The Tailors Dummie cont....



ok so just in case anyones interested in how far i have got - very very slowly at the mo...............





i have covered the entire thing in images - just adore the zetti thing so have used lots of those images - and given it a good coating of PVA glue - and yes before you ask Mrs Naughty Nicks of Norfolk the craft PVA glue and not my industrial one!!!! From the start I had this idea of it having a metal dress type thingie over - well to give it a rustic look but to be able to see the body but also to see metal... havent a scooby doo why or where I got that idea from. So anyway i have some metal mesh that I have now covered her with and secured around the neck and bottom, as i want to hang 'made' items to. The bottom of the metal mesh i have pulled about to make it look rough as it should look better in the end, rather than a smooth finish, will roughen the top as well. Have already started to make items to hang, but slow going with one arm at the mo.
