Now, it seems that lotus blossoms just aren't all that popular for flower arranging (color me surprised) but I think I found some flowers that will let me fake it. Will take some modifying, though.
I picked up some fabric paint. Silver, metalic blue, white and black. Now, to do some testing before attempting to make the finished product.
Oh, Google Image search is a stupendous thing. All sorts of snowflake patterns for me to play with.
While wandering the various stores today if finally dawned on me that I wanted to paint hard plastic... and what are the modeling kits made of but... hard plastic! So, I bought two different 'silver' colored model spray paints for the bangles.
I also picked up some 'bridal' type appliqués for the hips of Lilith's overskirt, as well as more white and grey thread (I think I will do the 'button holes' with grey thread.) and a gorgous little circle of gems for the navel detail.
Things are coming together! I still need to pick up some chain (or something.... maybe silver cord?) and tassels, but I think I still have some time.
