I used a Jean Paul Gaultier glass perfume bottle for the torso, although it had its own challenges, working with glass, in terms of attaching things and not wanting to scratch the paint, and its weight.
I wasn't sure if I would make a mess of making my own wire hoop skirt and I also wasn't sure if it would be self-supporting. I had some bird cages in my stash but I wanted something I could attach around the waist of the glass bottle. If you want to make one, there is a video on the challenge intro post on PaperArtsy but I hadn't seen this unfortunately as we work two weeks ahead, but I love that Linda Petersen project! I'm glad my doll stood up though so at least I managed it!
I would love to see what you make for the challenge!
Oh you are SO clever! I love your doll. That hooped skirt is an absolute triumph. LxReplyDelete
She's gorgeous Lucy!ReplyDelete
Well done, Lucy! She is an ingenious invention! Wonderful use of an empty perfume bottle and that hooped skirt is so very pretty! I could have used her as a visual aid when I was teaching Victorian literature - that petticoat is pretty authentic! xxReplyDelete
Looks great Lucy !ReplyDelete
Fantastic project Lucy! So fun and creative!ReplyDelete
I can see why you had to make two dolls, these are so addictive! Great idea to use Frida as the face. :)ReplyDelete
