Hey everyone--forgive the mediocre pictures in this post; I can't get my camera to capture this piece properly...oh well
Here's something I made recently: a bald goddess/icon to watch over my apartment...made her using all thrifted supplies, plus a small mini canvas I bought:
About 6 months ago, I was very obsessed with art dolls while I was doing the Junker Jane Swap.
So, I was buying up any dolls, or parts of dolls, that "spoke to me" at the thrift store.
Here's a pic of the "bald goddess" when she was still a tiny, ugly little ornament/doll I bought at Goodwill:
(she's the doll in the middle)
So, I tore her clothes off
removed any decorations, and found that beneath her tiny Dylon wig, she had a beautiful bald head.
After rotting away in my "to-do" bin for several months, she was grabbed out, wrapped in ribbon, embellished with paint and found objects, and glued to a small canvas:
The other materials I used on the canvas include:
--a giant bag of mardi-gras type plastic bead necklaces (hot glued down to form the background "mosaic")
--gold spray paint
--acrylic spray paint
--a small tin baking dish (hammered flat on one side to form her "halo")
--beads, copper paint, wire edged ribbon, decorative ribbon around the edge, etc
--pipe cleaner to "bulk out" the legs
--wooden beads for the feet (each toe is a bead)
--HOT. GLUE. high setting for strong bond.
Basically, this piece was all about hot glue
