Mad Hatter and friends

Happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am ready for my hubby to get home so we can head to our favorite restaurant and get the weekend started :)!

I just put this piece to bed for the night. It's a Mad Hatter candlestick. I have never EVER sculpted a human face before, so I was a bit nervous about it and still am. We'll see how it goes once I get him painted. He is going to have a fuzzy orange mohair "wig" so excuse his current baldness. I LOVED the makeup on the Johnny Depp version of the Hatter, so I can't wait to use my pastels to get a similarly fun effect. The Cheshire Cat is supposed to sit on top of his hat and the Rabbit will either be in one of his hands or sitting on his arm. I am also working on a Mad Hatter ornament and have sketched out a Cheshire Cat Sweet Tooth piece...cannot wait to get started on that one!!

Enjoy your weekend, my blog buddies!
