Dress Form Altered MilkTin

Hello!  Today I would like to share with you my Dress Form Altered Milk tin.

For todays project I used the products below:

Sakura Milk Tin
Pink Acrylic Paint
Crayola Air Dry Clay
3D Crystal Lacquer
Cameo Silicone Mold
StazOn Ink

I prepped my milk tin by painting it with white gesso. Then I made a dress form out of air dry clay and placed it on top of my milk tin lid making sure I could still use my lid to take on and off my milk tin. She is a little lumpy and bumpy but I will be covering her.

I let that dry overnight and painted it all pink the next day.

I also decided to make her a hat.


 With my stamps I used un-mounted stamps so I could follow the curve of the tin. If they had been mounted on wood or acrylic blocks it would have been harder to stamp. I stamped with Black StazOn Ink all around the tin.

 Here is the back of the tin all painted and stamped.

 I made a cameo with my silicone mold and poured crystal lacquer into the mold. When it was dry I painted it white.
 My mold had a trim on the cameo that I cut off with scissors. (the trim was originally made with Sakura colored lacquer.) I wasn't sure I was going to use it or not but it looked better without the trim.
 Next it was time to play dress up with my dress form. I used lace pieces that I sewed a simple straight stitch to make her dress. I glued her lace on the top of her hat.

 This is the back of the tin/dress form.

 Here is the cameo I placed on her waist.
