Paper Towel Dresses

The start idea. Start with a vaguely shaped pattern piece and moisten with glue. Push into place gently and allow to dry.

This was the first attempt, I painted the dried dress with acrylic paint. OK, but I still wasn't happy with the result.

The dresses in the background are both made from paper towel and painted.

The idea was not mine. I asked Rita from Germany how she made the clothing in one of her vignettes and she said she used paper. Of course, I can't find that scene now, she has so many projects.!
Her website is AMAZING! Click on the doors to open.

This is the actual picture I asked Rita about.
