Fun making Marla Mudslide in 2015! 😉 This was my clay prototype so yes- I used super sculpey over wire and painted her with acrylics. I put an LED light inside her pumpkin. 🎃 This character from Good Witches Bad Witches TM will be resculpted by me (the design refined and improved) and issued as a collectible soon. (Delay since release of Hortense is due to pandemic but getting back to normal soon). @talltalesproductions

Buck the Armadillo! The favourite familiar of Marla Mudslide. Here he is and in this video I compare him to the very first rough design of him (which you saw in images yesterday) when I designed and sculpted him back in 2015. My designs get refined and I hope you like the changes… @talltalesproductions

Making yellow pythons! These are “Artist Proofs” (AKA “APs”) and they’re so much fun to paint because they’re cheerful and bright yet spooky. @talltalesproductions

The piece I get asked for again and again (and can’t deliver because he was a Limited Numbered Run) is Claude my alligator! Very frustrating as I’m asked tor him weekly if not daily. So… I’ll issue him again but different to this version. Watch out- a new Claude piece is on the horizon! @talltalesproductions

My English witch Mildred Muddlesop had something to say on my Inatagram story but in case you missed it… we will be traveling to the United Kingdom in a few days and gone for a month… that’s why I’ve been working like a manic lately… you can still place orders and someone will fulfill them!

FAN ART SHARE! How exciting it is when someone recreates one of my characters like this! Here is Borghild (first two photos are mine) made as an almost exact replica by a lovely talented fan in Brazil called Liliane @lilianelopespaz . Look at her details… she got everything right- the bronze cauldron of fish… the purple knit gloves… even the binding in her thick braids! So impressed. 👏

Please always tag me or send me your replicas of my work so I can see! (And friendly reminder that you can totally do this for fun and for learning but not for profit :) Thanks) @talltalesproductions

Who else is looking forward to getting the Mildred Muddlesop witch to keep alongside her pet English bulldog, Archie?!

She’s grumpy and short tempered and he’s patient, sweet-natured but anxious. Her bullishness keeps little Archie feeling grounded. What a an couple of friends. @talltalesproductions

Want to hear a Tall Tales secret?! The character relaxing on this French couch (which is from Hortense’s lobby) was supposed to be one of her poodle minions. I sculpted it and didn’t like it so I started all over again. Didn’t like it. Time was running out and this piece needed to be released (in accordance with some gallery deals and most importantly, my promise to you all). So I sculpted Nico - this little skunk instead. Hortense has a couple of skunks working in her scent rooms of Mal Odor (her perfume business), so it was was fine. But it wasn’t what I’d wanted.
How often do you give something your best shot in life realize it’s still not good enough and have to change the course of action?! @talltalesproductions

People ask me who my personal favourite witch is, and out of the ones I’ve physically made (instead of just writing about), it might be Mabyn Mossback. She’s Welsh and I had a good deal of fun studying Welsh art and culture and coming up with her design. Welsh culture is so fascinating and magical. Largely untouched by the Roman occupation (well, yeah the Romans did come through and take a lot of the welsh gold from their mines), but untouched by the Saxons and Normans… at the very least. Look for the Norse influences in the wood carvings. Did the Welsh inspire the Vikings or vice versa? Anyway, Welsh language, Welsh food.. the land itself… the folklore, customs, history, art… it’s just endless inspiration.

My favourite witch overall?! You haven’t seen her yet. She’s a good witch… ;) @talltalesproductions

How much do you know about Hortense?! A witch... a French witch who thusly resides in the French Quarters of the hidden society of witches on the edge of our world... Hortense enters a room chin first. Her snappy purse is made from the beastliest leather and her shoes are as pointed as her nose. Her poodle perched atop her trolley and her vicious three headed stole will keep you away if her odious perfume does not. Many a lazy skunk make use of the furniture in her ostentatious residence. @talltalesproductions

Love your work! I love mushrooms and you did a beautiful job I hope I win
Thank you for badge of a top fan. I still remember the first day that I came across your website and all of the amazing miniatures. The very first one that got my attention was the picnic table full of food. But, have I ever told you that my favorite is still Captain Hook? I’ve said this many times and it’s worth repeating...you have the most original characters and creations. And no matter what you create, I can tell that you put your heart into every piece....and it truly shows.
I just received my Hortense in the mail today! To say I am absolutely delighted is an understatement! This is incredible!! I am so addicted! She is splendid!! The craftmanship, attention to detail and the lifelike expression is divine! Worth every penny and the wait!
I just got notified that my Hortense has been shipped!! Oh my - I am giddy! (Which is wonderful since I have the flu) Yay!
Please pick me!!
LOVE ALL THE WORK AS USUAL!!!! 😍
Hi Caroline.I am such a huge fan of your work and in the Uk. I wondered if I may ask you a question. My Dad had a model railway for Christmas and I would like to make him some detailed human figures for it at the 00.00 scale (the most popular scale) Could you please give me any tips please.
Just getting reacquainted with sculpting with polymer & paper clay. It's a learning process. I wondered how you could bake those fat little things if they were polymer clay. And then I learned of mold-making & resin. So, you model in polymer or WED then make molds to cast them in resin. Please tell me if I've finally figured it out! I do love your characters. So imaginative & so precisely made. I would love to a video of the whole process from modeling to finished object.
I absolutely love your work! Looking forward to watching the tutorials!!!!
Happy Birthday! lol... Facebook told me. I entered your contest and was already following you here and IG. Good luck everyone!
OMGosh... LOVE... Just saw your English Witch.. Amazing!!!
