Claythings

There's been a strange, new development in my studio lately....
I go to bed with a new Paperclay package set out for the next day...
and when I wake up......a figurine is standing on my desk next to an empty wrapper....
Those clay elves must be at it again!

Ahhhh, if only that were true! 
I bought a large amount of the stuff back in January and just now started to try my hand at it.

It's not easy......

But I quickly became addicted!
Now, in addition to the usual paint smears on my clothes and skin, you can now find clay bits under my nails and gesso in my hair :)

What do you think of this guy?


I call him Bug~a~Boo because of his buggy eyed expression....
He's actually a functioning box for.....wait for it....


......creepsakes...haha!
Move over Martha Boowart!
Here is the Hostess with the Grossest!
She comes with accessories like these Black Widow cookies....Devil's Food, of course!


All these fun, spooky things....

This grinning witch really turned into a labor of love....I kept adding more and more to her....I had to completely repaint her dress 3 times!

But I think she's frightfully delightful now!

She stands almost 10 inches (24 cm) high!

Did those cookies make you hungry?  I have just the thing for you!


Btw, do you like the neat filters I'm using on some of the photos? I got them here!

Creepy Crawly Confections, anyone?

Just something fun for staging a witchy tea party scene ;P

And then, there is Smudge...


With book in hand, he keeps secrets and sorts spells....a cute little Witch's Apprentice!

Have Magic, will travel ;P


I had to add the pumkin to make him balance....look at that tail...haha!

And, not to leave out my Christmas loving friends....


Jingles is my very first snowman...


I gave him actual twig arms...just like a real snowman!

All these creations are in my shop ready to find new homes :)

What will the clay elves make next?
Heeheehee!

Biggest hugs!
Cam

wow its like your paintings in 3D, they look soo good Cameron. i was thinking that because you said it was hard you may have given up a bit but NOOOOO!! you have created so much. I love them to bits, and the painting and varnishing makes them look delish!

I do hope someone buys these treats, that snowmans arms are just too cute.

You have a magical way with faces for sure! Queen of the eyes!

If a little clay elf showed up while you were sleeping, you'd be mad because he's be stealing all your fun!
