I will walk your through hair, makeup, costuming...the works! Make a collage doll with open or closed eyes.

During this 3-part workshop, you will learn to create a custom doll face and upper body (templates are provided!). Learn to prep and decorate an inexpensive canvas for your doll. Learn how to alter and securely attach dimensional elements to create a custom collage like no other. The doll and her collage are made to fit within a depth of less than 1 inch--perfect for mounting on the wall!

☂ Create a custom collage doll design using simple materials and methods

☂ Learn to make a face with open or closed eyes

☂ Face templates included--no drawing skills needed!

☂ Learn to costume and wig your original doll

☂ Learn which paints, glazes, glues, mediums and materials will work for dimensional collage

☂ Learn to pull collage elements together so they look like they belong

☂ Create an art piece unlike any other!

☂ Apply the skills you use in this workshop to your doll making, dimensional art, assemblage or collage!

The guide is over 90 pages long with over 160 full color photos and descriptions to walk you through every part of making your doll and her surrounding collage. You can print out select pages or the entire document--it is up to you!

All lessons will be released at once. Please let me know which email address you would like the files sent to and whether you need files sent separately (for email accounts with smaller attachment limits). If you need any support during your project, I will be just an email away!
