"In the Pink" Mannequin - Green Tara

Hi again!  Today I have still another OTP piece to share with you... I've been having the best fun!

I have had this mannequin form for years!  It's just a little papier mache one, and last year I managed to gesso it... and then it sat there until last week, and she finally got painted and dressed!!

I painted her by putting some paint into a spray bottle and diluting it with water, then I sprayed her from the top and let the colour run down.  I've done a few coats with different dilutions of paint to water which gave different colour weights.

And then I dressed her!  The Pearl Trim strands made a perfect necklace, with a trimmed piece from the Silver Diamante Trim at her throat.

She has a double layered Tulle skirt, overlayed with 5cm and 8.5cm Lace and a big Polka Dot Organza Ribbon bow as a bustle.  And then she has a gorgeous bouquet of Silk Flowers with Swarovski Crystals and Roses clustered around a beautiful Satin Rosette at both her waist and feet!
