Altered cutlery challenge

Have finally found some time to alter my cutlery for the challenge over on the altered art forum at DC. After trawling the charity shops to no avail, finally found some goodies at a boot sale.

Started by colouring with alcohol inks and then bending the prongs. Decided to use the prongs as feet so it was self standing.

Used some friendly plastic to make the face and some feet, and added some wire for hair. Tested my patience making the wire skirt! It did not want to do what I wanted it to! Used some altered jigsaw pieces, and some dolls house cutlery to add details.
And added some wings of metal.

Well Dee, it's certainly altered! What a fantastic job - there's so much detail in it. I love the wings and the skirt - definitely worth all the effort.
