Artsy Wednesday: A Clockwork Orange

This Wednesday's theme is inspired by a movie. I decided to use A Clockwork Orange, one of my favourite books and movies!


In the movie, the main character, Alex, wears a bowler hat and heavier eyeliner under his right eye. Bart Simpson dressed up as him one Halloween :)


I used Sally Hansen Sun Kissed for the orange base, and ulta3 White Lily and Black Satin for the design. I freehanded the hat and eye, and used tape for the stripes.

    1. You should post it - practice makes perfect :)

      Yes I did! I've put it up now, on the right above the Artsy Wednesday picture - sorry it took so long, I'm rubbish with editing my layout!

    2. Aw thank you! Don't worry I was just checking that it'd had got to you ok :) Out of curiosity - how do you manage your left hand? or whichever you don't write with :)

    3. I'm used to it now, with all the practice! :P It also helps to rest my wrists on a table or my knees when I do it, and the cleanup brush is a lifesaver!

    1. Yes - I actually read the book before I watched the movie, I think I prefer it! But then again, I have a short attention span and usually can't stay awake during movies :(
