Altered Torso

Hello, today I share this cute altered Torso I created using some Flowers and Embellishments to give it the finishing touch.

Material Supply List
Craft Sheet
Glue Gun
Artist Palette
Finnabair Heavy Gesso
Finnabair Modeling Paste
Prima Marketing Tea Stain Spray
Acrylic Paint (Beige/Mint/Pink)
Plaid Folk Art Stencil
Flowers & Embellishments

1. Lets start... Dressing her up!

Add modeling paste to the the bottom section of the Torso using the stencil with the word (LOVE). Leave to dry.  Use some cloth to cover the top and bottom sections as per the picture using the gesso to do this. Remember that the back of the Torso also needs to be covered with the cloth as per the picture below.
Take another small piece of cloth. Tear into a strip and make a little bow to be 
fitted at the back.

2. Painting

Pour the 3 different paint colours into an artist palette. I used an artist palette because the paint will be mixed together in the end and thus preventing them from being spoiled in their containers. 
Paint the Torso using the mint paint covering her completely especially between the crinkles of the cloth. Leave to dry.
Once dry, dry brush over the mint colour with pink and then with beige and then again with mint using the same brush mixing up the colours. Repeat till satisfied with the blending of the colours.

3. Tea Stain Spray

Once the Torso is completely dry, gently spray the front and back with the spray.
It should have a shimmer...

4. Flowers and Embellishments to give it the finishing touch!

Add the flowers and chains using the glue gun. I added some more chain and flowers 
that are not in the picture above.

5. Finally she is complete...

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial! 
Thanks for stopping by! Leave some Love!

Happy Scrapping!
