All my witches!
This week I have been into making witches! What fun, I had no idea there were so many witch collectors out there. I challenged myself to do different types, themes, and some new materials and did three of them. First I did an old crone that turned out truly spooky. Different for me in that there is no hint of laughter in her. She is so scary though she makes me laugh. I used water colors on her face though and came up with some fun effects. I like the little bat detail on her hat. The next is a real departure in that I wanted to do a young pretty witch. I wanted her to be more truly folksy so she has no trace of glitter and more muted colors. I used some vintage bottle brush and hand carved black birds on her hat. Even used some black silk thread for her hair. Next the more traditional witch but I added a sculpted crescent moon on her hat and matched her eyes to the hat. Can't you just hear them all cackling together?? Not sure where they will be listed, will keep everyone posted.
