I couldn't wait to show you this little witch. I just wish my camera would show you how she really looks. I've decided my problem is I have to use the flash as the lighting usually makes it necessary and even though there is no shine on the piece it always looks shiny in the photos.
This little green witch is named Ginger. She got her name because of her hair which is red or 'ginger' in color. She is fair skinned and is covered with a 'sprinkle' of freckles, hence the "Green witch with sprinkles" title.
Ginger practices "Natural Witch Craft." She works with the energies of natural objects like stones, gems, herbs, animals and the elements and believes all of these things have a spirit or soul.
I've so enjoyed working on this little witch as she has such a joyous spirit. From the moment I had her face roughed in I knew she was going to become one of my favorites.
Ginger is 100% paper mache clay with the exception of her wand and the handle of her broom. She has an owl perched on her hat that I didn't make, and a feather tucked into the band of her hat. She has been painted with many layers of acrylic paint and sealed with acrylic varnish. To make her a bit more magickal she has the tiniest touch of sparkles on the feather and band of her hat and in her hair and on her collar.
I think I'm going to take Ginger outside later today and see if I can get a better photo so you can see how sweet her face really is, and hopefully get a better look at the colors in her clothing and her hair.
I can't help but smile when I look at this little witch's face. She just looks so happy and good natured.
Even though the colors aren't true to the real thing and the flash flattens everything I hope her sweet nature is still evident. I so enjoyed working on this piece and hope the last of my three witches is a lovable as this one.
These last two photos are obviously from outdoors. I couldn't resist taking the whole witchy trio out to see if the lighting made any difference. Maybe a bit. What do you think?
Just a reminder, there are only 4 more days until the drawing for the mystery Santa. If you are interested in entering the contest/giveaway you still have time.
Hope you enjoyed meeting Ginger, and as always, thanks for stopping by.
