Stirring witch update part 3

The stirring witch project is almost finished (at last)! That project started on May so it's time for it to get to an end. The body of the witch, the cauldron, the stirring mechanism and the stirring stick are done. You can see a picture of the stick below.

Now, I'm working on her hands (picture below too), the forms are made and one layer of paper mache has been applied on it. I'm waiting for them to dry. They will need two other layers of newspaper strips and then I will be putting one or two layers of towel paper to smooth the surface of the hands and give them a more "skinny" look. I doubt I will have enough time to finish them this weekend but they should be done by the end of next week.

Then I will get to the last stage of the project: The dress of the 6' tall witch. An uncle of mine own a fabric store so I guess I will be able to find some cheap black fabric there. Next I'll ask someone in my family to do the stiches for me, I just don't have the talent to do the dress myself and I don't really want to learn how anyway.

Once all this is done, I will be posting pictures of the final result and if time permit it you might even get a video of her in action. I will have to wait late at night to make the movie so my neighbors won't be seeing her before Halloween.

Finally, I'm almost done with the last witch bottle I will be doing this year. The bottle doesn't look old enough to my liking so I need to think how I could make it look older. Any ideas are welcome. You can see how it look like right now in a picture below.

Jug turned out great! And those hands (which are always a pain to make) are looking good.

Coming along nicely! I agree with Ghoul Friday (on many things :) that the jug turned out great!

Those hands look really cool unpainted haha. I would pet my dog with that.
