Ok all done guys!
|wish you could see the cats in the cage but you really can't|
Ok so now I'm making poisoned apples for an apple barrel that goes with this (Just what an evil queen or witch needs to get her point across :) Is it too much to ask, to be the fairest in the land? I don't think so! These happen to be for sale, $5 an apple for the witch too busy to concoct her own living death potion. Look out Snow White! Your title is about to be taken :) I made one before and here it is:
but this one will be a tad bit different. The idea is pretty much the same though. I've also been busy tonight (after my family cookout) sculpting tiny cursed foe toes for one of my bottles and tiny little crow's feet for another bottle. I think I may start the next monster book of monsters for my new dear buddy Kate. I've promised her a monster book and I never break a promise if I can help it. So I have my clay and eyes on the table to start that as well :)
Oh oh, I almost forgot, I sculpted a witch hat for the hat stand that goes up on top of the cabinet next to the shop sign too. I'll need to cover it with fabric and decorate it before I can stick it up there though. But I have to keep it simple and rather traditional because a fancy one would look silly on this very prim cabinet with the rustic paint/stain job. Very old Salem, Mass if you know what I mean. I have to keep within that style range on everything or risk ruining the old look I was going for.

I'm going to be trying to make these tonight, I hope they turn out ok! I'll post pictures tomorrow if they do. Heck I'll post pictures if they come out like lumps of crap! I want to layer them in two different colors and use some shimmery mica powder I have for effect. I haven't tried to do a detailed mold like this before so it could be scary!
And these aren't small either. Around 4.5 ounces each
Ok so it occurred to me that I have a giant brain mold in the cupboard used for jello making (that was a BIG hit with the boy scouts in my son's troup during Halloween time) and so I thought to myself, why wouldn't that work for soap too? So I tried it. I figured my son and his friend would think that was pretty cool :) So I whipped up a batch and scented it with "man" scented stuff and poured it into the mold. Then I took a sponge (cut in two halves) and ran a rope through it and dunked it into the soap. Here's what it turned out like:
