plague doctor is called Dr. Noir and is a digi specially drawn for this project by Rick St.dennis (thanks Boss, you are the best !!). The skulls are stamped in the modeling past (nightmares.....the paste has to be dry enough to not be too sticky but not too dry so it won't get the impression of the stamp. This is take 2, take 1 desperately failed, which is my fault cuz I have been warned to practise on a test piece first, but I am just too impatient so I just jumped in with the real thing lol). The skull stamp is from the Morte set designed by Rick St.dennis and sold by Smeared Ink but no longer available since they went out of business. The Tryptich is MDF and bought at a dutch store called Action (sorta like a dollar store kind of store), it came with all kinds of cute decoupage images that I threw away immediately, cuz who wants a cute cats and roses and a home sweet home tryptich .....This just screamed to be turned into somethng scary.
here you will find videos how to use Deco Art Media products to get a simular effect.
For the frame and hinges that are on the back of the Triptych I used Tim Holtz alterations dies and cardboard/ cardstock. If you look closely you will see the same skull stamp that has been pressed in the modeling paste, stamped on the crackled background behind the mask.
The mask was bought on my trip to Venice last year, I am facinated by the Plague masks you find there on evere street ( or canal ) corner, but I could not take a big one on the plane with me. So I bought 2 fridge magnet plague masks with the idea to use them in my craft projects someday :-)
And because I was inspred by the shrines you find in Venice I thought this was the perfect match, I just had to age it a bit and get rid of the gold and glitter. So I sanded it and gessoed it. next painted it Antique white and added crackle glaze and antiquing cream.
