A Minion and a Half!

I have turned 2 of the ~{Straight Edged Small Arches}~ into minions.
 I was only going to show one of them because I had so much trouble with the second, but in the end I'm being brave! 


I painted the base colour with acrylic paint and then used some steel texture paste through the one of the circles in the ~{Random Circles Mask}~ and very carefully removed the centre of the paste. Once this was dry, I painted everything and did some doodling to get the right look.

The trouble started when I attempted to glue the nylon hair in place. It's actually part of a duster and, as you can see, it got everywhere. It didn't want to stick to the arch, but it certainly stuck to me and my desk. And my floor. And anything else with a slight electric charge to it. I gave up! It was meant to have much more hair on it so it was bushy like the proper evil minion and I was going to trim it up, but I'd had enough!! So excuse the fact that the hair is all wrong, but I did like his face!
