Wow, I’m glad so many of you liked my #aliceinwonderland (or more accurately, my #madhatter #teaparty) scene yesterday! Got more emails about that than anything I’ve posted in ages. I realllllly try to stay on top of comments and DMs and emails but lately I’ve been hiding my phone from myself for 10 or 12 hour stretches so I can get my deadlines sorted, so HUGE apologies if I miss a comment, but please know i do care and value you all so much. ❤️❤️❤️ @talltalesproductions

Now is when I’d be having my solo show at Cartoon Network - along with so many cool things which were scheduled for this year, it was canceled / postponed to 2021 due to #coronavirus. Ugh. Oh well!! That’s as well as interviews, TV spots, two exhibitions at galleries I love... but I shouldn’t complain because there are people really suffering right now due to all this and people who’ve lost a loved one. Love from me and the gals of Tall Tales to all... ❤️ @talltalesproductions

Heading out! Got everything I need? Mask, check! Hand sanitizer, check! Kitchen utensils and pet rat?! Sure, why not.
This was sculpting Helga Candytrotter from #goodwitchesbadwitches. Before you ask- yes, it’s #supersculpey ! Stay safe this holiday weekend everyone. 😷❤️😀 @talltalesproductions

My expression when I wake up during lock down. What time / day / month is it??!! 🤪😂 @talltalesproductions

For those that don’t know, I sometimes make these #resinart toads and release them on my webshop in shimmery cool colours, or as #resinblanks (#resinkit ) for you to paint for yourself. I went through a “toad phase”!! 🤣

Just realized there’s only 1 more Archie left at my online store!! (Link in main bio). I held two back in case of a gallery show which may or may not happen later this year, but this one is available now and ships straight from me! The #bulldog Archie of #goodwitchesbadwitches - handsculpted, cast, handpainted (by me) in true detailed #stopmotion fashion!! @talltalesproductions

Last time I shared an unposed, badly lit working shot it got me more attention than anything else had in a while, so here we go! It’s old, but it’s another messy working shot. It’s #supersculpey #clay over armature wire... and of course it’s part of #goodwitchesbadwitches @talltalesproductions

When all you want to do is sleep, sleep, sleep...! 😂
This is a production line photo of my beautiful gilded French couches. They belong in Hortense’s world as part of #goodwitchesbadwitches and one of her skunks is taking a nap. This limited edition piece sold out but I’ve got a whole new exciting piece coming out soon (part of the Italian witch Drusilla’s world). @talltalesproductions

I woke up in a good mood today because for the first time in ages I’m completely caught up on orders, commissions, obligations...! So instead of taking an hour break to do something I want and then feeling guilty, today I can legitimately do whatever I want. 😀🤪 I’m going to sketch out and plan the next collectible part of #goodwitchesbadwitches (since there wasn’t much interest in me shooting a painting tutorial video)! It will be part of the world of the Italian witch Drusilla... @talltalesproductions

A snap of the many many Archie bulldogs I had to make before I boxed up all these orders and arranged the USPS pick up (yep, due to COVID-19 the post office collects orders to avoid human contact, which is great for me... but does mean about a week or so delay for you guys because they don’t collect daily...sorry!) Anyway, I’m already starting on the next collectible piece for #goodwitchesbadwitches @talltalesproductions

Hope everyone is staying home and staying safe. 😷 I popped out for a coffee a block from my place to support a little mom and pop place, but I wore my mask! I’m spending the rest of my weekend painting bulldogs and armchairs and I’ll be in touch first thing tomorrow morning with the coupon code for participants of the #talltalescoloringchallenge!! Until then- stay safe, stay home (don’t follow my example) 😂😂 and love from the gals of Tall Tales... @talltalesproductions

Only 5 left of this piece! Available now - link in main bio!! 😀

This hand painted resin figurine “Archie and Armchair” is part of a LIMITED EDITION run of only 50, but, just like my last piece, it’s quite likely I will never release the other 37. I call it a “run of 50” so that I have the choice to create 50 total, but the next batch of this character may not come for a year or maybe never. Depends how much time I have. 🤪 Link to buy this beauty is in the main bio! https://www.tall-tales.com/product-page/archie

Only 13 will be available TOMORROW (Sat) 18th at 8 am!!!

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!!!
