Another mannequin/paper mache' dress form--I've actually decided it would be fun to work in a series. You can check out #1 in my dress form series here.
Number Two (drum roll, please)...
Inspired by this month's theme at Sandee & Amelie's Steampunk Challenge: "Eyes Tested"\
and the back...
I gave the paper mache' a leather-like effect by crumpling packing paper, inking with distress ink and then mod-podging it to the dress form.
The gold emboss swirls were added by stamping on tissue paper that had been inked with distress stain, carefully cut out and then applied with glossy mod-podge.
The eyes are dolls eyes. I drilled into the form and then sanded to create a hole wide enough to fit & recess them a bit and then glued them in place.
Brass colored brads were added for a more metallic effect.
The base was made from a wooden candlestick, distress ink and mod-podged tissue.
I then secured a skewer and some soft wire to the hole in the candlestick with plaster of paris.
Thanks for stopping by!
