Note: Plan ahead by washing and drying the figurines thoroughly. It may be necessary to use an old toothbrush to get the dirt, dust and grime out of the crevices of the figurines. After wiping down or washing the figurine, let it dry completely, preferably overnight.
You may also want to add a bit of felt to the bottom of the figurines so they don’t scratch the surface. Simply cut a small piece of felt a little bit smaller than the bottom/base of the figurine and attach with hot glue.
Directions to create creepy figurines
Protect a flat surface with wax paper or newspaper.
Paint the figurines with acrylic paint.
Let dry completely, two coats may be necessary.
Use puffy paint to paint red eyes onto the figurines.
