Happy Friday the 13th!!
One little FO this week – I finished off my first ever snowflake.
Isn’t it cute.
I also have my PVA glue ready to make it a bit more solid.
In other news my model head arrived today, two weeks earlier than expected!
I have plans for this here head. I don’t like the fact that it’s female; I much prefer those hat forms that are just general head-ish shapes. So first up the nose is coming off. That will probably get messy!
Then I’m going back to summer holidays at my Nan’s house and breaking out the flour and water for some papier mache. That’ll get rid of the facial features and give it a smoother shape.
And the final step will be decopatch with some tissue paper I bought ages ago. It has this gorgeous, subtle sheen to it, which I think will look quite good. Colours yet to be decided, although it will definitely not be blue or pink. Even though I don’t believe in all this gendered colour nonsense, I know I’m in the minority.
All that paper should give it some extra weight as well, so if I ever manage to get outside for photo shoots again it shouldn’t be blown away in the breeze.
Oh and of course mum got me some thread to make the snowflakes from the book she sent!
That’s my week. Anyone else super glad it’s Friday? Got some FOs to share? Let me know in the comments!
