A big news article where they are standing on the big hand made set of 'Westminster Tube Station'! hope you enoy?
Hi all, I have no idea if this is the right forum to ask a few questions, but hopefully you'd be kind and redirect me if I got it wrong (just to let you know: English is not my first language, so I apologise in advance for any mistakes). I'll try to keep my story short: out of boredom, I started to play with clay and Powertex and plaster about a year ago and made a few objects initially just for my home. Some of my friends saw my 'creations' and asked me to make some for them (which I did!) and told me I should try and sell them (I've made quite a few and at the moment I have so many around the house and no idea what to do with them). Most of them are in clay, sand and Powertex (stone art) that I then paint with acrylics to make it look like bronze. - I have at least 12 other in this style; I also have a few in air-drying clay and plaster of Paris: What I need from you all is an honest opinion about my stuff. Do you think it would sell and should I give it a try? Or should I just continue to do them just for my enjoyment and give them away or put them in the bin (quite a few ended up in there already). The thing is, apart from 2 sessions of Powertex and many hours of youtube, I've never trained in anything arts&crafts and I have no idea if I'm using the right techniques and so I don't know if my amateurish creations are marketable. Many thanks for taking the time to read this and I'd love to hear some feedback from you. Ellie
Hi Everyone, I thought I would put my feet up, relax and introduce myself and my new business that I am trying to get off the ground. My name is Laura. I am a self supporting artist/designer. I have been involved in art all of my life. As a child, I loved to draw so much that if I had a pencil in my hand, I would draw on the walls of my bedroom, even my bathroom. Of course, my parents did not like that! As a business, I want to bring Artist, crafters and buyers together in an auction marketplace format where there are no listing fees. I also want the artists to keep more of the money they earn! All the best, Laura
