Skelly Belly Unveiling

Here he is....oops, I need to get his attention so he'll turn around and look at you....note his back center panel of his torso and the scene on the back of the base. This is one of the reasons why it takes me so long to get these things done!!

Let me introduce Skelly Belly III. He is quite a change from my long legged versions, but now that I am worrying about possibly shipping the pieces I'm thinking in terms of smaller might be better. (Wonder if I will like my things smaller?) This figure is still 13" tall to the tip of his hat.

Here he is in full view with a papier mache hat (thank you dear husband for my new belt sander that lets me make them with a nice sharp point!!), variegated rafia collar, raised skull buttons, relief arms and hands, and a wood base I'm trying out on 4 new pieces. He has his hands on his belly rubbing it because he was a pig and ate ordinary yard bugs on the 4th of July !!

Go ahead, give him a smooch!!!

Above are 2 close ups of the grave yard scene that surrounds the base and you can just see the edge of the cork bottom I put on to keep the figure from scratching a tabletop.

That's it, you'll see him next on SpookyTime Jingles, July 13!! :) Laurie
