Tin Can Art Doll
For Mad Mamma Group challenge
Shes made out of a beercan,Pegs for arms and legs,Butterfly diecut piece of tin run through cuttlebug to cut shape,then alcohol inks applied.
Skirt..is stuff used for model railway scenery,then everything painted with metalic acrylics,gold and bronze.
I was a bit worried about sharp pieces of tin,so covered the tin in sticky backed fabric for her dress,then painted over.She was fun to make,kept my mind working at each stage, as it sorted of snowballed as I went along.Oh and her face is airdried clay pressed into the can base.
Just got to paint the back.
Thankyou Margaret,you sure get me going LOL
