EHAG Emporium ~ "Pulp Friction" Luminary & Candy Container

This months EHAG Emporium is now upon us and I have created a very special pumpkin. This fun piece is the product of many hours of hard work. A few more details about this piece are posted below:

"Pulp Friction" is a hand sculpted pumpkin that's given to bouts of crankiness. I think his expression clearly shows he's not very agreeable!
It could simply be because his wrinkles are taut that he's looking a bit fraught, so be forewarned he may be a bit ornery until you make him feel at home.

This ill-natured guy has been trimmed with vintage crepe paper (in shades of green and taupe) that's been sewn and hand cut (by me) to mimic leaves around his base.
To seal and mildly antique this cantankerous fellow I have applied two kinds of paste wax, buffed to a soft, satin/semi-sheen.
His paper eye and mouth inserts have been treated with an archival paper spray to help them last throughout the years. (The better to see you with!)

Approximate size of this piece is: 7.05" high by 9.0" wide x 26.0" in circumference.
He's plenty big enough to fill with wrapped candies and can be illuminated using a battery operated light source. * No real candles please.*

SOLD, thank you!!!
"Pulp Friction" is $175- (plus airmail shipping.)
Please email: therudolphs@sympatico.ca to purchase this piece.

Silliness du jour

Here's a few little "things" I have been working on. Granted, they are a bit silly... but I have had a blast making a handful of mache/accordion lantern ornaments. Pleated paper bodies and silly little papier mache heads, hands and feet. (Then again, I am easily amused can't you tell?) 

Aside from a bit of cheap entertainment I have been busy finishing up my piece for this months my EHAG Emporium. There's a sneak peek below.
The EHAG Emporium opens it's Halloween doors on Saturday night (April 30th) at 9:00 p.m. EST. I hope you'll stop by to see all the items for sale.

BUT... don't forget to pop into the EHAG Emporium now... I say NOW because there's a  giveaway happening... and the prizes are really, really cool!

Have a great week, hope to see you Saturday night! ~ Lori

Let spring and the sanding commence!

Today I feel somewhat akin to the groundhog who's finally seen his shadow. I finally saw mine as I stepped outdoors to a gorgeous, sun filled and pleasantly warm day.
That being said, I am proceeding outdoors in the next few minutes to sand all these Halloween/fall themed papier mache pieces I've been diligently working on the past several weeks.
Some of these pieces will be put aside to sell on online venues (STJ and EHAG Emporium), others will be put aside for two upcoming fall shows... and some have already made travel plans (hopefully) by the end of this week in anticipation of SpookyTime Jingles at the NHC in early May. Wish me luck with the sanding etc.!

Have a great weekend all! ~ Lori
