I am glad that I finally got this project finished it has been sitting for quite a while as I was not sure in which direction I was going to take it. But here she is in all of her tarnished glory.
Firstly I decorated a wooden placemat using tissue paper and card embossed with gears. I then painted the whole thing black and dry brushed with Lumiere Pewter and Viva Inka Gold Copper.
I made the wings using a wire armature covered in tissue paper. I love this method as it gives so much texture to the wings, I then glued the wings to the placemat. Over the top of the wings I glued a paper mache torso that I made and I painted it black. The opt of the torso was covered with a sand texture paste and painted black. I then took some used baby wipes, ripped holes in them and using black Paverpol I draped them over the bottom half of the torso. I used pieces of doily dipped in black Paverpol over the top of the baby wipes. While that was drying I added wooden and chipboard gears around the torso. Once everything was dry I drybrushed with Viva Inka Gold Copper, Lumiere Copper and rusty paint. To finish I added an old earring to the front of the torso to add a bit of bling.
I am really happy with the way this piece turned out and I am entering her in the
