Zeelon Ghosts for Halloween
These ghostly apparitions were made using Zeelon Light – an ideal fabric for this type of project as it is translucent and beautifully sheer.
We began by dipping strips of Zeelon Light in a diluted solution of PVA glue, before draping them over a proforma, made up of a plastic bottle, a small ball for the head and garden wire arms.
To give extra height to our ghost, we stood the model on a couple of paint tins.
We applied the Zeelon strips all over the proforma until it was completely covered and left the glue to dry. To achieve a more bedraggled, torn appearance, we used a soldering iron to melt and distress the loose ends.
After removing our ghost from its stand, we used the soldering iron to form two eye sockets and a mouth. We then positioned some paper (coloured with red and black ink), behind the charred eye sockets to give the appearance of a pair of very blurry blood shot eyes!
