Last month I joined in with "Alter It Monthly", and the theme was Dolls... & I really enjoyed playing along (you can see my first altered doll HERE) so I thought for this month's THEME I would also alter a Bratz doll, though this one turned out a little too cute for my liking, LOL. I forgot to take "before" photos, but I'm sure you get the idea, and as a bonus, this one had hair!
This is where she will live, we've had the large glass container for many years, & have added little treasures from beachcombing trips, so I think she will feel right at home... I began the alteration by removing the doll's make up, then applied a mossy green acrylic glaze to the body, adding acrylic paints in varying colours as well as KG and Stickles to the hair. The fish tail was made by covering a "sandwich" of cardboard cut into shape with masking tape, then painted over with acrylic paint, and lots of KG and Stickles were added for shine and texture : )
The facial features were added with ZIG Signature pens, the bust was covered with starfish punches cut from scraps of watercoloured paper. As I said, her face looks too cute for my liking, but I think she makes a lovely mermaid...I hope you think so too, thanks for visiting : )
