Lottie & The Witching Hour appears in the ART DOLL QUARTERLY Winter Issue 2011. We created her for their Milieu Challenge. Be sure to check out the other doll artist winners of the Milieu challenge. Lottie,the peasant witch is sculpted from Prosculpt polymer clay. Lottie's clothes are created from a vintage crewel dresser scarf and scraps of Lori's last quilting project. Her hair is goat hair stained from our leftover coffee! She rests her magic potion bag as she gets ready to cast a spell on YOU!
Blossom, Paper Mache Artisans Team Web Show Challenge
April Showers Bring May Flowers was the theme for our Feb. 13th PMA challenge. Blossom our antiqued paper mache duck sets her umbrella down now that the April showers are over and her umbrella is full of May flowers. Blossom stands on a vintage kitchen strainer. Her umbrella is full of vintage millinery flowers. Check out our etsy shop for more details www.careysquirks.etsy.com
The Boogey Man
The Boogey Man dances upon vintage organ keys as he celebrates his escape from the Autumn Harvest! He is constructed from paper mache on a wire armature. He wears vintage crepe pants and a hat decorated with vintage ribbon and tinsel. He was created for the Paper Mache Artisans' Webshow and may be purchased at
We have been working on a variety of "putz" like houses for a custom order on etsy. We really enjoyed the process. Houses appeared everywhere in the studio!
