How to Make Vantas Horns

okay so as an apology for the last tutorial I made, I promised myself I’d make a real tutorial for making Karkat’s horns.  It is literally the easiest thing you will ever, ever do.  It’s easier than the clay mug you made your mom in 3rd grade for Mother’s Day but it ended up being an ashtray because the sides wouldn’t stay upright.  Seriously.  They’re that easy.

  1. Take two lumps of model magic and shape them into Karkat’s horns.  The lumps of clay should fit in the palm of your hand, no bigger, and they should be rolled into a shape somewhere between a cylinder and a cone - wider on the bottom and narrower on the top but not pointed.  Give them a slight curve as you see fit.  Ideally they will be mirror images of each other.
  2. Get some floral or copper wire that is thick enough to hold a shape but thin enough to bend with your hands and cut a length of between 4 and 6 inches.  Shape it into a widening spiral/coil, leaving a length of about .75 inches pointing straight up from the coil. Shove this end into the bottom of your horn so it looks like this (picture in link).
  3. Put the horns in a tupperware container with the edge of the lid cracked open and let them dry.  Give it at least 2 days and ideally a week.  You can also leave them to open-air dry but putting them in a container will make them less likely to crack as they dry.
  4. Coat the horns in modgepodge once they’ve dried.  It’s a nice primer and will help hide any small cracks that have appeared.
  5. Paint the horns with acrylic paint.  For the best gradient look, start with yellow, then add orange, then add red (the yellow in particular will always be overwhelmed by darker colors, so be careful). Let dry.

And viola!  Karkat horns. The wire spiral under the horns will let you literally screw them into the wefts of your wig, and you can secure them with a bobby pin to keep them from twisting.

Toldja it was easy.

Somebody asked:

Do you know why you have to seal your face paint makeup? I’m a bit confused why you need to.

Here’s why.

#OH MY GOSH #now the question is HOW do you seal? (via artsymaiya)

I’m so glad you asked!

There’s two products from Ben Nye specifically meant to seal costume and stage makeup:

Neutral Set is a powder that goes on white and turns colorless when spread over the makeup.  It will quickly dry your makeup and also provides a colorless layer of powdery protection between your makeup and everyone else’s costumes.  It also will help keep you from sweating your makeup off.

Baby powder can be used if you don’t want to spend money on neutral set, but unlike neutral set (which is odorless) you will smell like baby powder all day. :(

Final Seal is a spray that, as its name suggests, seals your makeup so that it is hard to even rub off.  It takes about 10 minutes to dry and is a bit expensive, but it only takes one spritz on any area of skin and it makes makeup stay in place for hours.  There is no cheaper alternative that I know of but it is worth the investment.

Final Seal in combination with Neutral Set is very effective at insuring none of your makeup will come off unless you work at it or get it really wet (for the most part, except for my palms, sweating did not take off my makeup when these things were combined).

And that is how you seal, friend.

Tooth has ten beautiful wings. Some people say her wings are like a dragonfly’s, but a dragonfly can move all four wings independently and cannot fold them. Tooth’s wings all move together and she can fold them, which makes them more like those of a damselfly. It’s a good job she can fold them else with her six foot wingspan she’d really struggle to collect the teeth!
