Antiqued manni

I don't know if I've mentioned how much I love mannequins before. If not - I love mannequins!  I have all sizes and types and I love paper mache manni's to upcycle!


This one is grungy and vintage and so yummy - I want a life-size version! I used a chain around the waist and attached a clock embellishment and a mini frame with an old pic. There's lace and a jewel at the neck and some metal embellishments at the bottom.




On the back, there's a flower at the waist and old buttons.




My favorite part is the bottom! I used plaster cloth cut into strips and then dipped in water. They distress beautifully and are so raggedy!


I really need to use more plaster cloth in my mixed media. It can be cut, torn, scrunched up, and manipulated so easily! Give it a try in your next project!  I'm entering her at Arty Divas and Morgan's ArtWorld!
