Upcycle me! Overdressed to fabulous!

Posted by on 2012/09/30

Ever see something at a flea market/garage sale and wonder if you can actually do what you think you can do with it? I saw these 3″ overdressed porcelain dolls at a flea market recently and I thought to myself, I wonder if I can get those clothes and icky hair off and make them into cute little faeries? Well, guess what? I did. Here’s a photo of what they used to look like:

Horrible, huh?

This is what they look like now:

After!

After!

After!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These cute little faeries will be making their debut at Utopiacon in October where I am a guest artist and author. If you don’t know what Utopiacon is, you can check it out by following this link. Look for more sneak previews to come as I pack up the inventory!

    LOVE what you did with the little dolls! Being a miniaturist, I often get small bits of junk like that as presents. I’ve been hoarding them at the back of a drawer. Going to take them out and have a new look!

    They look as though you have made them SO much happier!
