Curious and curioser.....


 My distraction in 2016 was curiosities & magical specimens and putting creepy thiings in crates & jars.
 Mandrakes & mummified haus gnomes.................



 Mermaids & sea serpents.......

Oh...and  two headed monstrosities & conjoined creatures and demons......
 Odd skulls & horns............
Dangerous dark & vampiric entities & almost cute wee ghosts all live captured  .....
 My shelves filled up quickly

And then I obsessed on potion bottles for a while, and learned to bottle fire....





In the mean time I have amassed a hoard of little bottles & domes, and stocked up on simulated/resin water products and either made or collected all sorts of odd to stuff to put in them, and made hundreds of readable labels.....
So this is just the start......

  2. It's so great to see everything you've been working on! It's really looking fabulous!
    Your work with making creatures of all kinds is inspiring, and the way you have them bottled in the resin is such a pleasure for the eyes - in a delightfully creepy sort of way!
    The Evil Elixir bottles are awesome, and I am going to beg now for a tutorial! Nice work!

    1. Oh Jodi, thank you SO much! I admire your work so much your comments mean a lot to me :-)
      I am embarrassed to say the potion bottles have no secrets, just fabulous vintage wire mesh wrapped beads I came across!
