Here is a frame I made and a statue I re-conned. The lady was a really bland statue i found in an op shop, along with this frame. I covered the back piece of the frame in a jacquard type fabric, which I embroidered to say 'mi familia' - my family. Which is me, my boyfriend and our parrot. I made the skeleton family out of clay and painted them. The lady i just painted over her features. I like buying old religious statues and painting them DOTD style  Grin

Thanks for looking!!

Love it!  Grin

I've been wanting to re-face some stuff in that style. What kind of paints did you use for the statue? I wonder if I need model paints or if I can make acrylics work.

I like that the little 3-D elements are tiny compared to the frame; makes them stand out.  Wink  Cute idea!
