Many of our customers who purchase our used mannequins are buying them for art projects, especially mosaic. Actually the whole reason I am in the mannequin industry is because I was looking for a mannequin to mosaic and put in my garden and I ended up buying 50 mannequins on Craigslist. (That is a whole different story)
We created a board on Pinterest devoted to mosaic art on mannequins and here are some of our favorites.
Let’s start with mannequin heads.
This colorful head offers multiple layers of beads to create a dynamic mosaic head.
This mosaic head features cut glass pieces in brilliant colors.
This golden child uses chains, beads, and other golden materials.
Even a mannequin butt gets the mosaic art treatment.
