~Swap for Sculptors~


Ok, so most of you have guessed by now that I am a wee bit addicted to anything Halloween. I would like to combine that addiction with my love of sculpting for the 1st Annual TOMBSTONE TRADE!

Here is the gist of it...

Sculpt 1 original tombstones-headstones out of any sculpting medium you prefer (papier mache, paperclay, polymer, celluclay, Das Clay, etc...)

Make each one the approximate size of an art card (2.5x3.5)and any width you like.

They must stand on their own and may or may not have a base.

They may be designed & embellished in any way you like.

Each artist will send and receive 1 tombstone to/from 1 other artist.

My goal is to make this an annual swap so that in a few years we will each have a wonderful collection of one of a kind tombstones from the artists we know and love!

Please take pictures of your spooky creations for all to see (I may start a Flickr group to share these photos if we have enough interest/participants).

I will limit the participants to approximately 10 artists who have sculptures in some online marketplace (Etsy,Ebay,Pfatt,Glitter&Grunge,Personal Website,etc.) that I can view and confirm.

Your pieces should be sent out in the 2nd week of September.

I know we can make this amazing, fun and definitely memorable!!!

Oh, and did I mention that each artist who joins this trade will receive a free Halloween gift(s)from me?!!!
