This interesting pair started life as a ballerina doll from a Pound Shop, an ornament head and a fake My Little Pony (both found in the street). They were then daubed with paper-mache and acrylic. Ultimately they starred in a strip I did for an issue of Paper Tiger Comix.
Quite pleased to have found some photos of the Butcher Shop that I modified with nail varnish, acrylic and a glue gun a good few years back.
Brains and crucifix were made out of Prima clay.
The man in black was originally supposed to be a chimney sweep as I recall, but I gave him some crosses to try and make him look like Rev. Trask from Dark Shadows.
I made this for my friend's birthday using pom poms, pipecleaners, a fashion doll head, rose quartz beads, paper-mache, nail varnish, acrylic, pins, a cocktail stick. I even got the scary Power Engraver out to add a bit of detail to the stage.
The figurine has proceeded to appear in a series of tableaux, including this wonderful 'gothic' one. Photo/tableau by Andrew Barron.
