2 Painted Spooks and Father Christmas

I am painting like crazy and still feel like a snail. I have managed to complete the two little spooks below, "Mad Hatter Skelly" and "Hocus Pocus Skelly" for the STJ update. Both figures ended up in Halloween paint, but the magician figure is a first for me so I still did something new for my figures. I still want to paint a "Hallomas" (Chris Klinger word) Skelly so it is on my "to do" list.


The two make a nice look together...similar, yet very different.


Full figures with bases.


Detail of Hocus Pocus Skelly...he does like his jewelry and border trimmed attire.

I painted his bucket to match his outfit!! Diva Skelly...HA!!


Mad Hatter Skelly has a lovely bat bow tie and some long spindly fingers.

Father Christmas has his first layer of stain on the paint, but I still have hours of work to do on his base and lower torso. He is getting there though. I mixed a new blue last night for his eyes and I'm liking the icy shade that came out.


That is what I have been up to and I need to get back to work on other pieces so we will talk to you after the 10th!!!! Very busy, as I know you all are this time of year!!!

Don't forget we update our SpookyTime Jingles pages on the 13th!!! Still time for a little treasure in your stocking!

Happy Creating and have a great day...snow here!!
