Obsidian Plumpkin by Magweno Obsidian Plumpkin by Magweno

Available here!

This is the Obsidian Plumpkin! Plumpkins are also known as ambling loaf dragons and love to be pampered. They are expert at finding the warmest spot in a house and will lie there for hours soaking up the heat. 


The Obsidian plumpkin likes to think of himself as a romantic goth. He likes watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, listening to The Cure and hanging around in graveyards reciting poetry. Black roses are his favourite snack, and Beetlejuice is his favourite film.

I made this Plumpkin to test the body pattern and construction time, and as such he is being offered at a small discount! If you would like a more colourful or completely customised Plumpkin you can find their custom listing in my Etsy shop.

⋆.⋆°☁ USEFUL INFO ☁ °⋆.⋆
☁ - Plumpkins have been sculpted by me in Super Sculpey, a polymer clay you can bake in a conventional oven. I then made a mould of the original sculpture in rubber so I could cast resin copies. Resin is more durable than polymer clay, and is also cheaper, passing savings onto you!
☁ - Their wings, feet, heads and horns are all cast from resin and then painted with acrylics by me.
☁ - They have wire armatures so they can be gently repositioned into cute poses!
☁ - Their bodies are made from cuddlesoft, a dense, short fake fur traditionally used for making baby blankets - it's that soft!
☁ - They are sewn by me on my little sewing machine, and their manes are polyester fake fur.
☁ - Plumpkins are 100% VEGAN FRIENDLY! That's right! No animal products have been used making these guys.
☁ - They measure (approximately) 7" tall and 10" from nose to tail-tip. 

You will get an embossed certificate of authenticity, a plumpkin postcard (5th photo!) and a sweet gift, all in a special magnetic lidded box with a plumpkins stamp! These guys are highly collectable works of art!

I love how his foot is raised, like he's spotted something interesting and he's considering giving it a quick sniff XD You make them look so alive!

I have four others at discounted prices I'll be putting up over the next few days! A black one with grey mane; green and blue with orange horns; dark purple with silver horns; and a red one with red horns. 

You can see them here: magweno.deviantart.com/art/Plu… The one on the top of the pyramid, one on the second from the top row on the right and the one on the bottom row two over from the black plumpkin. The red one didn't make the acrobatics show :(
