He is made with layers and layers of paperclay, his arms and the bats are polymer clay and he is painted with layers of acrylics and pastels. His sweater is handstitched from a recycled sock. When I found his tumbstone in a halloween shop, I knew it was the perfect final touch! He is available in my Etsy shop. Feel free to visit.

This is my latest. "The Gatekeeper" He is a freestanding paperclay figure approximately 10 inches tall, with polymer hands, boots and lantern. I'll be introducing him in my Etsy shop soon.

So I'm up to it again....making heads for my new dolls at the kitchen counter. Mr D. is questioning why aliens keep frequenting our kitchen.
Although I haven't been looking for aliens, I have been looking up into the sky a lot lately. I don't know about other places in the country or the world for that matter, but in Arizona the sky starts to turn a beautiful blue in late summer, indicting that autumn is not too far off. Seeing that sky, although it is still 104 degrees, turns my thoughts to Halloween. I love Halloween art and really admire artists who work year round on their ghouls and goblins. You can see many of these artists at http://www.spookytimejingles.com/ and http://ghoultidegathering.blogspot.com/
Maybe someday I'll devote more time specifically to Halloween but I'll start with these two for now and see how it goes.
