Making faces. …

I cant think of a better name for this post. I am, really, making faces… 🙂 😛

Chinese painted face on a building

Was on my way to the lawyers’ office in Maxwell Road, near Chinatown, and saw this painted face on a building. It certainly was super eye-catching! Just grabbed me. That one did. Then I thought this was a great idea for making decals. … for laptops! Among other things..

Peking opera face

Blue! Chinese painted faces.

Doug thought its material for nightmares… HAH! They do kinda look fierce… but I like the colors. And the colors do have meaning… according to my google research.. Blues and Greens are usually righteous rebellious charactors, Reds are justice and authority, Whites are comedians or lesser roles, Yellow are for Royalty. .. Something like that…

Making faces!

My assembly plant. 1st, cut the different colors and the clear. Then, use a transfer tape to lift the clear off the backing, align carefully onto the face color, ie blue. Then lift off clear with the blue, and align carefully onto the black. Finally, lift off clear with blue and black, align carefully onto the red.

Ta Da! My rebellious Blue face is done!

The more traditional colors... red and blue, chinese opera faces

Ok, repeat the same for Red and Yellow. I make a dozen in an hour… 🙂

Opps, 1 yellow is misaligned! Can never be to careful about alignment! A little bit off and it really shows!

Peking opera faces

Yellow! Drats! One of them is misaligned!

So! What d’ ya think? Too much work for these ugly looking things? Yeah, they are not pretty, just damn fascinating … me thinks.

.. Now I need to find a laptop to put this on..
