5 ft posters

I love finding ways to make props out of free stuff.  This year my big problem with the carnival is filling up dead yard space.  So to fix that I went to my local furniture stores and asked for their boxes.  They were more than happy to let me have as much as I wanted.  These make great "canvases" for some large clown paintings.  Here is how I did it...

Carnevil Entrance

I wanted to make a bold statement this year with our party entrance.  I decided to make a big clown face to attach over the entrance gate.  This clown was inspired by a Funhouse build by Keith Corcoran.  Check him out on YouTube.  It was painted onto two large 4' x 8' pieces of foam board from Lowes.
