Watered down the glaze and applied with a wet towel . . .
After the first coat, it just wasn't looking grungy enough for my taste, so I let the first coat dry and applied more glaze.
As mentioned in the previous post, I did the faux rust technique on the underside of the form. Well, I wasn't pleased at the outcome - nothing like my canvas sample board. So, I decided to stick with the grungy look (for now).
So, here she is! I would like to introduce you all to . . . oh no, I can't come up with a name for her . . .
Thought I would dress her up just a little more with one of my coffee filter roses. I made this one from used coffee filters, rather than the ones from new filters that are watercolored . . .
So since I haven't come up with a name yet, wanna help me? If so, and the following prize is something you might like to have, submit your choice for my manne's name - here on this post by this Friday, September 5th.
I will consult with my son (you know, the one that was using my mannequin as a hat rack!) on the winning name, and announce the winner bright and early Saturday morning.
Please be sure I have a way to contact you via e-mail if you are the winner!
This is the give-away prize: A paper mache mannequin I painted, collaged with pattern tissue and other papers, sealed with Diamond Glaze and then added a faux rust metal heart . . .
