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). This is not a RULE BUT A GUIDELINE.
They must stand on their own and may or may not have a base.
They must be signed & dated with the year 2009 on them.
They may be designed & embellished in any way you like.
Each artist will send and receive 1 tombstone to/from 1 other artist.
The goal is to keep this annual swap going 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 when you are done and post them in our Flickr group to share.
**WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW before you email me**
I will limit the participants to approximately 16 artists.
PARTICIPANTS from last year will have FIRST chance to join in again.
Participants MUST be well versed in sculpting and be able to show their work if I am unfamiliar with your art. This is because we have a number of extremely talented sculptors and I want to avoid someone being disappointed.
SEND ME YOUR BLOG LINKS if you email me directly at email@example.com
Your pieces should be sent out in the 4th week of September, 2009.
I know we can make this another amazing year. It was so fun and definitely memorable last year and I can't wait to see who I get!!!
Leave a comment if interested and once I have touched base with all previous participants I will begin to add new participants for this year!
Finally, I will keep a list of all participants in the left column of the blog for you to see under the badge. As well as any NEW news pertaining to this trade.
As with all of the trades/swaps that I host, you will be able to find this information again for reference by going to the very bottom of my blog.
