Clay Halloween Sculptures


Hello Friends!

The last couple of weeks I have been watching two seasonal shows. One is  called Halloween Wars. The other is called Haunted Gingerbread Showdown.

It was pretty fun to see how bakers built huge sculptured Halloween-themed scenes with baked goods, candy, and anything else food related. But on Haunted Gingerbread Showdown they had to sculpt gingerbread combined with other various ingredients to create large Halloween-themed scenes.

So this inspired me to get out my clay and play! I wanted to form some Halloween themed figures and use my largest googly eyes for fun, too.

As I hope you can see, there is a ghost, a spider, a pumpkin and a bat. The bat was the hardest to create because I didn’t try to mount or elevate it to make it look like it was flying.

Lastly, though, I had to smush them all down again so they wouldn’t dry out. This is not the type of clay that needs firing. It will harden but I don’t  want it to. But if it does, I can put it in a plastc bag with some water and it gets soft again.

I find that the fun thing about clay is that it’s easy to use…easy to clean up…and I don’t have to find somewhere to store the sculptures! So it’s great. It takes me back to the days when the kids and I used to play with Playdough for hours. That was also my favorite part of teaching preschool years ago.

I am hoping that in October at least a couple of the instructors in Let’sFaceIt2020 will do Halloween-themed portraits! But even if they don’t, I might!

Have a wonderful day! 😀

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork. Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. I meant to say “just” not “jut.” I hate making typos. But anyway you got the gist of what I meant.
