Rusty Tin Doll

- by Monica Magness

This week's theme: Dolls

Dolls - they aren't just children's playthings. We use them in religious rituals, for decoration, as totems, to tell stories and to personify aspects of our psyche and the natural world. They can be realistic or abstractly representational but whatever form they take, we continue to create them and enjoy them.

Art: Rusty Tin Doll by Artist Monica Magness
This doll was completed due to a challenge brought upon by yahoo group CrazyArtDolls. I was given a package of oddities and in return I tried my hand at creating an altered tin doll. Techniques include the rusting of objects, stitching, collage of paper and cut felt, and painting. This was my first experience at making dolls from tin and an exciting journey into the world of assemblage art.
