Paper Mache Mannequin Torsos

I had found at a thrift shop a small styrofoam mannequin. I wanted to have more of the mannequin so what I did, I took a bowl with Mod Podge glue I get from Dollar Tree, added some water, cutup some papers, covered the mannequin with clear wrap and dipped the paper into the glue and water and just start adding it in to the mannequin.

I do three layers of the paper and glue, and allow it to dry for 24 hours. You can use any kind of paper, and any color. I used copy paper for the ones in display. This project is very time consuming but all worth it.

You get to decor it to your liking. I cut up some petals to do some paper flowers to add on to some of them, some I dressed up in handmade attire. The best part of this is just adding your style to them. You can do vintage, wedding dress, chic and chaby, is all according to you.

I also kept some as you can see with the pink In is natural look of the paper, again according to your style.
