Happy Halloween!

I do love a bit of Halloween. Here is a fairly hideous pumpkin brooch I made the other day out of Fimo – it has copper powder around the amazing glow-in-the-dark eyes! I was actually aiming for scary but everything I do tends to end up looking quite cute so I had to work quite hard to make this guy look like bad news. I think I sort-of succeeded. Happy Halloween!

Jarrolds Fimo-fest!

On Saturday I had a Fimo demo in Jarrolds in Norwich – admittedly it’s a little early for Halloween but any excuse to start making ghosts and pumpkins is fine by me. I made the below steam-pumpkins to  Staedtler’s secret recipe and this is my little ghost who glows in the dark….!

Whoooooooooooooo!
Whoooooooooooooo!

This beuatiful castle was the creation of one of my rather clever pupils on the day - nice work.

This is an example of another tutee's excellent efforts - full marks!
