Dark Angel - Doll Assemblage


I learned alot about making solid connections when I was assembling this doll. It is somewhat heavy due to the old rusted hardware I used. The one thing that I wasn't expecting was the change in color of the rusted hardware pieces. The medium I sprayed over the doll changed from a beautiful natural rust to a very dark rust.
I can still live with the results!



I love the idea of the arms not being attached to the body and so I left them moveable, however, they cannot be removed from the piece.

Absolutely adore this piece Carla! And actually love the colour the sealant turned your 'rusty bits'.

Thanks Jen!!
Yes, that sealant was a bit of a surprise! I love leaving things in their natural state, but feel inclined to add that sealant. Just figuring out which one to use is a bit frustrating.
