Surround Grandma with Love!



This is the second of a series of projects 
made out of Kitchen Clay.
After you have made a batch,
use a sculpey mold and make faces.
Of course you can also make your own face
by making an oval and painting the face in.
Bake the face in an oven toaster
making sure it does not burn.

 When face is hard, paint it with acrylics.

 Put some shading.

 Here is the frame I will use to display my doll.
You may use the backing of the frame,
cardstock, or a background you've made yourself.
I like painting backgrounds and keep a stack of it,
 so that is what I'll use.

 Choose fabrics for the clothes and veil of your doll.
It should match the background you've chosen.

 Try out the cloth and see how you would like to arrange 
the veil....


 ...and the dress.
Cut out a toilet paper roll to form the base of her dress.
Wrap the cloth over the toilet paper roll base
and attach with a glue gun.
 Make one arm out of the toilet paper roll
and cover partly with cloth, 
leaving the end uncovered to show her hands.


 Here she is with her veil and dress.
Put a bunch of flowers in her hand.

Then I wrote a quotation around her.
"Mothers hold their children's hands
for a short while,
their hearts forever."
I have learned to like my handwriting,
and I hope you like your writing too!
Handwriting adds a lot of character to a project! 
Instead of a quote, you can also
surround her with your children's names
to personalize it.

September 9 is Grandparents'Day.
This can be a great gift for grandma, don't you think?
Write all her grandchildren's names
to surround her with love!

Would you like to try making this in time
for Grandma?
Tell me in the comments if you'd like
a chance to win a couple of faces!
