Mabel appeared as my birthday post for Amy in september (and I never thought of posting the make,,?!) So here goes.....
I started with this papier mache skull I bought from a craft store for £2.99!
I painted it with white gesso, and collected loads of tissue paper in colours I thought represented flesh tones.
Loved the "cleaness" of the base coat!!
SMILE!!!The top layer is gold tissue, which came out a subtle skin tone when applied over the pink and red.
I left a large area "clean bone" to show the original wound that turned Mabel in the first place(see scratches in the skull from other zombie claws?)
So Mabel needed hair. I had this ball of stranded thread, so I cut lengths and glued to her scalp.
(I call it "doing a Rooney" but you need to be an english football supporter to get that joke)
" A look at the back madam?"A pretty headband/fascinator made from garden wire/fluffy yarn and crocheted flowers....
