This little fella has always been one of my favorite halloween decorations.
It was created by my daughter so many years ago and it had been left naked up until this past weekend.
Finally after sooo many years, it is framed.
I kept putting it off because nothing ever felt right ... but once
I saw the black burlap I knew it was the perfect fit.
I used fabric spray adhesive to adhere the burlap to the cardboard backer
and then the bat to the burlap.
Painted the frame first with orange, second with a green crackle
and then a black/grey crackle on top of those.
Lastly I dry brushed a black gloss on the details to get them
to show more.
Jonathan can keep his turtles ... I like bats.
