Paper Dolls




November in Seattle means lots of rain, wind and fog… perfect conditions for hunkering down in the studio and playing with materials. I have been making paper dresses this week and dipping them into encaustic medium (bee’s wax & resin). Thought I would share my favorite dress here. I love the way the little hanger turned out too. The dress with hanger measures 10” tall by 6” wide.

hi alicia, this is absolutely beautiful! I love dipping paper in encaustic medium too. It just has such a lovely magical effect on paper.

I think these would sell well anywhere! Etsy can be hit or miss. Some people do great, some people tend to get lost in the mix. It also seems to me that people are looking for bargains. I really haven't put much time or effort into my shop, but I have had a few sales from there. And more importantly I have made some good connections there.

But you should try it out and see. It's not much of a financial investment- it's just the time to set up your shop. Good luck!

Beautiful technique! I live on Bainbridge Island and wonder if you teach classes around the Seattle area?
