Inspired by an old Halloween decoration I saw in a magazine as a kid I wanted to make a large moon face. Just over 20" I painted a thin wood round in homemade white chalk paint. I then added aqua glow in the dark paint ( I underestimated how much paint it would take & ran out hence the streakiness) I used paint markers for the face & craters. I haven’t decided if I want to distress it or not. It is hanging above my mantel. I had hoped to get it done before Halloween, but I think it can stay up anyway.
I actually quite like the streaky effect! I don’t think I’d have known it was unintentional, because it looks really cool.
It’s absolutely perfect! I also like the streaky effect
I third the streakiness… it might have been unintentional, but gives it a great look!
oh, you are all the best. You all sure made me feel better about the streakiness. Thank you!
You say streaky, I say textured.
Ooooh, I love the vintage look of the face. I’ll chime in with everyone else, saying that the streakiness actually just contributes to the vintage vibe.
So dang cool!
Oh wow! Love this! It is so fab!
I love the streaks its like a happy accident I’d keep it that way
This is amazing!
So many comments about how cool the streakiness is! The first thing that crossed my mind when I read what you said about that, was what everyone else said! Great minds think alike!
Your moon is awesome!
Well, lookie here! Your amazing craft is one of this week’s Featured Projects!
wow, thank you!
That looks so great. Honestly, the “streakiness” makes the project in my opinion. I don’t believe it would be as interesting without that accidental element. Great job with the face too, such personality!
