& de Olifanten kunstmarkt


Soms heb je van die momenten. 

Op facebook zag ik een evenement voorbij komen, een heuse kunstmarkt voor een goed doel. Zonder te denken stuurde ik een berichtje naar Vrienden voor de Olifant: 'Als jullie nog een plekje hebben voor iemand die live kunstkaarten kan tekenen wil ik wel meedoen!' Zo geschreven zo gezwegen maar na een aantal dagen kreeg ik ineens een berichtje terug! Er was nog een plekje over en ze wilden me er graag bij hebben! Wauw dacht ik, mijn eerste kunstmarkt! 

En toen, Oh NEEEEE ik heb helemaal geen Olifantenkunst! 

Aan de slag

Nu heb ik genoeg kaarten, tekeningen en schilderijen in het thema dier & natuur maar olifanten ontbraken daar nog een beetje aan. Flink aan de slag dus! Ik mag de ruimte delen met 12 andere kunstenaars en dan kan ik niet met lege olifantenhanden staan natuurlijk! Gelukkig was mijn inspiratie net zo aanwezig als mijn grote mond en slurfte ik er in no-time een paar leuke kaarten uit. Pfieuw! 

Het goede doel

Vrienden van de Olifant zet zich in voor behoud van Afrikaanse- en Aziatische olifanten door verschillende projecten in land van herkomst te sponsoren. Een prima doel dus! Ik zal, zoals jullie inmiddels gewend zijn, 1/3 van mijn opbrengt tijdens de kunstmarkt direct doneren aan deze organisatie.

Naast de kunstverkoop zijn er zaterdag nog allerlei andere activiteiten zoals muziek, schminken en een loterij. 

Voorbereiding

Nu nog even al mijn verkoopbare waar tevoorschijn halen uit de opslag, beetje sorteren, fotograferen, van sommige dingen extra exemplaren laten drukken enzovoorts! Spannend hoor!

Big Decopatch Dog Cat
Most people know I'm a big cat lover. A friend gave me a paper-mâché cat a gift the other day! So nice to have that (next to the cat grass) on the windowsill! But of course I gave him (or her) nice colors first, you get that. Because I quite often Decopatch (pasting pieces of paper on all kinds of surfaces) I still had a lot of scraps of small pieces left of different paper designs. Perfect to cover my own motley cat! At least I am happy with it, he/she is sitting here at home in front of the window, looking out and it keeps an eye on all the neighborhood cats. Collect about 20 kinds of pieces of paper, from each color a little. But if you only have 2 or 3 colors (for example) then you can of course also! By first dyeing the cat white, the colors of the paper come to the fore much fresher. It is not necessary, but it is advisable to! The eyelets are cut out of a nice Decopatch sheet, which only has eyelets. Choosing is difficult, all the eyes are fun! The method is very simple: Tear small pieces of a lot of different colors of paper. In stages, glue the cat (or any other shape) with Decopatch glue. The glue is also lacquer, so when you grease a piece with a soft brush, you stick the piece of paper on it, and then you go over it with the same brush and glue.. The next piece is glued to it overlapping, and then you go over again with the same brush with glue. So you continue, until the whole shape is covered. Finally, apply another layer, using the same brush with glue/lacquer. It's a bit of a job, because you also want to divide the colors a bit. That gives quite a nice effect, though? I don't have a lot of step-by-step pictures, I was so focused that I forgot. Decopatching is very relaxing, you forget the time when you are creative.. :) The large papier-mâché cat is 25cm high and you could of course also give it a collar with fringes and a bell, or give some bows, rhinestones, or one smooth color. I like busy, cheerful colors myself, it can't be fur enough. And you? How would you pimp this cat?? I'm curious! More info Check out the hundreds of designs you can choose from!
