Well here is the meat of this issue! Making your very own Biddy. Now you can be creating this doll to enter
in our wonderful biddy contest .... or give as a gift to a special friend .... perhaps you simply need another
piece to sell at a show. (contest is now defunct)
Whatever the reason ... I hope to bring you
a fresh perspective on creation and inspiration.
The key to learning ... is to remember there are as
many different ways to construct a doll ... as there are doll artists constructing
dolls! Each brings his or her unique *gift* to a class or tutorial.
The trick is to learn as MUCH as possible from everyone ... then keep the gems of instruction that work
best for you! So there is never one person that really comes up with everything!
All artists are a combination of learned techniques (whether from
articles, classes or trial and error). And with that in mind ... lets build
-Finding a Doll Body will give you a perspective on many different times of molds available, as well as
being a source for those on a budget
-Inspiration gives a wonderful background on red hat ladies ...
and those wonderful golden
girls that make us smile!
-Construction goes into intricate detail on everything
from assembling doll, shoes, and many
types of dress
Happy Creating! DANA
