Was that blood on the ground? I recognized the street. I was a few miles from from home. I waited at the nearby bus stop for what felt like forever. Bus didn't come. I started to walk toward home. There were cars stopped in the middle of the street. Like time had frozen. I didn't see a soul. Not even a squirrel. I approached my street and could see my house. I could tell the front door was open. The cat could get out. Must have been my daughter. I tell her to keep the front door closed all the time so the cat doesn't get out. I arrived to the front steps and started to make my way up. There was movement in the flowers. Rustling. Must be a bird, I thought. First one I saw all day. But it was no bird.
Dozens of them. Lumbering around almost aimlessly. Some covered in tiny amounts of blood. Some missing tiny limbs. There was one was taking a tiny bite out of another.
This Instructable will show you how to transform an ordinary ceramic garden gnome into a tiny mindless flesh-eating backyard horror.
Step 1: Materials and Supplies
"Bondo" auto body filler
- Bondo hardener (normally this is included in your Bondo purchase)
- small mixing cup (like a cleaned-out yogurt container
- Popsicle stick to mix the Bondo
- Outdoor adhesive
Acrylic craft paint. There are a few specific colors that are needed:
- Caucasian flesh tone (or your preference)
- Blood red... this is key. You need a good looking red for the blood. And blood's the only thing it should be used for; if you want your Gnombie to have a red hat, for example, use a different shade of red.
- Various other colors for clothing and stuff
- Acrylic crackle medium. It's found along with the craft paints
- Craft paint brushes
- Clear spray sealer. Clear enamel spray paint will work great.
