dress form reveal...

she is done!!!!
I finished aging my dress form
(click here to see before)

this is the look I was going for...

and this is her all finished!!!!

after all the the coffee staining,
I went to the fabulous Graphic Fairy and picked out a graphic,
I used the Citra Solv method and transfered the image onto the dress form...

I wanted the caged bottom look,
I had some vintage wire fencing and since she is made of foam,
I just pushed it in...

I painted the wood black and distressed it...

added a number to her...
the great thing about her,
is since she is made of foam you can pin things to her...

and there she is!!!
all antiqued!!!
I love her....
I am going to sell her,
I just can't keep everything...
I better stop looking at her or she will just find a corner somewhere...
I am joining these parties...

  3. Excellent idea!! Forms helps you to produce high quality products, because it makes analysis easily.
