Day 45: Tape

Title: Masking Tape Mummy
Assignment: Create an image with masking tape or any other kind of tape. Try making it on a nontraditional surface.
Materials: Masking tape, Bob the model, acrylics, sculpie, blackboard for background. Natural light and PS for blending two shots.

Inspiration: Hammer's THE MUMMY - I loved the movie and hearing Chris Lee's commentary about how the film nearly killed him. You can certainly see the pain in his eyes, as that was about all he could act with after being mummified.

I started by wrapping Bob in saran wrap to protect him, then I sharpied a little section for his eyes and wrapped him in masking tape, then gave him eyes made out of sculpie. I started off with some shots and the afternoon sun giving Bob a great Nosferatu-ish shadow, but realized after that his wrappings were whiting out the shot. By the time I'd applied some moldy paint color, the sun had gone. So I blended two shots together, as you can see.
