Cage Art Doll
By Robin Dudley-Howes
Saturday June 8
all levels welcome

Learn how to make this fun and whimsical cage doll!   No experience necessary.  You will learn some fun techniques that I have gathered in my several years of mixed media using paper clay, simple armature construction, soldering, wire manipulation and techniques in primitive doll painting.   In addition I will show you how to make wings and a formula to add appendages to your doll like bunny ears, kitty ears, antlers etc.  This doll dosen’t require a lot of supplies but you will need to bring the following and I’ll supply the rest:

Material list:
~ soldering iron with ¼ inch bevel tip(no cone tips) & coiled holder with sponge
~fire proof surface (fire brick or 6x6 ceramic tile)
 ~Lead free solder
~One package of Creative Paper Clay (that’s what the brand is called and can be found at Michaels in the polymer clay section).  Bring a zip lock bag to store the clay in.
~ a large tongue depressor or something similar as a tool to smooth the clay
~unwanted newspaper or junk mail if you have it
~masking tape
~ a couple paint brushes to paint the body and facial features like a 1 inch sponge brush and small detail brush
~plastic container for water
~hammer, steel bench block, chain nose pliers, small round nose pliers

I will provide paint, wire, copper foil tape, flux and remover, patina solution, glue and words.  Feel free to bring your own paint and words just in case I don’t have your preference and if you don’t have soldering equipment your welcome to use mine for a studio fee of $5 but please notify me ahead of time.
