OK I am now hooked on decopatch and want to do more.
I put another couple of layers on the paper mache bag. I have chosen the ribbons for the handle and the overall design is now firmly fixed in my head. I will put another layer of paper on the bag before work tomorrow. Then I can start the handles tomorrow evening.
This is the first one - a decorated bar of soap.
I can remember being given these as a child by two Aunts. Not very safe things to give a child as the decorations were held on by pins. I have stayed true to my childhood memories and done the same.
Decorated soaps must have been quite in vogue in the early sixties and late fifties because I also had a moulded soap in the shape of a spaniel. I had it for many years until it got chipped durring a move.
