Meet Faye the witch!

Ok, first of all, please don't laugh. Well, now that that is out of the way, I am happy to introduce Faye, the witch!

I made her from scratch, with no molds. I think she turned out pretty well, except for her face, which is actually laughable. I know I should have spent more time on in, but as it is I made and remade the face again and again. I guess I just don't have the talent for making faces..... So again, I beg you not to laugh. I wouldn't show her at all, except that I quite like how her dress turned out. And with her hat on she's not all that bad (her face doesn't show as much, hehe).

Close up of the dress, with a vintage jewelry piece.

Without the hat she doesn't look quite human :P

The hat improves things.... a lot!

I know, I know, the eyes are totally wrong and don't even get me started on everything else. Perhaps my next try will be better, although I have no idea if and when there will be a next try.

So here you have it, a witch for the house. 
Other things I've been busy with include more crates, over 15 of them I think, and making things to go inside the crates. Also got another package of mini bottles, with glitter this time as they are much cheaper. I'm also experimenting with things to mix to make potions, since I'd have to order resin online and it would take some time to reach me. Maybe I'll find some other way to make potions..... 

Well, until next time!



  1. Bravo to you for trying! I think faces are incredibly difficult to carve realistically. I am always in awe of those artisans that can pull it off. I love her hat! She looks like she's ready for a Witche's night out on the town!

    1. That's totally true, faces are probably one of the most difficult things to sculpt. I watched a lot of tutorials but in the end the clay just wouldn't do what I wanted :/ At least I have a doll for size comparison if nothing else.
