Old Witch Debby ...


Old witch Debby
Stout and dour
Casting spells 'round the hour
A perfect witch she is not
She fell into the cauldron pot!
(poem by Ellen Gee)
Oops... looks like the old girl messed up a spell again in her inimitably clumsy way, and by the expression on her face, she's none too happy about it either
Like all my sculptures, Old Witch Debby is made from both polymer and paper clay on a wood/styrofoam armature, and painted in vivid acrylics (Halloween palette of course). Her hair was hilariously fun to do! Composed of multi-colored pulled and wrapped long sections of yarn, and then fastened to her head securely with glue. Her skirt and belt are cotton material and she has a tiny black bow-tie at the seam of her skirt in back.

Come meet ol' Debby next weekend at the Bewitching Peddlers of Halloween show in Marshall, Michigan. She promises to not attempt any spellcasting while you're there!
