Mannequin ... well kind of! ... D
Happy Sunday everyone
I hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend. I know I have even though I have slept most of it away lol. Today I am showing you a something or other. Not quite sure what to call it lol.
I started off by making the spool base using a toilet roll innard and 2 circle of chipboard. I mod podged tissue paper all over. For the next layer I used modelling paste mixed with grey paint. I dry brushed black over the top and rubbed a little gilding wax over the texture.
I had some chipboard diecuts of mannequins in my stash. I tissue papered the small ones and wiped wax over the top.
The three larger ones I covered in modelling paste and dry brushed those too. I stuck them together in the form of a triangle. I dabbed red paint over a black leaf vine ribbon also from my stash and draped it over the forms and base.
I attached a small piece of purple mesh as a stiffener beneath the black spider web netting to form the skirt and the veil, attached to the red rose which symbolizes the head on the forms. I covered the small dress forms with wire coils made from the flower stems, painted red.
I suppose I have created a dark version of a wedding dress.
Anyway that is about it for today.
I do hope you like my latest creation and if you don't thats okay too. I am unsure myself lol.
Hugz to all
