Mixed-Media Dollhouses: Techniques and Ideas for Doll-Size Assemblages

Mixed-Media Dollhouses: Techniques and Ideas for Doll-Size Assemblages Cover

 

Staff Pick

This is the first altered-art book I've found that focuses solely on dollhouses. Before I discovered this book, I had a couple of shoe boxes and some decorative paper staring at me. I've since begun sketching plans and gathering items for a roof, circular side extensions, and hidden crawlspaces.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book takes the artistic approach of assemblage and collage, and combines it with the long-loved tradition of making doll houses--but these doll houses are anything but traditional! Begun as an artistic challenge between a group of talented friends, these mixed-media doll houses include beautiful castles, undersea fantasy-lands, gothic attics, inspiring tree houses and much more. Authors Tally Oliveau and Julie Molina share a host of interesting alteration techniques while showing readers how to construct beautiful, fantasy doll houses. Readers learn to how to construct or repurpose found boxes into rooms and houses, how to decorate interior surfaces, how to build miniature furnishings, how to make their own paper dolls, and how to embellish their houses using a variety of imaginative materials.
