Repurposing: Mixing Station
Posted By :Date :David Fedeli | 12-22-2015
Hopefully, you've already read Part 1: Palette Table, and understand what we are looking to accomplish with this project. Repurposing things to get exactly what we want at a minimal cost. After completing the Palette Table, I moved on to a companion piece; the Mixing Station. I wanted a place to mix larger quantities of paint and hold tools, solvent cans, paper towels etc., in order to keep the Palette Table clear. So I created a design for a piece of furniture to do all of those things. As outlined in Part…

Invariably, a bored visitor or student finally asks, "why do you spend so much time on the underpainting when you are just going to cover it up with the oil paint?" Well, that's a really good question! One which I will attempt to answer here in words and pictures. I think this is a…

DIY: Trade Show Booth and Walls
Posted By :Date :David Fedeli | 10-06-2015
When I first decided to do Art Festivals and Trade Shows, there was a lot to learn. You can spend a fortune before you even know if it is "your thing" or not. Finding ways to meet the requirements and keep costs under control is paramount. First, you need a Canopy. And it must be WHITE! While Trimline is pretty much the cream of the crop in canopies, you will spend well over $1000 to buy one new. Even a used one will cost a pretty penny. I researched online…
