Magical Miniatures

If you love all things magical and miniature you are in the right place.

About me and my blog

I am a mother of three and work on a market stall. In my free time I love to make magical miniatures. It all started with my gran who spent hours when I was a child teaching me how to make do. This entailed mending and fixing and making things from scratch. My dolls house consisted of cardboard boxes with windows cut out, beautifully decorated and all furniture hand made. We sat for hours making clothes and accessories for my dolls to the envy of my friends that all had the same generic stuff. So thanks gran for the inspiration. I hope you enjoy my art and my blog. Thanks for visiting.

29 Inch hanging witch

I have been wondering about enlarging my hanging witch. I have made both 1 inch and 7 inch witches so far but I fancied a big one. So at 29 inch she is the last of the sizes of witch I will create. Although not entirely miniature she is still much smaller than a real witch! also she holds a captured 1 inch caged witch in her hand. Again I used polystyrene for her head. Bullion for her hair, feathers and ribbons for her gown and her body is again wire based then bound in cotton rags. Her broom again is wood and string for the brush head.
Round her neck she wares a pewter spider.
This witch has a hat too. Made from card and covered in lace.
