Cauldron Spotlight

Did a test with a light hidden within my iron cauldron. This would look really neat outside with the cauldron slightly buried under leaves.

Looks great....a really nice effect and an excellent way to hide the light too.

Bet it would look really great with all the shadows from leaves and sticks and stuff on the ground.

I think this would look neat with any color really. Blue WOULD look neat.

I wanted to do something similar on my front plot of yard. I envisioned a slightly larger witch looking up to the sky, arms raised high as in summoning the gods. Her hands are carved wood. She stands in front of a pot. The amberish light from the pot and fire pit light her up. The fire pit is a ring of skulls.

On the ground are skelly groundbreakers made up of leaves and twigs. Most are reaching towards her but others struggle to release themselves from the ground.

I think it would look even better if it were just at the edge of the light fall off, so that the light color would blend more with the base colors of the witch. Skeletal crone emerging from the inkwell. Aniset.

Indeed.

That looks sooo creepy! I'd really like to know more about that skull too! I read that it's a paper mache skull modeled from a store bought plastic one? Is that correct? I've never seen a store bought plastic skull that looks THAT creepy so whatever you did with it paper mache-wise is chilling! Do you have pics of the skull before and during the mache process? INSPIRATIONAL!

That's actually a store-bought skull from walgreens' Halloween aisle. It was cheap and incredibly detailed. Figured I'd buy a few and have some fun with them. My recent corpses on the shop use the mache mold approach, but it's fun to use a plastic skull now and again.
