The Spider Witch’s Hat, and Mr. Moon all are ready to go. I am still working on my Creepy Clown’s hair and then he will be complete. I will do better photos to post for sale but wanted you to get the first peek. Let me know what you think.
Now that back to school stuff is finally settling, I am back to concentrating on my next haunting experience. Making Jack o Lanterns, Witch Hats, Haunted Houses, etc. all day and night. Share your favorite part of Halloween….
The leaf was a fascinating project. I wanted to make a dead leaf. So I took wire and taped cardboard to it. I cut out shapes of cardboard that matched each part of the leaf. I then used a wire to position it like it was crumbling in on itself. Then I applied layers of paper mache clay to resemble more of the folds and grooves of the leaf. I had to be careful to make sure every seam and edge were sealed with clay. Then after it set for a week with each layer applied, I painted it with various colors to resemble a dead leaf and shadows from the folds. Then it was sealed and applied to the pumpkin.
I really enjoyed this little addition. Just might repeat it.
Another character developing is a vampire pumpkin. His name has not come to me yet. I am still working on his eyes, details, and if I want a hat of some sort. Colors are definitely black and white, with a little blood of course.
Feel free to share ideas and keep check on the progress.
Well one of the pumpkins is now taking shape. I am seeing a creepy clown develop. I am now fine tuning colors and a neat hat. I was quite tickled at how he developed. I love the nose, crazy teeth, and I have some bizarre ideas for the eye. The wink was a last minute thought, but worked out nicely. I think I am going to let him be a orange pumpkin, and the face will be a light orange. Also, I haven’t come up with his name yet. We will see.
Feel free to leave ideas and check in periodically on the progress.
