Halloween Pumpkin Head Artist

The Artist is a 9" figure completely sculpted from an air dry clay over a strong wire armature, painted with acrylics and sealed with a matte varnish. Her eyes are handmade by me and she holds a real paint brush. She sits on the base with the brass rod and tube method so she can be removed for shipping. The child's bust is sculpted from paper clay and sits on a wooden candle stick which can be removed from the base.

The base is wood covered with paper clay and apoxie clay,painted with acrylics and measures 4.5" X 2.5". The entire piece is 10" high.

She is on E-bay now and can be seen here:  The Auction is over and this figure has been sold.


  1. Oooh, Bonnie, she is just beautiful! I've just gotten back into using air dry clay, can't believe how much I've missed it! xo

  2. Thank you Zinnia; so glad you stopped by, good to hear from you.

    Valerie, thank you. I think once we use the air dry clay we always drift back to it. I love it for certain pieces.

  3. I am still so so heartbroken that I discovered this piece AFTER it had already went to auction and sold on eBay. This has got to be my all time favorite piece of yours. I am still so crushed over missing the auction. What a spectacular piece of art you've created. Love it, Bonne!!!! I haven't much time to get online over this past year compared to before and I miss it so. One day I'll be back in full swing.
    Hugs to you and hope all is well. Jody S.

  4. Thank you Jody....sorry you missed her....
