Lions, & Tigers, and Bears, Oh My!

Just got finished baking the Wizard from the Wizard of Oz...whatta evening I have had!  I feel that my newest clay set is complete, yet my sister mentioned, "You should make a winged monkey, too."

I am thinking this project will culminate with me creating the entire Emerald City!  So far in the past two days I have created:  Dorothy (two versions- the first one I didn't like so I had to make another), Scarecrow, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion,Wicked Witch, Glinda, the Wizard (who I had also forgotten-the namesake of the story, sheesh!), Toto, and the 3 boys from the Lollipop Guild, or as I call them the Lollipop Kids.

So it's been a busy time!  Tomorrow I have TONS of photos to take, but first I need to think of a backdrop.  I may have to create a yellow brick road and a rainbow, etc...I knew this was going to be a big one.  But it is so much fun and I just love that movie and the books.  I am not creating the backdrop in clay- if someone wants to special order that, that would be another project in itself.

Maybe in the future I can create more characters, but for now I think I am done.  I will see how I feel about the monkey tomorrow.  The monkey would look cute with the witch! I will post the photos on Etsy as soon as I am able- may not be til Friday because I am visiting some friends and may run out of time.  But for now, though, it's simply goodnight and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....
