Wulf, I can't tell you how much I love your tin......it's so sad, so expressive and forlorn. Beautifully done.

I have to say I was a bit relieved to see that the twins weren't as depressing as I remembered them. Maybe it was just that in the flash photo their exhibit is a bit cheerier than it was on my rather underlit work-table! Amaryllisroze, can you post a photo of the back? I forgot to get one before I sent.

The tiny skeleton wasn't made of polyclay as I'd first intended, because I found it too hard to work with at that scale. I ended up finding tiny skull beads the right size, and built the rest of the skeleton out of other materials. The spine is made up of small flat beads with tiny punched paper disks as spacers, the ribs watercolour paper, and the limbs I carved from balsa wood. A coat of gesso made it all work together.

I'm not really that creepy, usually!

wulf, when I was looking at Millie and Christine, I didn't think they were creepy at all, just terribly desperately sad.

I like that. A lot.  Cheesy And I love the cover of the tin -- dark grim lusciousness.

And the overall design of the lighted (lighted!) Medusa tin really floats my boat.

As to the size of Knickertwist's entry, lolol.  You may have noticed that my avatar has me holding a tiny house.  I started including at least one pic with a hand it for all my houses, why?

Because a friend of mine (who works in the same scale), once had to deal with a cranky-confused customer who had purchased one of her houses thinking (after looking at a dozen pictures) that it was a full-sized (1/12th scale) dollhouse. lol

So just for Knickertwist:
