Baba Yaga Bust, warning this is not a Miniaure.. LOL

I know I mainly make miniatures but I sometimes forget that I like making other things too.  I had a block of cernit that I didnt get on with so I made an armature from silver foil and paper and cracked on with this.

I dont really like cernit, its sticky and hasnt got the movement in it that I like but it does hold its shape and I really like the way the clay fires and takes colour.  I think its better for larger pieces rather than small ones.

She went together like a dream no fuss, no fighting either LOL

Her hair is combed out fleece with conditioner left in to make it look greasy.  I have a large bag of this stuff but I have to comb out the locks with detangler before I can use it.

Vintage Victorian button and antique lace.

Teeth and a hairy wart.

Hand in situ to give an indication of size.  The bowl you can see was one of  hundreds that I made at university when doing my degree.

 A shot of our newly decorated bedroom. The chest has lots of printing blocks in it.

A little distressed bell ornament I brought on holiday and a ragdoll fairy I made years ago.

A new enamel shabby candle holder with lavender sitting on vintage/antique lace.

My victorian flat iron and a bunch of faux keys.

The glass soda syphon my Dad dug up out of a garden years ago. My old singer sewing maching and a reproduction Victorian bed cap.

So far this half term holiday, one decorated bedroom, one holiday (3 days in Wales) and one new sculpt. 

I have also got into Miniatura for September so I am going to start making stock the weekend.

No rush then.

Etsy Listings and new pics

Hi, I hope you are all having a lovely Easter.  I have been busy and spent all day listing goodies on Etsy and it takes a looooooooong time.  I dont just make miniatures and over the coming weeks I will also be listing altered art jewellery and brooches.

One of the prams (not listed yet as there is a que for these).

A mandrake potting table.

When a house elf dies its owner mounts its head on the wall to remind the new house elf that it has to work hard and do as its told.

I love making mushrooms its very theraputic.

A little dragon with poseable wings. I had an epiphany about those wings and the same technique is also good for bats (I have some of those on my work table nearly finished).  I have been making dragons for years on and off and I have to be in the mood to do so. I know a lot of people make dragons, the same as dolls and there is room for everybody, so I will be making more.

Thats it for now more to come very soon.

Lots of luffies
