Why be regular Snow White when you can be poisoned Snow White? Minus the sleeping death, add sickly makeup. I know what you’re thinking, “What good is that costume without a poison apple?!” My thoughts exactly. Here’s Disney’s version:
And here’s mine!
Step 1: Gather materials.
-fake apple, $3 at Michaels
-green fabric paint, $4 at Michaels (definitely could have gone with the smaller, cheaper bottle)
-green glitter, not sure of the cost ’cause I found this for freeeeee
-twine, also already had this
-Elmer’s glue (probably don’t need this, see step 4)
-tid bit of water
Step 2: With the felt pen, draw an outline of the eyes and nose holes.
Step 3: Set out paper towels so you don’t ruin your table. Trace the outline with the fabric glue. Let this set for 5-10 minutes.
Step 4: So my goal here was to just start piling on the fabric paint and letting it drip down. What I did not realize is that the fabric paint is so thick that even in large amounts it stays put (I guess that’s good news for other projects though). This is when I grabbed a dish and mixed the paint with some water. You only need a few drops of water per teaspoon of paint. I accidentally put too much water and had to drain it. Then I added some Elmer’s glue – I honestly don’t know my reasoning behind this. Maybe I thought it would help bind the water and paint? Who knows, I never took physics. The mixture I ended up with actually worked out.
Dip the paintbrush in the “slime mixture.” Don’t be afraid to get a generous amount. Start dabbing the top of the apple with the brush and let the mixture drip down the sides. The outline created in step 3 should prevent the mixture from dripping into the eyes and nose holes.
Step 5: Every now and then I turned the apple upside down just so the paint wouldn’t cover up the entire apple.
Optional: Before going glitter crazy, let the apple dry overnight. Once dry, remake the slime mixture and repeat step 4 to get another layer of drippy slime. This will add more texture and look more like the Disney version. NOW time for glittering!
Step 7: GLITTER TIME! This step was a suggestion from Brit. It’s totally optional. But if you have a chance to glitter something, I don’t see why that should be passed up. I didn’t want the glitter to cover all the slime (but if you do, don’t waste money on green fabric paint since you’re not going to see it anyway. Elmer’s glue should do the trick). So, I poured glitter just on the very top of the apple. Then I grabbed it at the stem and shook it a little so the excess would trickle down the rest of the slime.
