best!

Making of props for White Queen project

Images above shown one on the left is the earliest sketch I have made before finalising and the one on the right is the second look as part of the project that I want to photographed in this white themed project.

As I mentioned earlier, you can see this was based on the initial sketch design that I try to make but yet I feel not very satisfying although i initially do want to have the net eye brows to add and give the oddness as what I want to portray.

Rabbit Spoon Holder

This is not something I recently made but something I have missed out on posting it here.Ops! my bad haha. Anyway, can you guess what does the bunny body is made of? Of course you know that ears are the Chinese pattern table spoons.

Sketch for Upcoming Photoshoot Project

Sorry for the long delay of updates on my blog, recently have been busy managing and revamping my blogs. Yes I have a few blogs. Here's a very rough sketch of the look and feel and makeup concept that I want to do for my next project working with my makeup artist friend and hairstylist.

I ended up didn't spend too much time tidying the painting and lines, just roughly do as I just wanna use this to show my partners the idea. And also, because i thinking if this going to be the masterpiece, then I might as well not turn it into photoshoot. So I pay less attentions to the details. I also do notice my painting and drawing skills dropped after long time absence on drawings.

But overall, I still do not want to disappoint myself too much and also my readers and spoilt the standard and image of being an artist. I still ended up trying to make it look presentable.  I hope I did. What do you think?

Below is just a clearer version to show how the makeup I want it to be to my makeup artist and hairstylist. Wish me good luck!

Handmade Bow Tie 3

This time I spent more efforts on  detailing the bow tie and still remain to my passion on using recyclable, used materials. I chose garbage bag cut into stripes and weave them. I used the beverage card packaging material like from the fruit juice product card container/soy bean card container to make the triangular shapes and form the bow tie shape.


For the packaging box of the bow tie I made as a present box for my birthday friend, I reuse a used car box and mounted/stick one layer of newspaper as it is what I picture for the box. I added doodles and my logo. I drew the triangle with an eye on the box is not only matching the bow tie details and also is a symbol  of unambiguity

Handmade Glasses

My third time making a glasses where this time I have put much more effort and improvement on the glass than my previous ones. I added a simple touch on design by having little 3 stripes at side to gives a sporty kind of feel and this glasses is much bigger than the previous ones which is bigger size like a goggle just for experimenting and fun. Added a plastic shade as lens. The whole glasses frame is made by newspaper with PVA glue, metal strings and little bit of polystyrene I got it from the take away food container.

The image above was my first time handmade spectacles without plastic/lens on it and its fragile.It's only polystyrene and newspapers with PVA glue made. Then painted with mural paint.

Big Birthday Cake Card

This is an old birthday card i made for my partner's birthday, I eventually spent almost RM70 (kind of expensive to me but its worth for making someone happy) for printing this in A2 size paper and paste on a card board if I didn't remember wrong. When the card opens up, it forms a chocolate 3 storey cake with his friends printed on card standing on the cake.

Handmade Bowtie

Hello, I finally have made some time for myself and hand made a bow tie based on looking at one bow tie i had and self customize and stylized it. I bought a stainless steel buttons from Daiso and put the cloth clamped  and covered outer surface of the button. I made this for valentine day. =) Hope you all like it and gave comment. The cloth I get is from unwanted clothes and unwanted cloth from manufacturer.=) The string attached around the bow tie with a colored blue and white stripes around it serve as holder for longer, excess length of the string for adjustable two sizes for the neck thickness =). Anyway, the button I sew on wasn't really user friendly as I tried to wear them but still usable.

 The size of this bow tie I made is slightly bigger compare to the orginal formal black bow tie i got from Daiso in order to match the proportion or keep proportionate to the big round button at the center. I hope you guys like it and I will further experiment on sewing bow tie or relevant ones.
