Metal dolls

From this 
Vi ricordate le famose matrioske?
To this... 
Le ho un pò modernizzate :-)
Metal week at CraftBarn....so, metal forever!! :-)
Adhesive metal foil and lots of patience...Here's the step by step.
Settimana dedicato al metallo su CraftBarn!
Qui il passo passo, fogli adesivi di metallo e un po' di pazienza...
Stop smiling, I know these are funny, in my mind were steam-punked, but I'm afraid these look like little austronauts...Russians, at least!
Nella mia testa dovevano essere steampunk, ma dopo molti molti tentativi, ho lasciato perdere, adesso assomigliano a degli austronati...russi, naturalmente!
This one is sooooo small!
Questa è veramente piccolissima!
All together:
Materials:
Metal sheet - copper 
Lindsay Mason clear stamps: Steamed up 
StazOn ink pad - Jet Black

I participate on "Simonsaysmondaychallengeblog", this week it's about 'Stamping on anything but plain paper and  Sandee and Amelie: Steampunk Challenges : Dolls 'n Robots.

And new letter for the Alpha Challenge: G, like Gentleman.
Nuova lettera per il mio dizionario alterato, la lettera è G, come Gentiluomo:

Cara Gio,
le tue matriosche metallare sono troppo carine!
Ma come ti vengono certe idee?
Sei sempre più avanti.
Un bacione,

Nuova versione spaziale delle Matrioske! La mia preferita è quella con gli spuntoni in testa.

Awe Gio your dolls are adorable, what a fantastic makeover sweetie, lol I would definitely not have the patience ha ha ha.
I love your alpha page too, beautifully done. I think true gentlemen are very far and few between, a rarity yes but some do still exist thankfully.
Huge hugs lovely lady x x x x

They are wonderful, Gio - I agree they look like Russian astronauts! They'd also fit perfectly in Sandee and Amelie's Steampunk Challenge this month which is Dolls and Robots!

Andrea Ockey Parr ha detto...

What an absolutely unique project! I would've never thought to cover nesting dolls with metal foil! You are so creative with this idea and I really love you made these your own by this technique. Very clever and I'm glad that you shared your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

Elly ha detto...

This is funny.I never really knew what to do with these little fellas as i was a child but if i see them now covered up in foil, they make sense. They have a touch of frosty innuits now. Brilliant (:o)

maj. ha detto...

oh WOW what beautiful artwork, Gio!!!

Neet ha detto...

These are absolutely fabulous!
Hugs, Neet xx

Neet ha detto...

Love those doll remakes. I have that same set but as my mother bought it me (and she has since passed) I fear I cannot alter them but if I ever find some more in a charity shop guess what? yes, I will be buying them.
Hugs, neet xx
