Kindly monsters celebrate the season

Leah Lester's dragons celebrate Halloween on PolymerClayDaily

Apparently, dragons enjoy celebrating Halloween as you can see in this edition of Little Lazies from Seattle’s Leah Lester.

Very benign and cute creatures are what we need this year and Leah’s is a happy story. She started out as a cake decorator but really wanted to create monsters and so she did.

Legions of polymer lazies appear on Instagram and fly off her Etsy shelves. Sometimes that happens when you follow your heart.

Here’s wishing you a Happy Halloween. I’ll be taking time off to write and play for the entire month of November. PCD will be on hiatus but StudioMojo will come out every Saturday. So if you’re needing to check in with your buddies in polymer, come on over for our Saturday confab. See you back here in December!

Studio monsters

Nichole Johnson loves monster season on PolymerClayDaily.com

New York’s Nicole Johnson (MealyMonsters) is coming up on her favorite time of year. Her witches have taken up residence in their teacups. The pumpkin heads are everywhere on her Instagram

Note new details like dripping noses on her popular witches. Where will the monsters show up in your studio? In the spoons perhaps?

Tricks and treats

California’s Caroline McFarlane-Watts (tall-tales.com) makes some of the scariest 5″ broads you’ve ever seen.

Her miniatures are custom made for use in film, TV, editorial, advertising and for personal collectors. See these good and bad witches in process on her site.

Caroline shows more of her tricks and treats on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Happy Halloween!

October surprise

Kassel on PCDaily

Doreen Gay Kassel gives us an early “trick or treat” with this Pumpkin Head Man polymer sculpture.

What a relief, nothing political in her October surprise. Maybe that’s what makes it a surprise.

Won’t we all be glad to get back to our studios and on the way to recovery from election stress?

Thanks for the surprise, Doreen. See more on Instagram and Facebook.

Studio goblins

Malinow on PCDaily

Who better than illustrator/artist Wendy Wallin Malinow to remind us of the approaching spooky season with her mixed media Goblins?

She resurrects a cigar box and fills it with her distinctive painting and polymer. Go in close for a look at the details.

Wendy entered this piece in the seriously spooky #mabsdrawlloweenclub on Instagram. See more of Wendy’s works on Instagram, Etsy and Tumblr.

Are there monsters and ghosts lurking in your studio?
