The beautifull canvases i made for my baby girls nursery. Each character was hand drawn by myself whilst looking at an image taken from google. I then added colour using acrylic paint. I used flat colours to enhance the characteristics of the cartooon.

Mannequins In The Making (3)

After priming each mannequin, I spray painted each one the colour of their mood, which they represented. Blue – sad, red – anger and yellow – happy.

My original idea was to mark make on top of the colour, with acrylic paint and scratching into the mannequin itself. However, I liked the mannequins as a solid colour and thought by doing this I would ruin their boldness.

NB: The umbrella hanging in the tree was because it was raining and the mannequins are hanging from a pole that is also wedged into the tree! (This is only temporary, and not part of my installation!) Also I wouldn’t say this is safe, but a pretty good idea if you need to spray in the rain! I am not responsible if you wish to recreate this and end up injuring yourself, I had minions helping me, so be carefull! 🙂

After making the basic structures of each mannequin and paper machee-ing the whole body, I needed to prime them, so the colour of each mood would be bright and strong.

I used Halfords own spraypaint primer. Also got a couple of minions to help me out 🙂
