Today I am going to show you how I created this beautiful lady. I got a lot of inspiration by watching Linda Ann Smith's videos on creating figures with Paverpol. She does an amazing job creating figures.
I wanted to use a glass for the base so I began my armiture by folding wire to form the head, neck and arms, and then I pushed the wire through the cork stopper.
Next, I wrapped tin foil around the wire to create the figure. I continued adding tin foil until I was happy with the result.
I wanted to give her a full dress, so I painted Transparent Paverpol on a paper towel. I wrapped the paper towel around the glass, creating the dress.
I adhered the paper towel tightly to the top of the glass but allowed it to be free as it cascaded down the glass. I also allowed the paper towel to flow along the bottom. Allow to dry 24 hours before continuing. This allows the paper towel to harden in the free flowing shape.
Next I cut a t-shirt into strips. I dunked the strips in Transparent Paverpol and then wrapped the strips around the figure. I continued adding strips until I was happy with the result. Allow 24 hours for the piece to dry before continuing.
So I think she is beautiful so far, but I still have a lot of work to do. Please stop by in 2 weeks and see my final beautiful lady reveal.
Thanks for stopping by today.
