Anything Goes at Crafting from the Heart

This week’s Anything Goes challenge at Crafting from the Heart is just for fun.  Today’s project is a bit different.  My daughter wanted to be a purple dragon for Halloween.  We found a nice mask online but it’s only available in green or orange.  I bought the orange version with the plan to paint it.  Here is what the mask looked like when it arrived.  (Please excuse my disaster zone of a desk.  It got really messy after I hurt myself last year and while I’ve made some progress on cleaning it up, it’s still a terrible mess.)

The mask was so easy to paint!  Just use a fairly dry brush and start with the darkest color.  I left the black base and some of the orange/yellow showing because I thought that it made the mask more interesting.  Let each color dry and then move on to the next color.  I used silver on the upper horns and ears, gold around the eyes and nose and on the lower horns.  The teeth were a nasty yellow and I managed to get some purple paint on them, so a quick coat of ivory and they were better than the original.  By the way, if you are looking for a nice metallic paint try the DecoArt Dazzling Metallics.  I bought it for the Jedi food capsules that I made and it is the nicest metallic acrylic paint that I have tried.

What it looks like now.  My purple nut loves it!
