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. 
Hey, if you got this idea from http://www.bhg.com/holidays/halloween/indoor-decorating/ghosts-in-the-bookcase-halloween-project/, it would be nice to give credit.
Definitely seems that way at least...
<p>I would love to do this but with latex (like suggested below), follow-me eyes (from stuffed animals/fursuits), and in my own wall (since I have a fair amount of wall-space). Maybe do something like this...?</p>
wow could you use the wood hands that are possablie so it can look like he is trapped a lilltle more
thz 4 yr sharin xD<br>
i did get it from there and i kind of modified it but it is better the way they did it<br>
so cool!
NIce Instructable...I believe one of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies had this effect in the movie.
This is from a movie, isn't it? what's the name of the movie? By the way, great instructable
Been thinking along the same lines, but to use latex instead of the celluclay.<br>That way you could hve a mechanical movement of the hand and head or lips as well, maybe some glowies behind the eyes as well....
That turned out GREAT ! Ive never seen celluclay but then I haven't really been looking for a product like it but it seems to have a nice moldability, whats it like when it drys? is it hard like plaster or more like plastic? is it water resistent? How heavy is it when dry? Meaning is it heavier than it looks or lighter ?
it is more like paper mache it dries very papery and light
Great ible realy creative looks great on the wall, though I dont know if Han Solo will be too enthusiastic ..Lol
that would be a great idea but it may take forever to do
Very effective- cool idea!
Did anyone else think that this would make a great Solo in carbonite? or is it just me?
That was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw it.
good call but i'd mold my own face if i was doing that
Very Very Cool!!
that's really cool! nice job.
whoa, with some lighting that could be very cool for a haunted house. <br>yikes!
yea i was thinking the same thing
Nice effect! I might try this when I get some wall space, and keep it up<em> all </em><br> &nbsp;year.
