I’ve had this mould for quite a while now, but for some reason, I never seem to remember to use it. Since I have a few craft fairs coming up, I figured I’d re-introduce some soaps that haven’t been shown in a while, such as this 3D alien head.
I wanted to give the alien the glowing eyes, but it’s hard to do it when you don’t have the proper lighting behind it to make the eyes pop. Or the right special effects person guiding you.
I guess I could’ve tried painting in the eyes, but then I remembered that a lot of the drawings of aliens gave them black eyes. So, back to the drawing board.
It was tough getting the soap base to fill in the eyes properly. In fact, it ended up looking like a toddler went to paint this using the tail of a cat. But in some ways it’s better because it makes it even more creepy. Perfect for Hallowe’en at least.
