Do you look for something new and creative for your kids this summer? Do you want something for your parties/events that everyone will enjoy as a gift or souvenir? Actually it’s perfect for all season and ocassion. Here’s where Desert Patch can come in and sort all this for you.
Desert Patch is an arts and supplies shop. As the meaning of Patch is a piece of cloth or other material used to mend or strengthen a torn or weak point, however this is used as an art, to make a creative piece that you can use as a display or to gift someone special to you. This comes in different sizes of mostly animals and different colors of patch materials.
Desert Patch can be seen during weekends in Dubai Garden Centre and in Arte Market (Times Square) where they do their workshop but for now it stopped and will resume on August 20. This workshop is known as DECOPATCH. They are also participating on some school fairs to display their products and even in a pop up market like Ripe Market. But of course, still you can do this at home while waiting for this date to come by sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call up on 050 250 4424. The kit will be delivered to your home. This kit contains tissue paper, brush, glue and the product itself. There are other shops or companies that do decopatch but only them who provides it with a kit. Pretty cool right?
Now let me show you what I got. Here’s Mr. Camel on a handy size. It was delivered by one of my favourite courier companies which is SkyNet. I love the paper bag’s eye catching color Light Sky Blue with its logo on the center. Simple and pretty!
So I’ve opened it up and tried how it is. It’s been a long time too since I’ve done some crafting. I placed a used newspaper on the table since we are talking about working with glue here. I put all the materials on top of it and cut the patching materials in small pieces.
I started brushing some glue on one side of the camel and patching the paper alternatively. Either you can do this or brush the glue on the paper and stick on it. Once I finished, it looks really beautiful and it can stand by itself.
I washed the brush immediately with warm water so the glue wont stay on it. Same way I did with my hands. It went away easily so don’t get afraid to be messy.
It’s a terrific product indeed for some parties or events as part of the program for kids and even adults. You can always contact from the info I left above else you can follow them in Facebook and Instagram for some updates especially for the location where you can catch them.
Don’t you think it’s awesome?
Price depends on the size. Petite is 40dhs, small 50dhs, medium 70dhs, large 90 dhs and extra large 130 dhs. Plus an extra extra large giraffe that is 900 dhs. It is huge!
