Yesterday morning, I wanted to wear something festive to Ada’s Technical Books’ Tolkien Reading Day, but I don’t really have any costumes. I did have a black shirt and some acrylic paint. I used an old yogurt box to separate the front of the shirt from the back of the shirt. This prevents the paint that seeps through to stick to the other side and then the table. With a paper bowl to help define the major circle in the Eye of Sauron. I used a string from a nearby tea bag to emphasize the flares of fire and lightning.
