These papers were created to be used making paper dolls and I can see where they would be great for that. i bought them to increase my collage paper pallet with neutral colors. I love the range from a rich chocolate brown, to several shades of tan, and a pinkish tan at the lightest. This set of colors are great backgrounds for other collaged images or rubber stamps.
Note that these papers are not uniform solid colors. They all have subtle handwriting on them. In some places on a single sheet the text is almost ghost-like transparent, in others it is distinct. While the text is tonal to the paper this may be a stopper for some projects. I personally like the texture of the writing.
This is such a great investment for the reasonable price. It comes in different shades of skin tones from very light to dark and all the shades in between. The coloring could be passed off as skin color and the light pattern impressions on the paper make the texture stand out creating a more dramatic look to the doll when added along with the clothing and hair coloring. You get a lot of paper and the dolls don't take up much of one sheet so you'll have plenty of paper to work with for a while. I plan on making dolls in all the different skin tones. I would purchase this item again when I needed it. I would also recommend this product and store to my friends and also the processing and shipping times were faster than I thought they'd be at least faster than a couple of other online stores I frequent.
