New SnipPet Spooks for the SpookyTime Jingles Update!

It's my favorite time of the month...SpookyTime Jingles update day! These pieces will be available at midnight tonight on my STJ Halloween page.

I am starting on a tower/temple/topiary series that I am really excited about. So, i decided to create a Halloween version first. This Frog Temple is full of little spooky cute hand sculpted details....a frog, an owl, a mini moon, tiny perching blackbirds and of course, a happy jack o' lantern. The cone part of the piece was layered with paint to give it a mossy, aged effect, and I painted small creeping vines all over it.




My juggling circus animals seem to be the favorite in my etsy shop, so a black cat juggling pumpkins seemed like the purrrrrfect Halloween version! Esmeralda the Cat is having a fabulous time with her giggling pumpkins and her favorite pair of mouse shoes! Again, I used several layers of paint and stain to give her more depth and texture.
