Fangs for the Jar

 Hello... today I am linking to SanDee and Amelies Steampunk challenge where the theme this month is top hats and moustaches and I really fancied getting my teeth into this one!

I recycled a small John West Jar (which husband thought I could make use of) which was very shallow and my teeth fitted snuggly in it. Well not my own teeth of course as that might make me a vampire - I had a lovely box of various teeth like this given to me several years back for a laugh - I knew they'd be useful one day. 

I used fun foam with all the dies as that gives nice depth and is really useful when the dies are not suitable for cutting heavier/thicker card etc. 
Used various acrylic paints, inks and some metallic wax.

Fangs for stopping by!

  1. Oh my, this is such fun. Love your man with the top hat and moustache, and his lovely rusty bits! And those teeth gave me a great laugh, which was much needed, thanks! Glad to hear they are not your teeth, I might have advised you to change your dentist....I am being good and am in bed resting! Have a nice evening, Hugs, Valerie
