Subject: HMP Doll Swap
There's a new yahoo group dedicated to creating dolls to raise money
for tsunami relief
As I thought about doll designs, I just remembered how I had wanted
to return to doll sculpting
and handmade paper in dollmaking. Last year I both hosted and
participated in several swaps and round robins in dolls, but in other
and mixed media. My paperdolls were exercises in drawing or collage.
When I first began playing with pulp as I moved from papier maché to
papermaking-- I had made a number of 2.5 dimension/bas relief paper
dolls. I was reminded of this in 2003's ornament swap with Susan
Bush's glorious Muses
but I didn't get to thinking through/ experimenting with 3D HMP
dolls last year.
So how about a handmade-paper doll swap? More than 2D (but not
necessarily 3D) Due in mid April?
Looking forward to your participation,
