A little over a week and Halloween night will be upon us! So I've listed this 5x7 Beeswax Collage on canvas board for a three-day auction on eBay. It will end this weekend, which means you are sure to get it before the big night!! Check out my listing on eBay here and all the other fabulous offerings from my fellow EHAG artists here. You're sure to find many "treats" before the trickery of October 31!
If you'd like to LEARN how to create a beeswax collage on your own, I'm teaching "The Buzz about Beeswax," Saturday, November 15, 2008, from 10 am - 1 pm, at My Daughter's Wish, in Pleasant Hill, CA. The cost is $45. You'll learn how to apply the dreamy affect of beeswax to your art, gifts and memory making by making a fall collage (not pictured). Click here for registration information and a photo of the piece you'll be working on.
Happy Haunting...Iva Wilcox

3) Glue your cardstock brim to a scrap of muslin. When dry, cut it out.
4) Stitch up a triangle from muslin. Make the bottom edge about the same measurement as the outside of the brim.
5) Turn your triangle inside out and stuff lightly with a paper towel.
6) Holding your triangle like an ice cream cone, feed tip of hat through brim (cloth side toward tip of hat) til the cone is a nice fit all around. Then snip down to brim every quarter inch or so.
10) Using acrylic paints, paint your hat however you like. This little witch is partial to teal. After drying, I lightly sand and then stain with burnt umber. When that's dry I sand again, and add a little hat band.
You can get as creative as you want. No one says witch hats have to be black. Why not polka dots? Or beaded? Maybe her hat band is glittery, or covered in silk flowers. So many possiblities!
Now you try!

Depending on the growing season, the pumpkins can weigh several hundred pounds. Professional as well as non professionals carve in the competition. There is live music, hayrides and tons of food. My favorite part is on the first night when the carving has stopped and the lights go off. It is a truly magical place to be!
If you are in the area on the first night stop by and find me.

It's that time of year when Halloween enthusiasts look for fall folk art shows to add unique pieces to their collections in addition to those found on eBay. And in my part of the world, the Tinsel and Treasures Folk Art Show, Sept. 13, is where you'll find some of my All Hallows Eve offerings. Above is a sneak peek at what this EHAG member is cooking up in my San Francisco Bay area studio. Alas, I am the only EHAG member in the show, but that doesn't mean you won't find exceptional art from the other six artisans. Vintage whimsies, unique dolls, jewelry, crowns and paper mache collectibles are to be found at this first annual show in Downtown Danville, CA. Head on over to the website to read all about the show and sale, or stop by my blog to see what other spooky goodies I will have available. Fall is in the air!
