When I bought my studio (an old house that belonged to my friend & neighbor before she went into the nursing home), there were lots of old spice tins & bottles in the cabinet. I hung on to them waiting to use them. Several years later, I figured it out!
I covered the tin with some pages from an old book and painteda creepy tree, added letters from newpaper to spell out "boo", then topped it with a paperclay pumpkin head with crazy eyes! Measures about 5.25" including his stick stem.
Hand-sculpted & hand-painted with a rusty wire hanger. Measures about 2.5" high not including the hanger.
Necklace made from a combination of antique & found objects including an antique doll head, multi coloried beads, an old domino, wire, vintage rhinestones and an old chain. Measures about 34" around so it's nice for wearing long or doubling up.
Moon head is hand-sculpted from paperclay. I sculpted his eyes for a harder clay and sculpted the eyelids over that. I painted the moon several different layers of paint with many different colors and a very slight crackle effect. The base of the make-do is a rusty old handle and a painted & distressed wooden dowel.
Hand-sculpted from paperclay, hand-painted and aged. He has a secret too....he used to be a teddy bear! I used a teddy bear figurine as the base. I thought that was a funny secret for a voodoo baby. ha!
