We see them everywhere… store windows, flea markets, interiors, and used as art. They all have a purpose and somehow tell their own story. There is something unique and charming about them. I know they can’t talk, but yet they seem to speak. Saying something about their past, what they’re trying to sell, or simply just being a statement piece. Who are these “things” I am talking about?…
I have a love for them.
Vintage mannequins are my favorite.
Yet, I am drawn to the creative types that make them into pieces of art.
Some sell their found mannequins, and others just can’t give them up.
Me being one of those people.
… and believe me, I had a buyer who would pay anything to have my mannequin.
I just couldn’t do it.
I couldn’t sell her…
Her mannequin was the inspiration for my mannequin.
for a tutorial of how I made her.
Here she is before…
(please ignore the workshop mess – yikes!)
Do you have a mannequin love too?
Are you searching for one?
Do you own one?
See you next with a tutorial…
