Witch's Kitchen

Post by HalloweenMelanie » Sun Aug 31, 2008 4:35 pm

I'll start posting pics of my Witch's Kitchen progress on here. I'm not putting it up on Myspace until I have it more or less finished. :) But for you all...here you go...

My collection of jars and bottles:

Image

The two shrunken heads I did a few months ago, and underneath, two new heads that are currently drying. These will be for a jar of Garden Gnome Heads:

Image
Image

Chicken bones that I dried and bleached:

Image

Apple peels, for a jar of Burned Heretic Skin:

Image

Small plastic snakes, for Snake Oil:

Image

These will be soaked and pushed all together for a jar of Sea Monster Embryos:

Image

I don't know yet whether I might use these newts for something:

Image

Cashews to be split in half, for Werewolf Claws:

Nice. Use the newts!!
Halloween wraps fear in innocence,
As though it were a slightly sour sweet.
Let terror, then, be turned into a treat...

Thanks, RDM. I have to think of a really cool/fun name for what they would be for my witch's kitchen! Can't be Eye of Newt since it's the whole newt...hmmmmmmmm...

For a witch`s kitchen I would get fake goo and put it in the glass cups and vase`s and then get rubber snakes and spider webs put the spiders in the webs and put the snakes in the web to.I would put fake witch spell books and put them on the table like that. Then put :D fake skulls all over and make the table cloth black with some siper webs!!

I foundthis out last year. If you soak a regular hilighter marker(most colors will work) in your specimen jars overnight, then take the marker out right before you present them, the water will glow under black light.
I used several last year and it was a really cool effect.

It looks great, I especially loved those potion vessels. It think it would be awesome to serve cocktails in them

Tonic water glows under black light.

And if you drink enough vodka tonics You too will be lit.
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.
