Vampire Hunter

This scan of a vintage tintype is part of the vampire project I mentioned yesterday. I've left the original outline intact to serve as a trimming guide.

You can create a reproduction tintype by printing photographs on clear decal sheets (available at office supply stores) and then applying them to aluminum flashing from your local home supply store. A less involved method is to have the photograph developed normally, glue it to flashing using a spray adhesive, and then trim to size.
