July STJ Pieces,...
Here are more shots of some new pieces available today over at www.spookytimejingles.com. I have a cat and a moon shaker available. On the chance they do not sell, they will NOT be going on eBay, but will be saved for Halloween and Vine and/or the Soiree shows coming up in the fall!





Here is a detailed shot of my small moon lamp. I sculpted his hat out of mache, then cut a window out. I recycled thick packaging plastic to construct his tiny window, and reverse painted the vintage style cat and bat sillhouettes. I encrusted the inside of the hat with super fine orange blitter and when this piece is lit up with its flicker bulb it is dazzling! The dancing faux flame reflects and bounces off the glittered walls from within the hat, and the moon's face itself also glows orange....



Here is my large moon lamp. The moon is easily removed from the candlestick base and may sit on his own. The hat was constructed out of thick recycled packaging plastic. I painted directly on the plastic. The hat and image of the Halloween cat also glow when lit. It was SpookyTime Jingle's birthday this month so this is my idea of Mr. Moon at the party!
The moon itself is my medium size, seven inch size lantern. I hand stitched his crepe collar....



I cut apart some old lamps to get these finial shapes to use as collars. They are screwed epoxied and glues in tightly to the shaker bases. I just love how the look! The cat has his two top largest fangs sculpted, and the rest are painted. He has a fine shimmer of glitter to highlight his cheeks and brows. There is also glitter encrusting the inside of his ears! I painted an owl and a moon and bats on his hat. The moon looks like a woman in the moon! She has a witch flying over the moon painted on her hat. She is a soft whitish cream color with purple highlights!

More shots of the cat,...

Here is my Evil Skelly lamp! I came up with the idea before The National Halloween Convention to make these with wire stitched mouths. I like the meaner expressions better, but have done smiling happier ones too. They were a hit at tje convention and I will do a couple more this year for shows.

The flicker bulbs are amazing in these lamps!


Thanks for stopping by for a closer look!

I found you by googling artists from Halloween and Vine. I wish I was close this would be an amazing show to visit. You do great work.
