It may be getting darker and colder now, but I love October and I love Halloween! I am a sucker for all Halloween things in the shops at the moment – toffee apples, plastic spiders to scare people, green and ghoulish sweets!
I decided to make some cute Halloween themed charms which I made into earrings. These are now up in my Etsy shop. I also made this cute pumpkin ornament which I love. I found a tutorial online and adapted it a little to make mine. I plan to make a whole pumpkin patch!
I’m still making little creature tins and tried to made a gradient octopus, from a translucent green into copper. He was being a bit awkward though, I think his head is a strange shape! i added the resin last night and woke up to find the tin had stuck to my drawers! Whooops! I spent 10 minutes trying to carefully pries it free with one of my clay tools.
I made a custom designed Fizzling for one of my good friends with some intricate detailing on the side. I also made the eyes from resin in a mold and painted the back. They are pretty big!
Lastly, I have been makings some fairies, mini houses and magical mushrooms from my sister’s project at her nursery school. She is going to make fairy worlds in little jars and asked me to make some ornaments. Hope she likes them!
