Joe Scarano gave us a very special treat for Bewitching IV, he let us into his studio with a visual tour through every step of his brilliant Candy Corn Goblin creation. We got to see the development from sketch to finished product over many weeks, and we are excited to share with you!

Follow this amazing visual journey of Joe’s from the original sketch design to sculpt, mold making, and final painting of his Candy Corn Goblins.

You can see them in all their glory when Bewitching IV opens at Stranger Factory on Friday, Oct 10 at 6PM.
