SO, The Spook started to manifest himself on my work bench on the first of September...or there's about.

He's the tall one off to the right. This is the plumber's epoxy head with bead eyes on the floral wire frame:

The plumber's epoxy spreads & The Spook starts to form:

Slowly he turns green:

Next some associates, cronies, & such; a proper setting; AND then a base...although the order may vary as  attention wanders. Being Old offers a stream of excuses for gadding about.

Looks like a variation of "The Scream" by Edvard Munch".  !!!

Great going, can wait to see where this goes.

How do you do those hands. And textures! What is this witchcraft! Your hand sculpts are a lot more detailed than of quite a few minis that I own. My recently arrived bones 3 Sophie sadly has a bit of blob hand going on...I wish I was good enough at sculpting to replace it. Also love the dotted mushroom cap!

He looks wonderful! I'm looking forward to seeing him after painting and basing, although an alternative to that would be to have him stay green as the Great Jalapenio Spirit, organizer of the Blight's Hot Sauce Festival. "Where mouth melting flavor isn't just a marketing phrase!"

...that is one I am familiar with. The Spook's own terror is terrifying.

I am delighted you like him, Jay. I am looking forward to where it winds up myself...love surprises...mostly. Thanks for the reply.

...I cheat on the hands & arms. They are G.W. plastic Zombie arms. I am of the opinion that their hands are the most beautifully sculpted. The Crypt Ghouls arms & hands are quite nice also.

You might get a couple of arms that would work from one of the bitz sellers...it is one of the benefits of living in Britain.

..the Hot Sauce Festival is an idea, but I thing there might be more grave than gravy in his future.

Thanks for the reply, Lord of the Dish Pit.

Every time I try to sculpt something more than a rock, the GS sticks to my fingers like glue.

I get my prints all over it and all.

 

Great work again!

...Green Stuff takes some getting used to...moist tools help.

I am happy you like The Spook. Thanks for the reply, Glitter!

Not much was accomplished other than working on possible bases:

Making The Spook a permanent fixture on the Cemetery Board is a possibility.

Could be because I work so much on my Lost World, but that top base with the big rock, I see a kind of Dino head in that.

An eye, a big snout, some scales....

...looking at it carefully, it looks like a Muppet-style Beasty.

      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.
