Step 1: Get cheap craft paint ‘n brushes. I added dish soap to the paint to make it easier to wipe off later.
Step 2: Make sure you have adult supervision.
Step 3: Outlines! I traced around a cup and a bowl to make the eyes.
Step 4: Get high on paint fumes while filling everything in. Looks a bit like abstract art at this point.
Step 5: Now we’re getting scary.
Step 6: Add the eyes and put on a second coat of paint. The mouth on the lower left still hasn’t had a second coat, for comparison.
Step 7: Resolve to take a long shower afterwards.
It only looks mildly unsettling during the daytime, but at night with the light shining out… nightmare fuel! I’m so happy with it, hahaha.
