These 3 dresses were part of a set of 5 cast at the same time in Seattle. The originals were made of sculptor's wax. I had a good time making these in my kitchen with the crock pot to melt the wax and balloons to get the shapes. A long kerfuffle getting a steel bar, getting it cut into short segments, getting them drilled. However, success at last, and fun putting it all together. Sold.
