Last Bon Bon Babe Chocolate! Start of Halloween Dolls!


I completed the last Bon Bon Babe...she is a Chocolate Bon Bon!  The striped fabric reminds me of a fancy candy wrapper, the ones that are twisted on both sides ...so I tried to make her have a Puffy "Wrapper" type dress.  I stamped a  tiny harlequin design with distress ink on pale yellow fabric, and it appeared gold and matched the striped dress....Like A "miracle" !  Stamps are such a cool tool...allowing you to design your own fabric! 


Her Chocolate hat was formed with two tools.... I found a kids PLAY DOUGH set with some cool "sweets" molds.  One of them was this candy with a "Dallop" shape on top.  I put a sheet of chocolate colored clay in the mold, and then used one of my "Cupper" balls to squeeze the clay and form this perfect little hat!  I used Texture squeeze paint for the chocolate drizzle...then glossed it with Triple thick...adding tiny handmade polymer candies and a silk ribbon bow. 

She has "Candy jointed arms too! I created two strawberry topped chocolate beads in between two filigree bead caps...I added some silk ribbon to match her dress. 










And now its time to start some Halloween fairies!  I pulled out all of my halloween prints, I tea stained most of them for a "Vintage " feel....  I found a very cool piece of Vintage Black and Orange striped  Velvet ribbon...I can't wait to use it!
