Art Doll

What do you get when you combine all of the following..??

Well an art doll of course!! 
I began with a regular doll, picked up second hand.  I always use baby wipes to clean up my work space after spraying with glimmermists and I like to recycle these, for just such a project. 
I used the pre-coloured baby wipes to wrap the doll and adhered it with Helmar 450 Quick Dry adhesive.
Using the Helmar 450 Quick Dry adhesive you can manipulate the shape of the wet ones to create a nice shape for your doll.  
Next using Helmar Gemstone Glue I created wavey lines and coated them with glitter to decorate the doll.  I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry adhesive to attach flowers to the front of the doll and then painted the doll with Viva Precious Metal Colour.

Finally, I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry adhesive to attach some lace around the head. and Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue to secure the strips of wet ones to create the skirt at the bottom.
I hope you enjoyed this project and I hope to see you sharing your creations on the Helmar Facebook Page.
Just before I go, I'd like to thank my good friend Linda Baldock for the inspiration in creating this project, she creates many amazing art dolls, and is another fan of Helmar adhesives too!
Till next time
Happy Creating
