This was super simple and super fun. I won’t say that it was super-fast, but totally worth it!
I have a bit of a Dress Form obsession and this gal needed a face-lift..or rather a body-lift.
I used VAX to apply old sheet music. It really helps to prep the fabric by soaking it with watered down VAX first, and then brush a generous amount of VAX on both sides of the paper. Gently smooth into place..I use a brush and my fingers. It is a bit like working a puzzle and it is time consuming, but I found it to be very therapeutic.
After she was completely covered and dried I mixed a few drops of Hazelnut reVAX to VAX then brushed all over to seal her. The touch of hazelnut reVAX worked great for aging the pages.
Idea!!! Stencil a shabby design on her. Follow us on Facebook to see whats next.
Now go make something beautiful!
I think I have it down to a science now. Next one will be even better and I’ll use vintage sewing patterns.
