I took child's hairdresser toy and panted it in faux copper then planted it.

Ooh! I've got one of those! I've since cut off the top of her head. Just haven't had a chance to paint her yet.
Mine has eyes that open and close.
Yours looks great!

Kathy, we must have similar quirky ideas! I just planted a baby doll with Irish moss last Thursday. I painted the doll with hammered bronze spray paint. I'll post a picture when it stops raining :)

I've been looking for something like that for years,never thought to look at toys though.I want one to plant some grass in ,the grass looks like blonde hair to me.Guess I better make a trip to the goodwill toy section.

I remember awhile back we were all looking for dolls
to make statues to 'bronze'. I started one but never
finished it.

These types of planters are very in vogue right now. You did a great job with the painting!

At this very moment I have a cobalt blue head waiting for the top to be cut. I have a huge red spike that I got on clearance waiting to go in. I got the head from my local medical supply place. It is a model for a CPAP machine.
