Step By Step How To Cover A Torso

Hi, Here is a step by step to show you 2 different ways to cover a torso,
1. Ink the stand with an ink pad.
2. Cover the Torso with paper, by applying glue to the Torso, then placing the torso down onto the paper.
3. Cut around the Torso to remove the extra paper, then sand the edges with a file set or sanding block.

4. Make a skirt for the Torso by cutting a strip of paper 2 inches by about 8 inches, more if you want a fuller skirt.

5. Then start folding the skirt like a fan which will create the folds in the skirt.

6. Glue the skirt down to the Torso, and fold the edges of the skirt around the back and glue down .

7. Add a ribbon or lace bow to cover the top of the skirt.

8. And then you can add pearls, bling etc, before adding it to your project.

Torso number 2.
The difference between this torso and the first one is I punched a bit of paper for the top and also used a doily as the skirt, all you do is folder the doily in half and glue it down at the waist, add a bow, pearls etc.
This is the finished Doily Torso which I did for my Scrap Room.

I hope this inspires you to use the Scrapware range of Torso,
Thanks Gilly ox
