Halloween Jack O Lantern Candy Dish

Here is a vintage Halloween style candy dish that I just listed on ebay tonight. I found this unique candy dish and thought it would look great with a Halloween theme. The knob was broken on it, but I planned on sculpting over it any way! The jol is hand sculpted out of paper clay and then painted. I repainted the rest of the dish in black, orange, green and gold to match. Then I antiqued it to give it an old vintage look and gave it a protective clear coat. I thought it turned out quite elegant looking. It measures around 8.5 inches wide and 11 inches tall (including the jol).

Back from Florida and My First Halloween Show!

Just got back from my first Halloween show and what a treat to be able to experience it in Florida! Me and my family had such a great time! I thought I would share a few pics! As I told you before the show was "Spirits on First" put on by Jeanine Taylor Art Gallery in historical downtown Sanford, Florida. Jeanine and the rest of the gang were so great and they did an awesome job at making the show really cool. I met so many great people, collectors and artists!!

Here is my table for the show:

I had received a lot of postive comments on my work! I had made some Halloween jewelry with handmade clay beads that sold very well! I was really excited!

I included with the jewelry a lined coffin box, that I handpainted, to store each piece in.

Melissa Menzer was another artist that had a great display of antique pieces that she sculpted clay faces on. Each piece was so unique! She has quite the imagination!! I could have stared at her table for hours, there was so much detail in her work!

Jorge de Rojas with HohoHalloween was also there! I had seen his work before and was really excited to finally meet him! He is such a talented artist and a wonderful person!!

I really like his witches, so I had to get me one of his ornies!

I thought it was so cool! After the show, he gave my daughter one of his pieces! She was very excited, she is making him something and is going to send it to him.

I had such a fun time, I can't wait until next year!
