22  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Cat Bat on: September 09, 2017 09:23:44 AM

Here's a little paper clay cat bat I made for KarenLouiseM in the Vintage Halloween swap. I don't often work with clay, so each time I try, it's a real adventure.

He stands about 6" tall, and is dressed to go trick or treating. To help him stand, I bent a wire hanger into a U shape, turned it upside down, and built his body onto the wire with the two ends of the U becoming his legs.


The open polka dots on his costume were the result of a happy accident. When I first painted them, I wasn't happy with the color, so I attempted to wipe them off. They had already partially dried, so I was left with a little ring of color that I happened to like. I did the rest of the dots in that same way: putting dots in a small area, and then wiping out the centers. Once he was all painted, I used some ink to dirty him up, and then painted him with glaze to make him shiny.


KarenLouiseM said she liked a bit of humor, so oops! cat bat has lost a button and his little rear end is exposed.  Shocked

So glad you liked it, KLM! I've been waiting eons to swap with you in a Halloween swap!

The cat bat is made of paper clay, and yes, I'll give it its own post. I don't often work with clay, so it was a fun adventure for me!

Those candy corn trees made me shed a little Halloween tear of joy. Love! I like those scary "eek" houses, too. Nice job, pottermouth.
