I finished the makeover on the Geisha bust that I posted last Thursday! I was going to paint her Day of the Dead style, but in the end, decided to keep her alive and pretty. ;) I used paper clay to fill in her imperfections and eyes (since I wanted to paint them closed), primed the entire piece, and painted her. She has butterflies floating up her neck, and a little pearl earring. :) What do ya think?
My feature find for this week is this jewelry chest, made from solid wood and hand crafted. Love it! It's so pretty now, I'm wrestling with painting over it. On the other hand, one of its feet is broken, and it does need some restorative love. It measures 18" tall. How much you ask? $4.89, my friends! :)
This piece will be a pretty involved project, with sanding off old paint, sawing off the feet, then replacing the feet. That's all before priming and painting...phew! I'll post pics when I get it done, though!
