Inga may be a little Swedish.
She may also have a little accent.
It wouldn't be surprising if she wears a French maid outift when others are not looking.
Inga doesn't eat that much….she has the smallest waist I have ever seen!
I may throw a box of donuts Inga's way.
Inga used to be plain Jane until I helped her out a bit.
I hope you like the changes.
I started off by spraying a primer over the whole dressform .
I then painted a cream paint over the whole thing.
I needed to do a couple coats.
I then sponged on a thinned out glaze over the whole thing.
I worked in small sections.
I bought Ralph Lauren smoke antique glaze and I would recommend the tea stain instead.
It is lighter and I think would hide mistakes better.
I painted the neck and base a glossy black, used sandpaper to age it and then stamped the neck with one of my Cavallini Paris stamps.
I love how she turned out.
Until I can afford an incredible vintage dressform…Inga will do just fine.
(since this original post I have found an awesome vintage dressform)
