Plaster Hands

Those wiggling, groping appendages at the end of your arms seem to have a life of their own, and the sight of other people's hands causes you to break out in a sweat. On Halloween, consider taking your fear in hand and making five-fingered candleholders and tabletop decorations. These are made of plaster and get a ghoulish gray cast from a brush with black gouache.

Chicken Costume

Why did the chicken cross the road? To go trick-or-treating, of course. This funny costume is made from two tickly feather boas, ordinary kitchen gloves, tights, and a pilot's cap that's crowned with a felt comb. Under the plumage, two leotards are stuffed with batting for extra plumpness.
