The Frame That Drips Blood!


Final yr I acquired the prospect to satisfy somebody I’ve needed to satisfy since I used to be a child, Tom Savini. He’s a pioneer in particular results make-up an a legend within the horror group. I’ve saved all my problems with Fangoria Journal through the years and requested Tom to signal this one from 1984 the place he talks about his work on Friday the thirteenth, The Last Chapter.

Me and Tom Savini!

I’ve made numerous themed image frames through the years and that is certainly one of my favorites, plus I lastly discovered a use for one in every of my picket Jason machetes I made a number of years in the past. Not solely that, this body impressed me to construct a brand new private weblog, My Film Morgue dedicated to films I really like. Test it out!

Making the body was tremendous easy: simply two primary frames with the identical outer dimensions, however the rear body has narrower items. When these are sandwiched collectively, they create a rabbet for the paintings to drop into.

I clamped one body to my workbench and routed out a slot for my picket machete to hack into and a slot alongside the underside for the blood to drip.

Utilizing a template, I used my jigsaw to cut out the dripping blood in 1/eight″ plywood. And sanded it clean.

After gluing the fram collectively and marking it, I hacked up the sting to make it appear to be Jason wasn’t a fan of this body!

I cut out a matte for the paintings in a bit of froth core board, spray painted it black and taped the journal into place.

Lastly, I cut out a bit of acrylic (Plexiglass) and mounted every little thing within the body.

Individuals all the time ask me about this level driver. In case you make a whole lot of frames, this factor is tremendous useful!
