Gift for a grungy goth: Wise old tree oil burner

I wasn’t going to make a post about this, but I’m really proud of how it turned out and I haven’t posted anything on this site in ages. This post won’t be that detailed, though, so if you’re interested in a full how-to guide please leave a comment below! I made this to practice certain paper mache techniques so I can make a series of gifts for my friend Sophie (who’s designing a logo for my shop). The brief was “I want an incense burner, you know my aesthetic”. I decided to go with a woodland gothic theme, and always liked the idea of a tree with a face being used as a candle holder. I was really proud of it because it came out right the first time and there were only a few minor (and fairly rectifiable) mistakes. I hope it brings Sophie as much joy as it’s brought me!

      Thank you, I’m sure the kids will love it! I will upload a guide when I have finished the next in the series. Meanwhile, I’ve posted many other guides on this site!
