Hard as Nails...

Among other things, I am a doll maker.  I like to use what's on hand, things I find, the odd bits and pieces.  The hair for this doll is made from concrete NAILS.  The body is made up of dryer lint mixed with glue to form a clay-like substance; apron made up from discarded denim pants.  (Waste not - want not - that's my motto!)

Best idea for the prompt, ever! (Well, at least I can't imagine anyone ever coming up with a better one.)

This is terrific. My sister makes crazy wondrous things by upcycling, too. The only thing we save for her from her very lengthy list of things she'd like from us is lint. Her lint jewelry is gorgeous.

I love the irony (pun intended) of using dryer lint to create a laundress!

Katherine said...

You are insanely creative. But now I know why I woke up this morning with a splitting headache (true story).

She's fabulous Pat! I love the hair. What a novel idea. And drier lint. Something else I've have to start hoarding (I mean saving...) LOL
