Game of Thrones Tribute

Standard

Hello friends and new Visitors

Game of Thrones came back to our screens last week, one of my most favourite shows I absolutely love it, and to welcome it back I have made this Mannequin. It has been sitting in the cupboard for a year now, just waiting for the return of this program I think haha.

When I first bought her I had in mind a nice Vintage and pink theme, and when she started out she wasn’t really heading in that direction…..so she was drawn to the dark side ( my favourite side to work on after all ) lol

This her in her raw state, she is a paper mache figure, and you can see how she started, I cut strips of paper and made pleats for the skirt, but it just wasn’t working for me, we all make mistakes and I don’t mind sharing mine with you haha, we’re all here to have fun and learn along the way…

I wasn’t happy…. so out came the textured paste and black gesso, and together we went to the dark side.

Firstly, I extended the arms with some drawer knobs, then used white gesso to paint her, rubbed in some Finnabair Art Extravagance textured graphite paste ( I love this ) and then once dry I painted her all over with black gesso.

I chose my elements to add-on, but got carried away, so I didn’t take any pictures before painting, but if you look closely you can see most of them.

Starting with the top, I had a brown plastic lizard type creature and glued on some silver wings to his back, Finnabair metal flower on her arm, two silver metal flowers on her boobs, a Finnabair dragonfly, a hanging beaded earring, around the waist is a blue and silver bracelet.

On the bottom I added some more Finnabair metals, a large brad, paper clip, metal nut, another old earring, some beads, a spring, the cogs are made from kraft card and given and aged look.

Time to bring out the colour

I used Dylusions sprays, Colour Bloom sprays, Lindy Stamp Gang, and Indigo Blu metallics.

Here is the finished dragon
