Inspired by the “Dada” notion of making art from materials that would not typically be combined or expected to go together, and driven by a similar sense of irony and humor, this book presents a unique approach to creating mixed-media dolls. A must-have for anyone interested in found object art and the human form, it is a thoughtful and provocative exploration of the power, symbolism, and cultural significance of dolls and representational figures. The authors share detailed techniques for using surface embellishments, using molds and molding products, and building and transforming disparate objects into whimsical, inspiring dolls. Beginning with a variety of substrates, readers are guided step by step through five types of doll construction. Numerous variations on each of the core projects promote further experimentation. Includes an inspiring gallery of mixed-media dolls from leading artists.
