I thought I would have another post up earlier this week, but I just couldn't get my fingers out of the clay except to have a paint brush in my hand to put some paint on a couple of the following WIPs. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to sculpt, and that is why it is always a good idea for me to have some dried figures to paint on when those days hit. Yesterday, I covered 22 egg shaped paper mache forms (18 small and 22 medium...one of the eggs is on my table getting it's wire hanger attached in case you are counting and find one missing in the photo.)
I have a new witch started, a new vampire figure (short and round), a pumpkin head boy with an over sized head, a skelly and a new "witchy-poo" figure with the face and body on one form with long hanging arms (she has little bat wings too). Below is the first gourd container I have made. I started it a month ago and put paint on it this week just to see if it was working for me, so it isn't completed in paint yet and it also needs a handle.
And then there was my surprise this week!!!! That little Sonia of The Dark Ravens Nest sent me the adorably wrapped gifts she had made me (below). The little "finger" box (it has the hole cut in the bottom for you to put your finger through to scare little ones when you open it...my great-nephews will love this when I show it to them!!!) with a lovely little angelic face on top, and then if that wasn't enough she sent me one of her sculpted black sheep (very appropriate for me). Both of these items came in a really cute carry-out style box covered with lots of purses and shoes that has a cute quote, "You can never have too many purses or girlfriends." Not a bad philosophy!! THANK YOU Sonia!!!!
Hope you all had a joyous and productive week !
