Making a Mannequin to Hold Jewelry

5:30:00 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 cute 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.

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 bringing this beautiful body back to life as a jewelry holder similar to the ones they sell at Pottery Barn.
