The skull is made of resin, a charity shop find, and sits in a lovely glass dome from Sainsburys. With the addition of my pestle and mortar, a couple of mushroom from the fridge and a rabbit skull my son found the scene is complete.
The Arsenic bottle is filled with Ice Diamond Flowersoft, there's not much left so look out! The skull and cross bones came from a necklace I found last year in a sale, he's stuck on to a hessian square that is wrapped around the top and tied off with black ribbon. The large jar is labelled Baby Dragon Scales, I tried a few things but the best one was beech nut cases. They are velvet smooth on the inside and prickly on the outside but they don't take paint well, brush or spray, so they've been left natural.
The bottles came from a lucky boot sale find but the jars were food stuffs I had to eat to get the jar. The bottles have a greenish tint to them so I wanted jars that were a bit that way too, I think they look older.
The labels were free digis from Primcats blog, lots to choose from and of course being digis you can print them whatever size you need.
I'm still working on a few other jars and bottles, I had a great shopping trip this week collecting glow-in-the-dark items so I'll pop back and show you what we've made nearer to Halloween.
