Show and Tell


I just finished making this bust for a friend of mine who plans to sell jewelry on Etsy. I pieced the bust together, and shaped it myself!! I really like the way she came out, and I decided to make her a button necklace to send with her... You can read more about how I made her on my blog. MineToThine.com

Oh boo! It looks like I am to late for the swap. :( I just love buttons too.
Thanks for visiting me.

Hi Rachel!
what an amazing bust!! I just love her! The button necklace is fabulous too, but I think she is just charming! Is she paper mache?

I did a few things to her... she is covered (over the top of blended paper mache) in more of a decoupage. I used papers from a dictionary I bought for that sort of thing. She's foam Styrofoam on the inside, with a layer or paper mache, a layer of joint compound, and THEN the layer of decoupage.
