The Tin Man with a Treasure in his Chest (Prima Marketing)

Dear crafty friends,

When I saw those shutters in my DT box, I was wondering what I would do with them. They were beautiful, but I really didn't have any idea on how to make them special enough.

I looked closer and I couldn’t help but thinking of a rib cage. So there it was : I’d make a puppet. I named him The Tin Man with a Treasure in his Chest after the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz.

After adhering everything together, I covered everything with black gesso.

I used lots of Art Alchemy Metallique paints. to get that metallique finish. I just love how it turned out.

I used cheap sponge brush to make his arms and legs.

Here is his chest. On the outside, I used paper flowers and a paper clay shape, along with old metal letters.

Inside his chest, I used lots of Mechanicals and chipboards (gears), all covered with black gesso and waxes.

I heard people at Creativation loved him.

I hope my projects inspire you to think outside the box!
