Hello ladies and gents , nice to see you here . I promised a step by step help for the Dryad number three, here it is . If you have questions ask me :) This is part one so have fun with collecting the material :)
Part 2 and 3 is now below too :) I promised you that it will be ready today but its not , because i had not enough time to let it dry , so the last peaces on the left corner and a few birds will become later .
At this moment this is the result from my "Devil dryad "...
1. Canvas 30cm / 30 cm
3. texture paste
5. Spray play with your colours , only red and black are necessary for the dept)
8. dry branches
9 .Barbie doll
10.peace of a old curtain ( for the dress )
13. Viva Inka gold in different colours (fot the finish touch )
Make a background with the stencils just as in the woods and dry it .
Put everything in gesso and then play with your colours , spray as long as you like and when you are seatisfied dry it .
Now stick the branches flat together with the barbie doll , put this in gesso too and colour it in your own taste.
Now paste the whole on the canvas and use some more branches to let it look like a wood.
In Dryad 1 an 2 i used some cheesecloth for the fairy look and a little peace from a old curtain for the dress. ( you don't need it if you have "Ken ")
Stencil the background and colour it
create new feets
Paste it all together
Use your gluegun to create new muscles
colour everything and after that put a little bit gesso on it again
Paste it on your canvas and use than eveything you had at home .I used some old toys from my children , some butterflys , a old walnut i found in a second hand shop , some little peaces from potpourri and so go on.
Still WIP ...
