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.

Your creativity is fabulous! Love Baba Yaga...she was always the creepiest witch in the story books.
You definitely captured her charming evilness. 'Yes, my pretties! Come this way...I won't hurt you!'
