Altered Sardine Cans

My 2 cans all set for the next layer.

Christmas: The can has several layers of gesso, followed by red acrylic and then gold acrylic paint.  The paper inside the can is from my secret swapper, I do love all things spotty..

NON Christmas:  The can was covered in pages from a latin text book, then a layer of scrunched up tissue paper was added over this.  The dolls head is attached to a long screw, this is not secure as I think it will be easier to play with loose.

Girls feel free to get weird and wacky with these.

All packaged and ready for posting tomorrow.


  1. I love the dolls head. Mine is almost ready to go just finishing it now. It's hard to stop though so I'll look forward to working on yours instead.

  2. Looking good! I love the doll's head one too - looking forward to seeing what happens next.

  3. eeeek!!!! scary doll's head on a stick!!!! I wouldn't be able to sleep with that in the same room :)

    Can't wait to see how these end up....

  4. I received the lovely lady on a tin lol- no idea what to do with her yet!!

  5. Looks great! x Scary doll head!
