Mannequin head with a 26mm doll eye.
To make this guy -
- I purchased Styrofoam head and carved out a hole where his eye was. I then pushed a 26mm doll eye in the hole snuggly.
- I tea stained strips of cheese cloth and let them dry.
- I distressed cheese cloth strips as I layered them on. Every few layers, I painted on/dripped/misted face with watered down craft paints, to accent areas like eye, mouth, etc.
Waiting for him to dry (after some aging), so I can add additional gauze. He is not turning out exactly how I hoped, so let's see if I can pull a rabbit out of my hat make him look a little better. Worried!
