Long in the Tooth

"Long in the Tooth"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that shows us some chompers, teeth, fangs, dentures, etc.!
Creepy toothy grins to wind up teeth!
If it has something to do with teeth, we wanna see it!
That's the challenge this week guys and gals.

I wasn't feeling up to scratch last week so this project and the one in the next post were a bit hurried. My apologies.

I made a bag charm for Haunted Design House - I've had these gorgeous fang charms for my friend Karen over at Duck Pond Crafts, for what seems like ages, and some were just itching to be used.
Armed with some shrink plastic and the image "Call of the Wild" from Delicious Doodles, I made the main "dangle". A moonstone with round silver buckshot, the fangs, the bullets image is from Smeared Ink's Chicks dig guns set and was stamped in silver onto black shrink plastic. All these were hung from a silver chain with a lobster claw clasp.

The same "Call of the Wild" image for the box top. This was layered up with 5 layers and dipped in bronzed UTEE. The background is just stormy sky and dusty concorde DI applied after masking off the moon which is coloured with antique linen DI

You've got until next Sunday to show us those gnashers. So let's see them.
The other minions have been hard at work as well, so go see what they've been up to and there'll be more inspiration on Wednesday from Teri and Creepy Glowbug.  See you soon?
