My First Witch

Hey everybody, can you guess who is peeking beside the candle in the dark dark night. She is a famous witch, who I based her on the real life picture.

Right here looks like a crime scene.

Her hair is made from Lancaster wool and her head, feet and arms are made with polymer clay and painted with acrylic paints.

Here her hand looks like it's alive and wants to tell you hello.

I plan on sewing her body and her outfit tomorrow. I will post as soon as I get done with my beauty. I hope you like her.

This final pic was with no trickery and sort of looks freaky to me. I love it.
Pleasant Dreams,

Only 3 Months Till Halloween

I have been in the crafty mood lately and all I want to do is craft something spooky and try something new. I have been doing alot of research on Polymer Clay dolls. I have been looking at my fav blogs and getting inspiration from polymer clay and air dry clay artist especially the spooky ones.

My husband thinks I am morbid but I have always had a fascination with ghost, hauntings, scary movies and vampires. So I think it would be wise to make things you love and also the occasional historic character.

I went to Hobby Lobby and found a large thing of FIMO clay. It was $18.99 for a large block, but I was short on money so I bought this small block instead. I have heard good things about this clay so tell me, what is your favorite polymer clay to work with. I would love to know!!!!

This is what I bought instead. It only cost $11.99. Also let me know where you get your clays and for how much. All this will help me out so much.

Next I bought this small block of Premo. I want to try this one out also. Also sorry for the bad pictures. My camera is going bad and I have to get me a new one asap.

Before I got the above clays I had bought some sculpy clay and played around with it a little. I really have to practice on my faces.

Here is Marley the ghost with his pumpkin Jack. I think he turned out so cute for my first time. My dad said he looks like E.T. Hey that ok with me!! I love E.T.

I am going to start painting my babies very soon and when I get done I will post my after pictures.

Also the Dark Artist Guild Blog is have a giveaway until August 7th I believe, so go check it out Each of the artist are having a giveaway too. Go get some spookys right now, you don't want to miss out on the fun!!!
