Boo to You, Too — A Halloween Scene in Miniature
- The body of the bat is an empty plastic jug that contained protein powder.
- The head is two plastic cups, tin foil, card, and paper clay. The teeth are wire, covered with paper clay. The eyes are plastic, painted with nail polish.
- The wings are poster board, jointed with brads, highlighted with glitter glue.
- The image of the moon is painted plastic. A small bat is flying past. There are lights that light up the moon and the bat’s eyes.
- The platform was built up from layers of styrofoam and gatorboard. The flooring is a copied image. Under the base are pieces of egg carton that have been painted to look like stones.
- The window is layers of card, covered with wood filler.
- The witch was sculpted from paper clay (head) and polymer clay (hands and boots that don’t show). I made her, of course. Her broom is grass from the nearby landscapes and a twig. Her hat is posterboard. Her hair is wool.
- The ghost was sculpted from polymer clay. The pot he’s in is quilled paper.
- My daughter-in-law Chelsea made the lamp. Isn’t it cute?
- The bookshelf was leftover from another project.
- The hanging cage has a polymer clay raven, and it’s attached to a plastic bone arm. The cage is made from crochet thread.
- I made the chair from a fat quarter of fabric. The rug is crocheted yarn wound in circles. The ottoman is cardstock and a button. The mushrooms are clay (they are green and purple).
- The planter was a cap, but I wound it around and around with colored string.
