Max's Bone Shoppe Halloween Shrine

I am a big fan of Craftster, an indie crafting site, and love participating in crafting swaps on there. I made this for a vintage Halloween swap, and Max the dog belonged to my swap partner. This is easily one of my favorite things that I have made in a while.

This piece was made from a wooden shadow box that I had in my stash for some time. The background is scrapbook paper, and the rounded stage is made from heavy, velvety scrapbook paper.

Here's a close up of Max. I sculpted him from paper clay, which is a light, airy clay that dries very quickly. I painted him with acrylics, and the paper collar is made from some of my favorite Halloween fringe.

Some more detail -- Max is an excellent sales dog. The bones are also made out of paper clay.

Here's a look at some of the more high-end bones. The container they are sitting in is the lid to a Tropicana bottle that I covered with gold gilding paint.
