In addition to the doll I showed you yesterday, I'm going to use a rusted
I've had trouble drilling a hole in the top in which to insert the head,
but Fee managed to do it for me. The wood was really hard!
I've worked on the rough version of the head. It takes several days of working and molding the clay, letting it dry, adding more clay, letting it dry, carving, sanding, etc. to make a head. Hopefully, I will refine it in the next few days--but I had to try fitting it into the mixer to see how it would work!
I'm enjoying working with the eccentrics again!
I found this at MJ Ornaments--it made me chuckle.
And check out her Halloween charms here.
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and I usually make several Halloween dolls for the season. So it is time to get my Halloween fabrics out and start going through my vintage artifacts to see what eccentric creatures might emerge.
I saved some cute sayings from last year which might inspire some Eccentrics. I've done witches, pumpkins, tiny ornaments for the Halloween Tree, ghosts, and black cats before, but there are always new variations. I really need to finish the two I've just started first, though, and then I can move on to Halloween.
Ordered more of the Gonesh enriched incense from Spiritual Scents. In lavender, of course, because it is my favorite. This is unlike any incense I've ever tried; the Gonesh Enriched smells wonderful (which not all incense does) and the scent lingers.
