A. Dora Belle Wicked

I've been working in paper mache clay all week, which means my fingers have been covered in the white sticky material most of the day. I have found that it isn't a very good idea to try to use the computer keyboard while I'm sculpting  (I hate trying to pick hard little bits of clay out from under a key or space bar) so that is the reason for this weeks late posting. 

I had several of you ask to see the witches I completed last week so here is one of them.  This is A. Dora Belle Wicked, or Dora Belle for short.  Dora Belle is one of the Wicked sisters that displayed exemplary flying skills from a very early age and currently holds numerous cross-country speed records for brooms. 

Dora Belle's sisters all tell the story that Dora Belle first displayed her "need for speed" when she jumped on her mother's broom at the age of 10 months and sped off over the house.  Her sisters all recall her returning a short time later with a penguin she had picked up in Antarctica.  In no time Dora Belle was known for her quickness, establishing speed records in her neighborhood and never losing a local broom race.

Dora Belle is shown wearing her special night-flight hat and boots, her "Order of the Bat" pin at her neck and carrying her broom, Speedster. 

Hope you like her. Have a great weekend!

Gandolph Gourd

Work continues on building an inventory for Ghoutide Gathering.  I just finished Gandolph Gourd with his super sour Halloween sucker and mini-gourd friend.  If you take a look at Gandolph's teeth you will notice a few are missing.  Poor Gandolph has a terrible sweet tooth and unfortunately was never taught to brush or floss after eating.  (Some have even speculate that one of his missing teeth is actually his original sweet tooth! )

Gandolph got very excited when he was given this Halloween sucker and instantly took a big bite. Much to Gandolph's surprise the sucker wasn't sweet, but was a special super sour version of the familiar confection created by one of his witchy friends. 

I think there is a lesson to be learned by Gandolph...if the sucker has a slightly "sour" face, perhaps it isn't as sweet as you would hope. 

It was fun playing with this character.  Hope you like him!

Marcelo Moon

My goodness, someone slow down the clock, please!!  I can't believe it is July 7th, and it is time to update pieces on PFATT Marketplace for their unveiling on July 10.  I have just sent in my update for the month and I will have one offering, Marcelo Moon, seen below.  UPDATE...Marcelo is SOLD.  Thank you!!

Marcelo is a little celestial being that is in love with much so that he descends from the skies to trick or treat for goodies on Halloween night.  He always comes in costume, including his celestial top hat, shorts and boots, plus carrying his favorite treat bucket that has a portrait of himself in his youth on the front.

He is painted in gold and orange hues (except for his green eyes) so his color will fit in nicely with any Halloween collection.  He will come signed, dated and numbered and is a one-of-a-kind original from my studio.

This piece will be released for sale on Sunday, July 10, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time, on PFATT Marketplace:

Hope you like him!!
