Tombstones

A couple years back when I started my website I made molds of certain sculpts of mine so that I could keep a steady stock and keep the item permanently listed on the website. I'm able to keep a low price on the item as a result of this, but the cast pieces still get a lot of attention from me. I usually touch up the piece with any sanding or re-carving it needs and sometimes also have to build more on to it. I also hand paint each piece to give it it's character and uniqueness.
My skulls are one group that I molded and cast as many of you already know and have seen emerging on blogs around the world (thanks everyone that showcased them!!!). The skull for the Altar Table that I posted about a few posts back was a new sculpt because I wanted a slightly smaller size (so don't think I can't sculpt them again, I just used the molds for ease of sale on the website :)).
Anyway, aside from the skulls I think the only other items I have molded are an assortment of tombstones that I sculpted about two years ago. I forgot about these until someone ordered them about an hour ago (Second sale of these since I made them two years ago, yaaaay!). They are really spooky, they are taller than some manufactured 1:12th scale tombstones that I bought at my local mini store (which I think are way to small), and they have some great details on them.
Here are lots of pictures of them. Sorry about the lighting on the pictures, I was still a novice at photography, and still am :). Please check out my website, there are a lot of forgotten minis there that need homes XD. http://www.dflycreations.net/
 
 

My first sale of these was for a Halloween themed cake, my tombstones were cake decorations. I made everything you see pictured with them. For that sale I also made a tree with a ghost attached. Here's pictures of those. These were the first set of tombstones I sculpted, these led me to sculpt the tombstones pictured above and make molds of them. Cast pieces will look like the tombstones above.

  12. Thanks Emily, your room is going to be brilliant! When your mom told me the idea I was practically jumping for joy at being able to help and provide things! I also want to see this dress that your mom wants you to make, she says your quite the fashionista XD.

  13. Thankyou! Yes, it is a really fun room to do with all the little bits and bobs to buy and make!

    Mum has to get the fabric for the miniature Alice dress i'm making for her and then I'll be able to do it, as long as I don't get too carried away with my Merlin project! I'm also making a full sized dress for myself and will probably post a picture of the pattern later!
