I'm getting back into sculpting in polymer clay after a lapse of 20+ years.  Here's a piece I made for MamanTattoo in the Yule Swap, a Kitchn Witch riding on a fork.  Body is cotton batting and felt over a wire armature.  Only the head is polymer clay.  The hair is wool from my sheep.

Well, I wondered what you used for her broom! Neat idea. I also make kitchen witches. Mine I use sticks and twigs from the yard for the broom. One of mine will show up on here soon {not this thread, but the swap I was in for IYP}. But I might borrow this fork idea for mine in the future. Off to plan a trip to Goodwill... Grin I love these things. I am not wiccan, but don't mind their ideas. Kitchen witches come from a different culture, though. Scandinavian in origin. Keeps the pots from boiling over, and the buscuits from burning  Grin And they are cute. You did a great job with yours. Glad you got back into clay. A very cute face, and I have already seen where your partner hung hers, and loves it!

Oh hey, for anyone wanting to make these? I use that silly thread they sell at Halloween for those spider web things for the hair. I can't get the sheep roving. You know, that crazy stuff you fluff out to spread webs all over. I just carefully separate the better strands, and it works grand for me.

I LOVE when a shepherd finds a way to use fleece from her sheep in a craft.  Lovely job, the face is awesome and the fork is genius.  This rocks!

Thank you!

This is not intended to have anything to do with Wicca.  MamanTattoo collects kitchen witches.  Smiley
