New York, New York (PRWEB) October 02, 2013
Altered Upcycling recently launched a new and innovative mixed media craft product at the world Maker Faire in New York. The product is a kit of craft stencils that allow artists, crafters and mixed media and altered art enthusiasts to make beautiful collage and mixed media paper dolls.
Paper dolls and mixed media art dolls have seen quite a revival in the craft industry and the Mixed Media Collage Doll Stencils by Altered Upcycling will make it very easy for young and old, crafters, artists and hobbyists to create beautiful works of art.
The kit comes with three stencils made from durable plastic. Each kit comes with 5 dress patterns, 10 hairstyles, 3 body postures and lots of hats and head gear as well as wings.
The stencil kit was launched at the World Maker Faire in New York on the 21st and 22nd of September 2013 and was well received. Crafters and artists from various generations loved the product and found it easy to use. From 6 year old girls to grandparents, the stencils were found by all to be a very interesting and creative product.
The kit was showcased along with a wide variety of projects that were all completed using the stencil kit. Since the product is supposed to encourage crafters to go green, these stencils can be used with paper and fabric scraps. In fact all the projects show cased at the faire had been made using repurposed and recycled materials. In keeping with the green theme of the product, each kit came with minimal packaging but access to an entire website that is full of tutorials and even videos with the promise of many more to come.
This kit is the first in a line planned by Altered Upcycling. These doll kits will make mixed media doll arts very easy for all artists and crafters and will also encourage a new generation of makers to craft green.
