Stolloween…the dark side of papier mache

Ok Halloween fans, today I’ve got a good one for you.  Whether you’re a crafter, home-haunter, or just love cool Halloween stuff, Scott A. Stoll’s creations  should be right up your alley.  I stumbled on his work earlier this year and decided that you might like to hear about it.

Scott A. Stoll is a self-taught artist born and raised in the sleepy town of Reed City, Michigan and during his teenage years developed a deep passion for science fiction and horror.

After graduating from Ferris State University with a bachelor’s degree in Television
Production he continued his love for the genres and started to play with papier-mache as a means to create his own visions of all things fantastical.

Today Stoll is an award-winning papier-mache artist specializing in Halloween related subject matter and continues to push the boundaries of the papier-mache medium.  His work is typically characterized by the use of recycled and commonly
found materials.

I have included some pictures of his latest batch of “Tortured Pumpkins” here.  I think you’ll agree that they’re delightfully creepy.  Scott offers these for sale in his Etsy shop.  Each one is unique and comes with a “stem tag” featuring their name, date, and signature of the artist.

Not only does Scott make some wonderful creations but he also shares many of his tricks of the trade.  On his site, Scott offers tips and tutorials for making spooky creations using his method.   Stop by and check them out.
