A unique and fun way to re-purpose an old doll. I have the set of three in my home and they never go unnoticed! We will complete one bust in class but you might want to purchase more dolls while at the thrift store!

1 plastic/pearl crown, 1 ready to finish wood base/stand, 4-10" hot glue sticks

12"-14" cloth body doll with porcelain head/hands (I buy these at the thrift store for $1-$5), full size hot melt glue gun, off white upholstery thread/needle, sharp scissors, wire snips, Super Goop or E-6000 glue.
Paints: Desired color for base/stand and eyes, pale flesh (I use Golden Titan Buff), black, white, raw umber, pale rose, triple thick clear gloss.
Paint brushes: Fine detail brush, 1/2" flat.

Desired embellishments, such as: rosary beads, cross, rhinestone necklace/pins, wings, etc.
