As a group we decided to make our own Teenage Mutant Nija Turtle costumes for Halloween 2012. Making the tops and buying the ribbon were easy. However creating our shells was more tricky. After many different ideas using such things as a baking tray we decided to use a nibble platter dish and glued it to some green draw string bags.

Due to the material the paint wouldn’t stick on the platters, so to over come this problem I covered them in news paper and PVA glue. This made a great texture and held the paint well.
