Dinner Nagini...

Well, I am slowly getting back into the sculpting saddle and thought I would show you how I start a head.  There is much scraping, smoothing, cleaning and filling in to do.

Voldemort, I made  him once before ages ago and decided to give him another go. I love Ralph Feinnes (sp) hes once of my fav actors.  I love Volemort  he has got to be one of the best bad guys ever. 

Heads like this take time, two to three days doing a little bit here and there. Its helpful to to a bit stand back and then do a bit more. 

My fingers have been very sore for a few months due to a reaction to something that caused my skin to peel hence my long absence.

I have ordered some silk for his robes which I feel need to be like a Kimono.  He will probably take a while longer to complete.  I want to get him right.

I have got lots to do and lots to finish off and now I have broken up for the holidays I hope to do so.

I have got some other Harry Potter characters coming I am just waiting for bits and pieces for them.

A Trip Down Memory Lane....

Firstly, warmest of welcomes to my new followers.  I know I have been quiet for a while. Life has been ooober busy and I am now finally finding some time to go into my workroom.  

A long time ago I made Potion Corner for my Wizards and Mad Scientists as a prop. I have been looking at it for a while and wondering who could take residence for a while, soon Cornelius Cricklebank brother of Abanathy who left a while ago.  He will make his appearance on Sunday fully finished (his head is shown above.

Ahhhh blasts from the past, brooches based on Brian Frouds work all gone many moons ago but I still have fond memories of them, Bynd, Tyg, Hap and many others. I will make more of them one day.

 I also have a love of textiles and I love vintage lace, below is a piece from my collection along with my pin pot and pin cushion... it used to be a salt cellar.
 Another little creation, vintage lens (I have a few), old keys (I have a few more of these) and an image taken from my vintage postcard collection.

 A little house non opening that I made from a kit, one day it will be a prop for my Wickle Witches.
 Ahhhh and toes, I have been making toes, there is something very theraputic about them LOL.

I have been making potion boards, new bottles and mushrooms.  Lots of goodies but I am not showing them just yet.  Not doing it to be mean, just being careful.

School finishes in two and half weeks for the summer, then its six glorious weeks of head down and making.
