OK, I forgot how shitty youtube was with there picture quality. It's hard as hell to even read what I wrote... SO... Conder the Video for fun... The song that is playing during the video, (WAS) a local band from around here, and the Drummer is one of my best friends. I work with him at my job. The band has crashed nce then, but this was around 2002-2004 when they were still together and the song is called "Not Afraid To Cry". I love it!
Anyway, Due to the piss poor quality that youtube offers, I have posted pictures BELOW the video!
and at the end I have a Comparrison photo of the before and after effects of his suite!
PLEASE State your opinions even if you do not like how it is done!!!
Then with the guidence of a Model Knife and a Pair of ssors I atempted to make the suite look as though it had been dry rotted from 20 yrs. underground.
In our Kitchen nk I mixed a batch of Muddy looking acyric paint in with Luke warm water and soaked the shirt in it for about 15 minutes to give it a base color of a all over dingy stain.
After that I dried it with a blow dryer to prevent any stains in the dryer. By drying this, it alowed for the stain to set up in the shirt. I then washed the complete suite together in the Washer followed by drying it in the dryer. On this was done, I cut the suite top in half, but still alowed enough left over to tuck under the base of the bust.
Now it was time to detail this peice ung acrlic Paints to make this thing look like it is Fresh From The Grave!!! I had my Girlfriend Jill play a roll in this by mixing me a pile of differant shades of brown and green for the moldy look. I figured if he has mold, moss and weeds comming from his face, His outfit must be a little moldy at least right? Unfortunatly you cannot see any clear shots of Nathan Grantham in the film, but the stills you can see, alow you to carry out an act for imagination
Finally the finished pictures of this piece. I had also added a Very Muddy look to the suite coat itself!!! I feel it has that Very Old Rotted, Graveyardish feel to it. I'm Very Pleased with the results to this! I'll let these photos Speak for themselves
What the hell good would all of this have been if I didn't Include a Before and After Picture???
