MORDRED VonFRANKENMACHER



As promised, Mordred finally makes her appearance! She likens herself to a Divine Sorceress, but she's really an old country, out-of-practice witch who bumbles spells so often, she had to write one on her heart shaped base to remember it.



Mordred is sculpted from paperclay, painted with acrylics, washes, and antiqued in a fine deep green. Her apparel is by Omar; a smock of stars on blue to match her hat. Her apron is embroidered on tea dyed Osnaberg and is well stocked with divining rods, spices, berries, and a rusty star wand. She carries her illuminatory in one hand, while the other clutches her broom. She's got knobby knees and bumpkin boots, and stands on a rustic black heart with her favorite spell: "Eye of newt, toe of frog, tail of rat, hair of dog, skin of snake, and lizard tongue, with this spell make me young!"

She's a hoot of a hag! I hope she gives you a giggle too!
