Making a Mannequin to Hold Jewelry5:30:00 AM
When I found this lovely lady she was a nobody.
Well actually she was just a body... found on the shelf at the thrift store.
I knew with a little work I could make her gorgeous after all I did a good job with the last mannequin I found on the side of the road and updated.
The body of this mannequin is beautifully textured and hard like a cast. I painted it with a quick coat of paint to clean it up.
To make her a true mannequin, I needed to give her a stand and a finial at the top.
I used a pewter candlestick for the base and a wooden knob for the finial on top.
I painted both with Fusion Mineral Paint Metallics in Brushed Steel. The paint made the base and the finial match perfectly.
I gave her a ribbon and a metal number tag around the neck.
I'm giving this beautiful body a new purpose in life as a jewelry holder similar to the ones they sell at Pottery Barn.
She's beautiful and available in the Homeroad cupboard at
32 MacArthur Ave.
