Steampunk mannequin


Just a quick one i'd thought i would share with you my steampunk mannequin i made a couple of months ago, i don't have it now as my sister wanted it lol :) i didn't realise that i hadn't post it on here i've since bought another one i just need to get around to decorating know how it is!

This is what i did: for the skirt i used some fabric i got with some flowers that i had received, so i folded the fabric in half and put a running stitch to create a waist band, i then got my heat tool and burnt holes in it...this was great fun but  i did have to control myself lol. The flowers are made from metal foil and i used Tim Holtz tattered floral dies for the flowers, i then used an embossing folder to add more texture along with a bit of alcohol ink, i then shaped the flowers and stuck them on with a hot glue gun. the belt is a bit of chain that i acquired from somewhere!?! and attached some metal embellishments onto it. the wings are made from metal plumbing tape and used the patch work metal technique with alcohol inks. the other embellishments i had picked up along the way....the ball chain around the neck is a bit that was left over from some blinds we had fitted so that also got a splash of alcohol inks on them too!

Thank you for stopping by and looking
Take care Elx
