uPcYcliNG tHE hOPeLeSsly TaCKy

So I have this small obsession with wandering the isles of dollar stores or big box craft stores looking for items to reclaim and upcycle. These items are inevitably soulless and aesthetically challenged. I like to resurrect the hopelessly tacky ballerina doll and turn her into dark and meaningful art. Gesso, a dremel, and a blow torch are my favorite weapons of resurrection.. Enjoy..
