Demented Ramblings life is too short to refrain from eating jam out of the jar

I’ve not been cooking much, wanna see why?

Ladies and Gentlemen, Whackos and Darklings, it is my greatest pleasure to introduce unto you...

La Petite Bob.

Bob started out as a small plastic skull that I found in the clearance bin at JoAnn Fabric just before Christmas. I paid a whole whomping $0.40 for him. I base coated him flat black then painstakingly glued one millionz seed beads to him. That is fiddly work, right there, but it was a labor of love. At some point in the future, I will be doing this again with a larger skull (already dubbed Big Bob, I paid all of $0.80 for him) but I have a few other things in mind for the next one.

When I finished up, I decided that he needed a stand. I originally thought a flat black candle holder, but I couldn't find one that I liked. I did however find this silver one that I thought would do just fine. However, I decided it needed a little playing down, it was drawing too much of your focus downward. So, I put some fluffy trim around the top and pow, the eye is drawn upward and straight into Bob's toothy grin like it should be.

I am quite happy with La Petite Bob.

Bob took 3rd place in my division at the competition I entered him into, netting me $100 for spending however long huffing all that glue! Yeah!
