Maurine's Nature's Beauty
I took a wonderful class called "Nature's Beauty" from my friend, Fran Parrigan Meehan, on April 30-May 1, 2009.  She gave us a wire dress form,which I am including so you can see what we used,  lots and lots of fabric, cheese cloth, holeless beads and much much more.  We use a product called PAVERPOL which is a water-based household and textile hardener.  We took our fabric and dunked it into the Paverpol, squeezed it out and spread it over our dress form shaping it as we went.  She also added a surprise for us - a little baby that we made which I hid under the skirt. When everything was dry it was hard as a rock and looked like a statue. This is the "Nature's Beauty" that I made.
