This is a great thing to scare your friends and family with. Baisically it is a spirit trying to escape from your wall.
~ 2x3- foot birch 1/2- inch plywood panel ( i used something bigger you could use whatever u want but this measurement is just a suggestion because u could also put it into a book case)
~ Plastic Mask
~ Manicure plastic hand or manikin hand
~ Craft Glue (I used gorilla glue)
~ Celluclay paper- mache
~ Spreader (I used my fingers)
~ Sandpaper (It doesn't matter what grade it is)
~ Latex paint
Step 1: Finding the items u need
In order to find the mask that is easy go to Michaels crafts or a craft store or a costume shop. the manicure practice hand can be found at sally's beauty supply or a beauty supply store like that but if u would like to use a mainkin hand ( which is harder to find) ask around at a clothing store. The wood can be found at your local hardware store or lumber yard. The Celluclay can be found at a craft store i used the powdery block but i suggest the paper sheets it is easier because what i used was way to messy. and it wasn't as smooth.
Step 2: Measurements
If u are using a bookshelf, measure the bookshelf to make the plywood as the same size.
But if u are using it free floating than whatever size u want is fine.
Step 3: Making it to hang up on the wall
Put the picture frame hangers on the back of the plywood before you start ( i was stupid and did it last)
Step 4: Removing the back of the hand
I found that trying to use a bread knife is dangerous so i melted it down on a hot pan then sanding down the rest with a power sander worked best.
Step 5: Placement
Place the mask on the board about center then put the hand next to it a bit lower than the mask on an angle should work best. Face the palm out to make it look as if it is reaching out to you.
