The One with the Fake Finger Reminders are Coming Along


Tuesday, September 20, 2011

I've sent out the e-vite for Fox's 1st birthday/Halloween party, but to follow up I want to give out a special, one-of-a-kind, something you'll never forget reminder. These oughta do the trick:

Here are mine in progress:
Chris has access to molding stuff (I don't know the correct terminology...) at dental school so he set up a lab on our dining room table. Looks complicated!

He concocted an alien-green and blue paste like so:

Then I stuck my two forefingers into the slime and waited for it to harden after five minutes.

Then, over the period of a week, Chris would mix up a formula and pour it into the mold, wait a few hours for it to set, and then he'd pull out the fingers. We made 40 fingers total.

This afternoon Chris took them to school and sanded off all the rough edges. Then this evening I dipped them in an India ink wash and now they look super duper creepy.

The "coffins" have been die cut and assembled, the reminder info has been designed/printed/trimmed, and the moss has been installed:

So alls that's left to do is tie a black ribbon around each finger and drop them off to the guests!
