Dave Lowe’s Moving Eye Portrait...

Dave Lowe is an incredibly talented artist and one heck of a prop builder, and If you’ve never checked out his Para Abnormal web comics, do not wait any longer, because there’s a pretty good chance that you’re going to love them. Anyway, he’s got a quick little tutorial on how he built his moving eye portrait.  Of course, it really helps if you have your own art that you can enlarge to start with (I honestly think that if I had Dave’s artistic abilities I’d probably fill an entire room with moving eye portraits).     The prop build is pretty straight forward.  Once you have your favorite portrait enlarged, just cut out the eye sockets and glue two ping pong ball halves on the back (concave so they have some depth).  Dave utilized green craft crystals for the iris which added a little sparkle to his portrait, but you could always just print one.

“Calm? Calm? Do murder and calm go together? Calm and murder? Murder?” -Luther Heggs   In 1966 Don Knotts posed that question, and fans of the Ghost and Mr. Chicken have been laughing at his classic portrayal of Luther Heggs, intrepid reporter ever since.  If you’re at all familiar with the film you’ll recall the classic scene where Luther comes across the portrait of old Mrs. Simmons that he had just seen intact five minutes earlier has been pierced with a pruning shears and is dripping blood, the exact way she was murdered 20 years prior.  Luther’s conniption fit upon seeing this is pure comedic gold, and he drops like a leaf, out cold.  I’ve always wanted a house like the old Simmons Mansion, and with Chris’ tutorial of the Bleeding Portrait, I’ll be one step closer.     It looks to be a little bit of a tricky build, but would definitely be a crowd pleaser in any haunt. Items used to create this include: Picture frame Portrait (one that you can cut up) Small water pump Flexible tubing Tray for blood Blood Varnish        ...
