To start, I dry brushed white craft paint onto the high points of the rusted dolls. I always end up using way too much paint on the brush, so I dab my index finger in the paint, rub most of it off, then lightly brush the high points of the dolls. It didn't take very long for the paint to dry.

|Love that dark grunge!|
With the dolls firmly in place, I decided to add a bit of clear gesso to the scrapbook paper. I used a small, soft paintbrush and got under the dolls and to the edges of the glitter. I'm really pleased with how they all turned out and I'm thinking the next batch will have a red wash of paint.
Thanks for following the progress of these creepy cuties!
