For Amy, I used the yellow, red and blue wash technique over a base coat of light flesh. The eye makeup was pretty simple with black as the main component
and off white color around the perimeter of each eye. I went with burnt sienna for her hair which I very lightly streaked with light gray and a bit of metallic white. I cheated on the eyes themselves by using 8mm orange doll eyes.
I painted the house a weathered maroon with dark brown trim and dark gray for the roof. The surrounding foliage was done in various shades of green to
help distinguish the trees from the other shrubs and grass.
For the ghostly effect surrounding Amy's head, I started with a base
coat of flat white. I then came back with sky blue that I dry brushed over the whole swirling surface. Once this dried, I dry brushed the entire area with medium gray followed by metallic pearl white.
Finally, I oozed globs of clear adhesive around her mouth and chin to give a slathering effect similar to what was seen in the film after Amy fully “turns”. This is a very nice
bust (despite its price) and would look good in any collection even if left unpainted. 10/02/22
