GOBLINS!

I STARTED SCULPTING SOME NEW WITCH HEADS. BUT, AFTER SOME RESEARCH, I FOUND IF I ADD POINTED EARS, ......THEY BECOME GOBLINS! --WHO DOESN'T LIKE GOBLINS???
(ANY MENTION OF GOBLINS HAS TO PAY TRIBUTE TO THE MASTER OF GOBLIN ART -- BRIAN FROUND   http://www.worldoffroud.com/)

HERE'S HOW THEY START -- A 3" STYROFOAM EGG, MOUNTED ON A WOOD BASE, COVERED IN A LAYER OF PAPER CLAY WITH FLAT-BACKED DOLL EYES (THEY'RE ALWAYS SO CREEPY WITHOUT THEIR EYELIDS!)

HERE ARE THE TWO WITH MOST OF THE SCULPTING FINISHED:

AND, THE FINISHED GOBLINS -- AFTER PAINTING, I ADDED SOME FELT HATS (HAND-STITCHED) AND SOME BEAD DANGLES TO THE EAR FLAPS. ONE COLLAR IS A STRIP OF FAKE-FUR, THE OTHER IS RAVELED GAUZE:

ENJOY!

Love your goblins Arley.....definately a good choice of hats.. The one on the left looks like he's itching to get into trouble, the one on the right, he's quietly plotting his next move.. ;o))) Romona

Thanks Romona -- How great that you come up with stories for the goblin's personality!

These guys are perfect Arely! To me they look like the Master Goblin (long in the tooth;) and his protege. Who knows what trouble they will get into!
