Altered Indigoblu Mannequin

mannequin 1


It has been a while since my last blog post, too long, i think, but I have been busy 🙂

Today I have an altered Indigoblu mannequin /dressform to share with you…. this will be coming along to all the Indigoblu demonstrations I will be doing in the coming months.

mannequin 2

There is a cool technique used on the mannequin, whereby you stamp tissue in the ink and stamps of your choice, then apply it to the mannequin with slap it on matte..

mannequin 4


I have also used the large butterfly stamp with megaflake stamped onto vellum twice and attached them back to back to give it wings that look good from both sides..

mannequin 3


I also added various trims and embelishments from my wee craft shed to finish her off..

mannequin 6

I hope you like today’s project, now I have tackled doing one, I quite fancy making more 🙂

There will be a full supply list at the bottom of this post if you fancy having a go at making one for yourself 🙂
