Talented guy!

I said I'd let you know when the very talented guy I know who sells repro chalkware was selling on ebay again, well he's selling now! There's quite a few on there, some have already gone, sorry for being tardy, however he told me he's releasing a lot of new models so keep an eye out for what he's releasing in the future.

I have several of his chalkware pieces, they are really lovely, well made and the best repros I've ever seen. Here are some that he has on ebay at the moment, I know he packages really well and ships all over the world so if you're in the US and want to bid don't worry! They can all be found here http://shop.ebay.co.uk/wigantamla/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p4340




I really want the next one for my bathroom!





Really how talented is he?! Thanks to Ray I had the courage to repair some of my own chalkware realising it was easier than I thought, which I was happy about as I had broken the base of one of my favourite lamps, now it looks like new!

If you want to check out some of the chalkware I've bought from him, click here for a previous post!

I love a nice bit of chalkware! If I remember rightly we used to win it on the fairground on hook a fish and the like!It wasn't as glam as this though! Thanks for the heads up.

I love his stuff, but they always go beyond my budget on ebay :( I'll save one day to get one.

Oh I love it! The colors he uses are great! How do you repair it? I have a whole box full of things that have been broke over the years? Zootsuitmama

zootsuitmama - to repair you need to go to a craft shop and get a mix to make your own chalkware up. Then mix it to the right consistency for your repair, glue any items which need larger repair. Then you can get specialist paint for chalkware I think this is the hardest bit matching up colours, I have had to repaint whole areas so as to avoid matching!

Wow! They're fabulous! I am SO glad that he thought to make these - and such a great job of it too.
