Goblin Princess is now complete and already has a new home. She is a 9" figure sculpted from puppen fimo over a strong wire armature. She stands with the brass rod and tube method in order to remove her for shipping. She has hand-painted eyes and beautiful mohair for her flowing hair. I dressed her in antique lace with an overlay of a sheer gauze fabric and some German Glass Glitter for sparkle.
The Goblins who are emerging from underground to scare the Princess are also sculpted from puppen fimo. The base is decorated with mosaic tiles and apoxie clay leaves and branches.
According to the story, the goblins were absolutely hideous or ludicrously grotesque both in face and form. hmmmmmmmmmm I think my goblins do not fit that description. In fact when posting some WIP on Face Book, there were comments on how "cute the goblins were....I do not like ugly or scary and guess that is why I sometimes have trouble trying to create Halloween figures.
This piece took me much longer than usual to finish...I had to redo the base twice in order to fit the goblins on it and dressing her was not easy for some reason; but, it all seems to have worked out in the long run.
