Online Pop Up Shop



How clever is this, a group of Crafters, based in Ireland that all chat online, have come up with a great idea. To make a pop up shop online for a limited time.
It's aimed at parents buying presents for their childrens' teachers. Good idea isn't it?
A few technical aspects that will be eckked out and a few
 things we will probably learn along the way.
The popup is being run through Facebook Events, so we can usee all our contacts.
We can just alter the date on cpmpletion, so we don't have to re-invite guests for a future event..back to school,
 Hallowe'en ..etc.
For simplicity, all prices include P&P for Ireland.
My two A3 noticeboards are here for 20euro incl/free P&P (Ireland)

Fingers crossed, it will be the start of more entrepreneunial genius 😉

FINALLY!!!!! new notice boards.

Phew! finally got some work finished.

All these are avail online from my facebook page or here for under 20euro.

P&P isn’t too bad as they are light..approx 11euro for up to 2 to be posted to the USA unregistered.

Hope you Like.

Loaned my nice camera to a friend so Pictures area bit crooked but the colours are accurately portrayed as much as possible.

This piece is very softly coloured and delicate. My Favourite i think.

BATIK PINBOARD

I’ll be adding to this soon, but here’s the HOW TO on the first one

TO MAKE THIS 

YOU WILL NEED..

wax pot (insert)
 
(or double boil like chocolate but these pots will only be usefull for wax and EXTREME CAUTION is required)

hog hair (wax) and acrylic brushes (dye)

dyes (see how to make…https://ewesir.wordpress.com/tag/dye/ )

lots of newspaper / newsprint

iron

and all the materials for making a notice board in previous post https://ewesir.wordpress.com/2012/02/27/notice-board-easy-peesie/

ONE

TRACE IMAGE..you can see the drawing underneath in this image

CONSIDER WHERE YOUR LINES WOULD BE SO THEY CROSS OVER WHERE YOU WANT THEM

TWO

WAX EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO KEEP THE COLOUR OF THE FABRIC

CRACK THE WAX IF YOU WANT TO LEAVE DYE INTO THE CRACKS

THREE


I PAINTED IN THE DYE AS THERE IS SO LITTLE AREA TO BE DYED.

I BLED DIFFERENT DYES INTO THE PIECE.

I HAD USED NON-PERMANENT MARKER FOR THE OUTLINE WHICH BLED ALSO.

FOR THE CRACKS..I PAINTED THE DYE OVER THEM AND SCRUBBED INTO THEM WITH MY BRUSH

FOUR

sandwich the finished piece between newspaper

iron out until all the wax is gone..

keep changing the newspaper and use enough to protect your iron and board,

if the iron starts smoking..it’s because wax has transfered to the plate of the iron or it’s setting is releasing water.

FINALLY

staple all together as in earlier post.

PLACE RIBBON WHERE TELEPHONE WIRE WOULD BE.

Alternate Versions

excuse any bits and pieces sticking out..must add backing and secure tomorrow..
