a work in progress...decoupaged display head

i've been working on a detachable mannequin head for a potential client (a well known London store!).  she (or he) doesn't have a lot to say unless you like a good read!  I can see her working with one of my table top mannequins decoupaged in the same papers and dsipaying hats, scarfs etc, etc. 

i have to admit that she gave me a bit of a scare when I started work one morning.  i wasn't expecting to see a "person" looking at me as I walked into my sewing room. she is a little spooky, don't you think?

a big thank you for all your lovely comments on passed posts.  i do try and repay the kindness but time just keeps whizzing by......

ooh! it looks v. interesting .. do you have to strip them first (so to speak?) .. also.. i notice you have an industrial sewing machine .. I am thinking of getting one as I need a new machine ... are there any NO NO's I should consider?? xx

oh Lucy I do so like these- you know me, if anything stands still long enough (ha! mannequins!) it gets decoupaged in old newspaper!
(Haven't seen my husband for ages...;))

Will you put a glaze over the top or leave it au naturel?

Where does the time go? Don't know but it goes faster than it ever did before

I love decoupage! The head looks great, although it would probably scare me too if I walked in one morning all bleary eyed!
