So this is not an original idea. I loved so much the ones that knickertwist posted, ages and ages ago that I wanted to see if I could make my own version. She is about 6" high

I had some issues with not being able to get the air drying clay smooth and crack free, but I really love how she turned out. She has real personality.

And her name is Countess Stella of Kilfenora and she talks to crows.

I am trying to destash and make all the things, so if you want a personal swap, pm me

in need of coffee filter papers (my new obsession, filter paper flowers for my wedding next year).

That's one regal spellcaster!  I didn't notice any clay cracking in your photos, but, I think that would just add to her appearance, rather than detract from it, anyway.  I like her assortment of jewelry/trinkets as well, especially the keys.  Fabulous work!

I recognized the inspiration immediately as I adore Knickertwist's creations too. You did a wonderful job making this dame your own, love the character in the face So much! What did you use for her hair? It is wildly alive.

Thanks for the kind words lovely people x

CLM That hair is a small bit of long haired fur fabric- you might recognise it from your wee Viking beard.
