I have been trying to get ready for a show I have coming up at the end of November. Its an inside show, no booth, no grids. I get one 6′ table and that’s it. And I need to make the best of it. How do I make my table stand out among many? What can I sell? I obviously can’t sell paintings since I have no way to hang them. I know I can sell my small collages, thank goodness, but what else? I have been making coasters and I think they will work out fine. But I want to make sure that they can hold up to regular use. Nothing I hate more than buying something that looks good but falls apart after using it a few times. I don’t want to be known for that, for sure.
I made 10 coasters and I think they look great but have been experimenting with varnish and hopefully I have found the one that will work. I checked on them this morning after varnishing them last night and I like how they feel. They seem sturdy with a solid protective coating. But I am going to actually use one of them over the next week, just to make sure. OY, this is stressing me out.
