Yep! I'm done with the stirring witch project. At least for this year. She looks good enough to be part of my display. Not bad for my third hand made prop. For the completion of this work, I have some thanks to do. Here we go:
- My wife for supporting my constant babbling about this project;
- My father for providing me with some tips on how to place the wiper motor that makes the head of the witch turn;
- My father and mother in-law for providing me the fabrics and the wood necessary to dress and assemble the witch and the cauldron;
- My brother in-law for giving me the barrel I used to build the cauldron;
- My coworker Billy for giving me the steel bar I needed to fix the stirring stick to the wiper motor of the cauldron;
Thinking of it, there is still one thing missing for this year. A good sound fx I could loop on a mp3 player so the trick'r treater can hear the cauldron bubbling. I found some on the web but they don't loop very well. If anyone knows where I can get one, that would be great.
I also completed sooner this week the skull with a pillar candle that will ornate the table on which the ingredients bottles and the spell book of the witch will be displayed. I have a small problem with the led tea light not being bright enough. But I can surely fix that by buying some on eBay. But since I'm not sure to get them on time for Halloween, I'll keep the cheap ones I bought on the dollar store for this year.
