Things to Alter DT : Steampunk Cage Doll

Hi all

I decided to have a go at making a cage doll which i did using various pieces of MDF for Things to Alter.  we have a new challenge over on the blog so i would love to see all your makes on there. Here is the link

I used the 3 inc and 6 inch sized circles for the top and bottom and I used the lolly pop sticks to make the cage bars. I trimmed them all down to fit and glued them with my glue gun. I wont lie it was fiddly and i got covered in hot glue but i am pleased with it.

The body was made using the 4inch dress form which i covered in Simply Creative deco mache papers and made a belt using lace and a rusty cog. The head is the Hatter Gorjuss Girl stamp.

I used the flur de lis MDF pieces to decorate the cage

I used the rust effect on both the cage and cogs but dry brushed a little Lagoon Blue pain over to look like peeled paint.

Here are a few progress shots

Thank you for visiting and if you have any questions leave me a comment and i will get back to you

This is wonderful! Love the whole project and the gorgeous blue you have used really makes the project pop.
I have to say, I did laugh at the gorjus head in the doll, it works well with the theme!

❤️ & hugs

Thank you Lisa. I only had the gorjuss girl stamps that had a head big enough to use but my next one will look a bit better
