You did an amazing job creating that centerpiece, She's like the like a mushroom beacon.

That is awesome.  Your skill is improving.  I just cannot get over the fantastic sense of whimsy you put into your work.  You constantly amaze me with your little world.

 

@Pingo really needs to check this out.  She is a fan of Fraggle Rock.

Thanks for the morale boost, MetalChaos. I am happy you like the Girl...she does have a sweet smile...for a trash heap.

Thanks for a very kind reply, TaleSpinner. I am delighted you enjoy my stuff.

It is all just as much fun, if not more, now, after all these years as it was when I painted my first miniature.

AND there is always room for improvement.

Nice work, but now I'm reminded of how creepy "Fraggle Rock" was to me as a kid. 

 

Thanks, hjorhrafn. I am happy you like the Girl, AND sorry to bring back creepy moments from your childhood.

I have had a few folks say that my Mushrooms gave them nightmares. I might have to add a caveat to my posts.

Thanks for the reply AND the "like", Wolf. She & I were starting to feel unloved. I am delighted you like her.

She's great, and whimsical, and fits your world perfectly, Al.  All the little bits and pieces come together and make the greater whole that is The Divine Miss Mags. 

 

I believe I've forgotten to ask, how big is her base and how tall is she?

Thanks for the kind reply, Steve. I am delighted you like her. Somehow an All Knowing/Seeing Trash Heap fits well with the rest of my World.

She definitely is an apt reflection on the state of the drinking water...served by the slice.

Mags is a towering 7+" tall & graces a 9 something " diameter base...she's a Big Girl.

LOL.  The first thought I had was that Mags or her attendants would correct anyone to say that she's "voluptuous." 

 

There's a certain amount of confidence that she exudes, and I would have said the same for Madame Trash Heap.

 

As to the "miniature" size, that's on par with Khanjira and some others that Reaper has made (mine's based on a 10" disc).  That's one heck of a feat.  @TaleSpinner is absolutely right, you are both improving and growing in more than one way with what you are creating.

      Another month another batch of Mushrooms & Associates. This month is a bit lighter than last. I started it toward the end of last month's Gang...which is still waiting on some Show Off photos. 
      I am also hoping to squeeze in some Pumpkinheads & other Halloween strangeness elsewhere. More of that later. For now, The Mushrooms:

       
      With the ever popular Leo Sizechek for comparison:

       
      I got the idea to do a Mushroom/Goblin Wizard from this illustration:

       
      Mine is a bit seedier:

       
      A Goblin Faerie sidekick seemed appropriate. Appropriate or not I wanted to try out some paper punch butterfly wings with a foam coating inner layer:

       
      AND base coated & ready for color:

       
      More whenever.

      A few days ago I started a new type of Mushroom based on some Pinterest polymer clay pieces like this one:

       
      This one & his kin are quite a bit larger than the ones I make, but the detail is something to aspire to.
      Here is a step by step of my Mushroom in progress up to yesterday. This is the plumber's epoxy dolly:

       
      The Kneadotite (green stuff):

       
      I use the left over green stuff to make smaller versions of the Big Mushroom...you probably already notice that:

       
      There will be more of this type in varying sizes AND their bases coming along soon...or eventually.

      I have been wandering through the wonderfully inspiring photos on Pinterest. The Mushroom pictured there have created a need to make some new Faerie Folk Mushrooms of my own.
      I put up pic on my Last Hurrah Thread, but since this may be a protracted effort, I thought I would post here as well. These are a few of the ones I am doing versions of:

       


       
      The first stage dollies were made on Wednesday:

       
      Green stuffing & additional dollies on Thursday. 

       
      Friday was lost to H&R Block, AND yesterday was a daze. Today my enthusiasm clicked into high gear.
      The result was the Two Tall Mushroom got their green stuff done, along with some work on the supporting cast:

       
      Since these pics were taken, I have done a base coating of black on the Tall Fellows, & finished the green stuffing on the medium sized mushrooms.
      Have I mentioned that I have a tendency to get carried away?

      I have been waiting somewhat patiently for C.M.o.N. to restock Enigma's Oz-Zuh, Moon Face for several months. Today I thought I'd try my hand at making a mini similar to Oz.
      This is Enigma's version...I would love to have mine paint up this nicely:
       
      This morning I did up a dolly:

       
      He looks like Howard the Duck at this stage:

       
      Some green stuff work on his face, the ruff collar, & a hooded cape:


      Now the Moon Faced Lad is one sleeve away from basic completion with only some embellishment that I may later regret to do:

       
      The green stuff should be dry by seven or so; SO I may have him done today...or not.
      Since I will be basing & painting him, I thought the W.I.P. section was more appropriate than the Sculpting.

      My friend Daniel aka tauser, from the DM Craft Forum used Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock character Marjory The Trash Heap as the basis for one of his Monsters.
      It was such a wonderful idea that I had to do a version of my own. She is just perfect for my Last Hurrah Project. SO...
      Here is Jim Henson's original Marjory:

       
      AND here is my W.I.P. version of The Trash Girl:

       
      Stay tuned for further developments...eventually.
