Don't you just love the hair? It's literally the same as mine. Well, 12 times more volume in her scale, wish I could have that too!
And of she goes on her broom! Where to? Her lantern is still quite empty, and I think I will start over with the things in it. Now she is finished, I don't think the scene will work as I prepared. It's always different in my head than in real life. But that doesn't matter. Gives the brain some pleasant exercise!
I thought I'd show you how far I am with my witch. It's not much, but at least it's some progress.
I've made the broom earlier. A witch broom has a will of its own, so I thought it needed a face. The eyes are little balls, used in nail art. I think it still needs something to make it more lively, but I don't know what.
The shoes are made of Fimo. I tried making them of a leatherlook fabric, but it was too thick, and didn't follow the curves of the foot. I'm not completely satisfied with this either, but at least it looks like shoes. I do like how the shoestrings have become. It's common thread glued into holes, punched into the clay.
Today I worked on the hands and the wand. I broke one of the hands before, while trying to fit the wand, so I had to make a new one.
The magic wand is more a torch than a wand. I made it with a LED-light in it. I really hope it will work. A LED-light should stay cold, so it should not be any problem with the glue close to it, but I couldn't try it. I did a drastic clean up of my hobbyroom, and since then, I can't find anything!
Now the witch is ready for some clothes, a new challenge. And I still haven't figured out how to put the with on the broom and hang them in the lantern. Upright and stable, that is.
Ik ben een dromer, een overdenker, vol creatieve plannen en ideeën. Soms maak ik miniaturen (black cat cottage blog), een andere keer ben ik aan het tekenen, of schilderen, knippen, plakken, schrijven, fotograferen, zagen, boetseren, sculptuur, borduren, solderen,... Als het maar met sprookjes of natuur te maken heeft. Op dit moment ben ik helemaal weg van mijn Maileg knuffeltjes, en daar gaat het Lily & Rosa blog over. Alle foto's zijn en blijven van mij!
