Thanks, Codsticker! I use a variety of floral wires. The trunk, roots, & heavier branches are the raffia wrapped type from Naturally Wired. What a Face

I have to say, I do like your work. It's very different from anything I've thought of doing, but still with great character. Spooky, creepy, sometimes funny in a crazed laughter of the mad sort of way... Very much your own, I think.

Thanks, Grim. I am happy you like it. I think it's the twisted shape of the tress that give it the spooky look I was hoping for. What a Face

Thanks for the reply, Rhydderch. I am glad you enjoy the stuff.
I just draw my inspiration from an odd mix of things I love with a touch of my own imagination. It is admittedly a strange mix. What a Face

Yesterday was an unfocused affair. This is how things looked at the end of the day:




...on the Spooky Woods Board, I got the tree roots for the background trees & some groundwork done:




...a few Mushrooms were made. These will be featured on a base for a Wyrd mini, Ano No Zako:


...this is Herself. I believe Amo No Zako translates as SCARY Old Crazy Lady:


...AND the excess green stuff = more Faces:


...that's how the day went. Being unfocused can be productive as well as fun.
Some regular-tough-large mushroom were also made; you can see them to the left in the top photos.  clown pig

So by the end of the evening I had the Crazy Lady based up. I may have gotten ever-so-slightly carried away with the base:


Today I added to the ever-so-slightly some somewhat-normal-although-large mushrooms:




...here's a once around the Old Girl:








...insanity cab be such fun. clown

I made some small progress with the Spooky Woods Stage. The clay work is done on the background tress. The upper branches will get the teased out hot glue treatment & some foliage...probably:




...from the Mushroom Forest, I got the idea that the foreground pieces should go to either side to limit the view & frame the miniatures:




...I rarely learn from other Folk's mistakes, but I'm a champ at learning from my own blunders. clown

AND the foliage has been added to the background trees...the foreground ones will remain dead & leafless for contrast:




The clay is almost dry enough to paint; ergo, more later today or tomorrow. clown

...tomorrow. The background trees are primed & ready for some paint. Detailing is a probable...it's my getting-carried-away-with-things nature.


...with the foreground trees:




...I'm thinking of doing the sunken brick road in yellow. More later..."later" being a nebulous concept. clown

I like the bark texture on those trees; what kind of clay did you use?

Thanks, Codsticker. What a Face
The background trees are done with Premier/Primiere air dry clay. The foreground tree on the left is done with Das. They both work nicely. The Premier seems to dry a little quicker, but that might be due to the package being open for awhile.

Great work on the trees. I may never do any of my own, but I like seeing what is possible.

The trees are very impressive. I will have to take a shot at making some.
