Cookie Jar. Pebeo Moon and Prisme

The French art material maker Pebeo has come out with two amazing range of paints for fine artists and crafts people. Two ranges of opalescent, reactive paints that create an array of infinite effects, designs and textured appearances. Magnificent abstract effects are the result. Available in a variety of mixable, brilliant colors, including pearlescent and metallic shades; they can be used to create an opaque, marbled effect on almost any surface, including glass, wood, Plexiglas, canvas, ceramics, metal, and more.

Fantasy Prisme. Opalescent and daring, the colours reveal stunning honeycomb and textured effects when applied generously on horizontal surfaces.

Fantasy Moon. Pearly, opaque colours that immediately render a hammered or marbled effect when applied in thin or thick coats.

I was commissioned to work on three Porcelain Cookie Jars. I have never worked on irregular porcelain surface, and I knew for sure that acrylic won’t work. My art supplies store (Color Note, Doha) had introduced me to this new range of Pebeo product, which are solvent based. With boldness I embarked on painting with these Pebeo paints. Impressed with the effect. Cant wait to work with these solvent based paints on canvas.

As an artist, I have totally embraced re-used and re-cycled materials as medium for my art; and I am surging ahead.
I have been experimenting with a lot of such materials for my creations, and paper certainly is a favorite currently.

Roll-A-Coaster is one such creations and these craft product is now ready for marketing. Branding, packaging, online sales channel, and payment gateway are all ready now.
Each pack contains a set of 6 coasters. They have a water proof coating and should last as long as you keep loving them.

I have taken this one step further. I am utilizing low-income expatriates in the Middle East to produce these coasters for me. I have been tutoring a few of them for the past two months both to create these coasters and learn to be self-reliant. I pay them a nominal sum in advance to create these coasters. A second payment will be made after I make a sale. Certainly I am using the principle of Fair Trade.

Your support will make REAL difference in their lives.

One can buy these coasters from:

May the forest be with you.

Newspaper Repurposed

These pieces of art was created for a workshop for Qatar Green Building Council, in conjunction with ‘No Paper Day’. These eco-friendly creations made out of recycled newspaper and magazine can make quite stunning art. These pieces not only are conversation art pieces, but they are also functional pieces. Today’s newspaper are colourful and can add depth and dimension with their varied hues, but the monochromatic simplicity of newspaper makes for wonderful art works as well.

Peg Art

I have been interested in Cloth Pegs from my childhood days. We used to peg our nose and make funny faces (Ouch, it still hurts). Mother taught me that Cloths Pegs could be used for different functions other than for drying cloths in the sun. Now I find them as a fantastic material to paint on and create works of art. Because the pegs are wooden they can be finished in a number of ways; you can paint, varnish or stain them. The great thing about using pegs as a crafting material is that they are more or less uniform. You will find odd pegs that are a little shorter than the others. However this is infrequent, and can add to the charm of the finished item, adding character.

At Art Explorers, we had a good week producing art on wooden Cloth Pegs. Children had a lot of fun. Here are some photos.

Color Shaper Workshop

October 12, 2012.
We gathered for a workshop on acrylic painting. Artists were introduced to the Color Shaper and Acrylic Matt Gel.

The Color Shapers are used for creating all kinds of unusual painterly effects and textural interest in your paintings.The Colour Shaper’s silicone tip gives you a combination of control, precision and fluidity that are uniquely inspiring; they take you beyond improvised tools and allow you to create exciting textures, marks and effects….a perfect complement to your brushes and palette knives.

Colour Shapers are extremely useful when working in the fine detail of your work, whether painting, model making or sculpting you can pick up the smallest amount of medium and control it with ease. Colour Shaper perfect for applying masking fluid for water color artists.

The Colour Shaper’s silicone tip does not absorb paint like a brush so it can be cleaned simply with a wipe – dried paint and glue can be peeled right off.


Session 4: Art must have a purpose – Creating painting gifts for friends we could not meet.

Session 4 of art gift creation was held on Saturday 22nd Sept. Usual venue: Artist Patric Rozario’s residence lobby. Though the usual large group of children were not present this week, a small number of 11 children was enough to continue the spirit of ‘creating with a purpose’. While some children created newer pieces of painting, others worked on improving and fine-tuning paintings that were created earlier on.

Here are the photos. Not present are Kamini and Shradha. Thank you all.

The next painting session will be on 6th October. Please confirm early if you will be participating.
