This dress form was a mess when I found it. It had holes and rips everywhere. I'm not sure how old it is probably not an antique but who cares. To fix it up I decided to do paper mache'. There are layers and layers of glue and paper on it. It was a real dress makers form with the moving parts. I closed that all up with the paper mache'. I was really into mosaic at the time and thought about covering up with broken china and tile. As you can see I did not do that style of art. I wanted it to be mixed up, more of a mixed media pieice. I used tissue paper, ephemera, broken china, scrap paper. I'm not sure if it is finished..... I just got tired of working on it.. I wanted to add some fringe on the bottom. I can still add to it. That's the beauty of art.
It's been stashed away in my garage for the past couple of years. Glad I pulled it out. Now where to put it???
