Ouija inspired Corset
My Daughter just graduated from High School and has pretty much everything (including a house). Finding her something for a gift was difficult, I knew she really wanted a "real" corset. I found two corsets for her, both corsets were plain black with a floral monotone pattern in the background. I painted this for her on one of the corsets. Sorry the images are so blurry, I used my crappy camera on my phone.

  • Step 1

    I didn't really take photos of the progress because it’s pretty self-explanatory. It was very simple as the corset has lots of seams and lines to use for a guide on where your art should go. I just found the inspiration in various pictures I had seen or drawn, lined up where everything should go and painted away.

  • Step 2

    I highly recommend if you are going to embellish a corset that you use two binder clips to stabilize the front busk opening; one on the top of the busk and one on the bottom. Put a slight bit of tension or separation at the top and bottom so that the hook and posts are where they will be when the corset is on.

  • Step 3

    I used Americana Multi Surface Satin paints and Jacquard Lumiere paints. Before I started actually painting the pictures on the corset, I did splatter some lime green in the background (it my daughters favorite color). I let the splatters dry completely before I started the actual pictures on the corset

  • Step 4

    I used the Americana Multi Surface to paint the eyes and posts of the busk, you can use the paint on metal. I chose to go over top of them with clear nail polish (3 coats) to attempt to ensure the paint did not chip off.

This is so cool! I'd love to see what it looks like when it's worn.

I just gave it to her last night, I will certainly post a pic for you when she wears it. Thanks, it is much better looking in person and would look better if I had not used my phone to take pics! Happy
