"Goddess Hair Brushes"




Here's a peek at some Daisydoll Goddess Hair Brushes I've been working on. They still need a few finishing touches but will be available on Etsy by the end of the week. I took some big "Conair" paddle hair brushes and decoupaged my images on them. Then I surrounded each image with an assortment of beads, sequence and a few pearls of puff paint. Once the embellishments were dry I poured on a two part resin to secure the image and beads which also gave it a nice shiny gloss! I'm contemplating whether or not to wrap the brush handles with ribbon.....what do you think?

After spending the day yesterday working on these hair brushes I'm having Art Journal withdrawals so I must do some work in a journal today!! Have a great Tuesday(O:

  3. These are so cool, what a wonderful idea. I think that with or without the ribbon you have a winner.

  5. Well, I can never decide so I'd have to do some with ribbon and some without. Then I'd have to decide- wrap or braid- so I'd do some of each- then it would be yarn or ribbon- so I'd do some of each- one wonders why I have an inch of dust in my house!

India

Meet India, she is such a treasure! I made from a tea cup I brought back from India last year. She sits 6 1/2 inches tall. The base she sits on is a beautiful square plate I found in Crate & Barrel that matched the tea cup perfectly. India has been embellished with fabrics I also brought back with me. Her hair is a combination of wool and acrylic fibers and she is jeweled with brass accents. India has henna patterns on the souls of her feet and around the tops of her arms and sits in this peaceful position as she meditates. She's waiting to sit in your home and bring you peace.

Meet Mable, she's trying her best to keep her skin glowing. She believes in nourishing her body from the inside out but once a week a good facial mask and cucumbers on her eyes make all the difference in the world. She stand 8 inches tall and would love to sit on the side of your tub or on your dresser. She could spend hours in the bathroom! * Mable is an original one of a kind decorative Art Doll and not meant to be played with as a toy.
