Witch in a Shoe Pull Toy

This tiny Witch sits in a reproduction high top antique shoe. Her head and hands are

sculpted from puppen fimo with hand made eyes and gray mohair for hair. She is dressed
in a cotton fabric with a silk collar and antique black jet beaded belt. Her felt hat is trimmed in
silk, feathers, antique jet beads and antique black lace.

Her pull toy is decorated with the same fabric as her costume. The pull toy measures 4"x 2" and is 10" tall from the tip of her hat to the wheels.

This OOAK piece can be found  for sale at the  Queen's Castle Bootique

Holiday March completed

"Holiday March" is finally completed and consists of three figures marching with their musical instruments. The leader is a 7" Elf followed by a 6" Pumpkin Head and a 5" Snowman. They are all sculpted out of Creative paper clay, an air dry clay. Using a technique taught by Jean Bernard, I covered them with kleenex that had been colored with acrylic paint and sealed them with 3 coats of matte varnish. They march on a base that has been covered with antique sheet music and crackled for that warm patina. All figures can be removed for shipping. This is a OOAK piece never to be created again.  This bunch  left me and moved to their new home.
