Making A Mixed Media Mannequin, Part 1
Hello! Today I am starting a really big project. Over the month of September I am going to be transforming a plain, old mannequin bust into a sculpture! For the first video, I have embedded some "curiosities" - like tattoo needles, bolts, cords, and so forth. You can really dig through the studio (and junk drawer!) for this one.
Then I used gesso on the entire thing. Seriously, a lot of gesso.
Next up, I used matte medium to "collage" some old sketches I had lying around...
and to round it out - modeling paste and Donna Downey stencils!
Stencils Used in this video:
Artist Gang - Cristin Stevenson - Face
Donna Downey - Heart Texture
Donna Downey - Artist Stencil
