100% Pure Silk
One very inexpensive source for 100% pure silk is the Trift store. I am planning to put some fancy clothes on the Dollar Doll with some of this silk. La Calavera Catrina is The Elegant Skull, after all. I will also make a nicho for her. I hope to finish this little side project before Los Dias de Muertos, which are celebrated on November 1st and 2nd.
I have taken this Calavera Catrina as far as I'm going to take it. She got a fancy hat, I painted the roses with Rambling Rose nail polish, and painted a rose and buds at the top of the nicho. The fancy hat is made from an old shoulder pad and the collar from one of the silk blouses, bunched together. I really need to get some smaller paint brushes because all the ones I have are too big to do any detail work.
