New Torso

I am back to ripping paper! My friend, Minnie at http://herminnie.blogspot.com/asked me to make a torso for her that she could display some of her jewelry pieces on. She wanted something with muted colors. This torso is about 22 inches tall & Minnie, I hope you like what I came up with. My next project.....a Giraffe!Can't wait to start that one! Happy Sunday Everyone!

That torso is mighty cool looking!
What a great idea to hang jewelry from, or scarves.
Do you have a big supply of torsos?
Its very pretty. Can't wait to see Mr Giraffe, or Miss Giraffe.
Have fun,

Thanks to all for the very nice comments. I have purchased torsos from Michaels & Somerset. The one posted today came from a neighborhood store called Pandora's Paintbox. I purchased my larger mannequin (shown in an earlier post) from Ebay. That one is plastic while the others are a paper mache.
