Have you hugged your skeleton today?

A handful of Halloween!
Too soon? Who says skeletons and pumpkin heads belong exclusively to October? Halloweeny stuff is probably our favorite to work on. It's just such a friendly holiday, with just a little touch of creepiness. A chance to take candy from strangers and say thank you. And skeletons don't really seem exclusively Autumnal at all. I mean, everybody is walking around with one in them right this minute.
Inspired by the traditional Dia de los Muertos candies, I did my own version of some sugar skulls this week. They're made of wood, with little paper clay noses. I hadn't tried sculpting paper clay right on wood before, but it worked like a charm!



Hope you're all having a friendly day.

  7. How adorable!! I love your little dollies and your "calaca" is looking great!! Dia de los Muertos is my thing, but then, I grew up with it and all the colours and festive toys, candies, breads, etc....it's a fun holiday, however, some feel it's gruesome..oh well, their problem, right??

    Keep it up...I'm lovin' all it!!
