Tabitha is the newest lil witch in my 2013 Halloween witch series. She has a strong wire armature that was wrapped in wool yarn. Her face, torso, hands, feet and boots were hand sculpted using clay. (No molds are ever used in my character sculpts) Her face, eyes and boots were hand painted using acrylic paints. Her bustier and boots were washed with acrylic paints to give it that vintage look. Her hair is dyed wool yarn and is curled to look like dreadlocks. (All the fashionable witches are wearing their hair like that this year. ^_^)
Her costume was hand sewn using some of my vintage fabrics and tulle. Her witch's hat was made from felt and adorned with some of the tulle and fabric same as her dress. Tabitha sits on a wooden base that was painted black and a piece of tulle with felt pumpkins attached as the rug. Her skellieabra, wand and books were all handmade from clay as well. She sits right at 6 inches from the bottom of her base to the tip of her hat.
I enjoy designing and making my little whimsical characters. I always show you a few WIP photos as a tease when I'm working on one and thought I would show you a few more as Tabitha started to come to life.
Tabitha can be found in my Etsy shop and I promise she will make a wonderful new addition to your home. She has already promised me to be a very good lil witch!!
My muse has already started whispering about more ooaks to add to this series but I told her she just had to shhhhhhush for now. I'm going to be spending the rest of the week getting everything cleaned, organized and set up for our yard sale this weekend. WOW....have we ever collected a lot of junk ummmm I mean treasures..hehe!! I may make a few necklaces after dinnertime for the next few nights (I just have to stay busy busy ya know) some of my beach sand ones and I"m thinking about making a few magic wand and potion bottle ones too. What do YOU think?
Until next time........Hugs,
