What I Used:
– Wooden Clock, Clock Numbers, 3/4 inch Clock Hands & Quartz Crystal (All from Michaels)
– E6000 Glue
– Print Out of Logo (**MIRROR** Image)
– Sheet of Tracing Paper
– Charcoal Pencil
With the charcoal pencil, I traced the skull’s outline onto tracing paper. I didn’t worry too much about the little details, and I decided to forgo the text. When wood burning an image like this, I opted for a simpler, bolder look. Just to get the main point across!
Next, I laid the tracing paper onto the wood, charcoal side down. I used the pre-cut center hole as a guide.
Using the charcoal pencil, I scribbled across the entire image on the non-charcoal side. I added some pressure to ensure that the charcoal would transfer onto the wood.
When I lifted the paper away, this image was left on the wood – enough to give me a guide of where to wood burn.
I also can’t share all of this without mentioning how awesome the guys’ vinyl release is. Dan Marter of intheclouds has a knack for creating one-of-a-kind records featuring interesting concepts and packaging. Ghost House’s record is wrapped in true DIY style (hand printed, hand screened, all that good stuff). In the past, he’s also made touch sensitive vinyl that reacts to body heat, and playable pianos in jacket sleeves.
