A spooky Halloween coffin that is very basic and easy to design. The spine-chilling eyes really stand out on the black Halloween casket.
The coffin or casket could also be made out of brown if you want more of a realistic looking containment of deceased remains. Use some Glassline paints to add the grains in the wood if desired.
The eyes could be cut out of yellow or green glass depending on the look you are wanting. I have used yellow because I like the way it pops against the black.

1. Trace and using scissors cut the guide.
2. Park the parts on the right tint glass and sketch close to the model with a permanent marker. Liberally plaster the traced design with beeswax or Chap Stick.
3. A glass saw is considered necessary to cut the shape. Cut close to the line to keep the outline and all the small details.
4. Bathe with soap and rinse in plain water or employ glass cleaner to get rid of all pen marks and scum. Using a lint free towel, dry the pieces.
5. Put together the portions on a prepared kiln shelf and arrange the shelf inside the unit. Be sure to hold the glass by the side to prevent fingerprints.
6. Shut the lid or access. Start the unit.
7. Look at the piece at close to 1325 degrees Fahrenheit. When glimpsing at your hot glass wear glasses with IR and UV protection.
8. As soon as the glass has your desired look, switch off and disconnect the unit. If the unit is made with dense fire bricks, you can allow it to cool down on its own. If however it is constructed with ceramic fiber, the unit must remain on and observed so that it doesn’t cool down any more than just about 300 degrees Fahrenheit per hour.
9. As soon as the pyrometer drops lower than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the oven may be opened.
10. After the piece has cooled to room temperature, you can add a brooch back. Hold on the brooch back with a two part epoxy.
