The mannequin was given to me  by my bestie when we had a play date at her place
We went through her stash and gathered everything we might want to use on them

I used plasterers tape, gauze, wire and lots of hot glue sticks to drip over it, then added the embellishments - beads, metal flowers, old jewellery and just random bits we had there

Once I was happy with the placement of everything I  painted it with black gesso covering everything including the embellishments

When it was completely dry I used my favourite paint colours and painted randomly over the mannequin let the colours drip and blend in some parts

I added flowers and glass beads to finish it off

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will be back soon xx
