IKE's Art Giger Tribute ATCs

Hi all

As you are probably aware i am a huge Aliens fan, so i wanted to create something that was a bit reminiscent af H. G Giger the artists behind the original Aliens movies. I used the Giger Tribute stamp from IKE's Art and took it from there.

I am playing along with 

I painted a ATC blank with black acrylic paint and used the Short Circuit stencil with modeling paste to create the background.

I then cut up a plastic skeleton and painted it with white gesso and then with black paint. I dry brushed silver metallic paint over the embossed areas and bones.

I used a mould to create the face and facehugger. I used modeling paste in a skeleton hand mold let it set over 24 hrs and then i cut the middle finger off and glued it to the back to make the tail before painting it all in flesh and gluing it to the face.

I used the spine part of the Giger Tribute stamp.

The next ATC was created by painting Texture Sand Paste over the ATC first and then painting it black once dry. I  then added a stencil to a section of the background and painted over the top with silver paint which gave it a weird gooey look.

The creature was created out of air hardening clay and i panted the face with a paint mix of bale blue and pale grey. I just experimented with the amount until i got this deathly pale look. I used clay to create the spine like hair and added a skeletal hand over the face to compete the look. I painted the whole thing black and then rubbed Silver Spark Metallic lustre over the top.

For this ATC i used twxture sand paste on the base and then drywall tape, Painted it all in black and the applied the  Snakes Web stencil over the top and painted it black. I then added the short circuit stencil to one section of the ATC and dry brushed the whole base with Silver Spark Metallic Lustre.

I coloured in the Giger Tribute stamp and cut it up and placed the main body in  the corner of the ATC. The Arms i made using paper clay and i just rolled out some long thin sausages. The hand are the skeleton hands which i attached to the appendages and painted black. The Face was made with a mold and painted with a blue and grey paint mixture.

  6. Great set of ATCs with loads of textural interest going on! I think the one with the face hugger is my favourite, love the way you've used the skeleton hand on that one. Thanks for joining us at Daring Cardmakers this week!

  7. Very clever, all of them. I guess even a skelton has to pick its nose from time to time! Thanks for sharing at Dream In Darkness.
