MarcoSpiteri: For the benefit of those looking through this clip and wanting to
construct a Christmas Crib. Basically the crib is made out of jablo pieces
fixed together with pva glue and toothpicks and formed by hand to any shape
required. The building is done by cutting small blocks of jablo in the form
of small bricks and building as we did with lego blocks. After having
finished the shaping of the Jablo for rock and the building preapre a
mixture of PVA glue, plaster powder (english plaster)

Daryl Vaz: hey hi marco, I really loved your design of this christmas crib and would
like to congragulate you for that. I have started making crib for this year
I need your hlp on how to put extra statues apart from the nativity
statues. Could you please help me, it would be great from your side like
the shopkeeper or lady carrying water etc.
melissa calabro: Beautiful Presepio! Could you tell me where I can get the figurines from
please? That would really help!
MarcoSpiteri: ....and saw dust and mix with water until you have a creamy liquid. You
will need paper napkins. Place a paper napkin on any area you want to
plaster and dab with a small paint brush. Cover all the crib in this way.
When dried it will give you a good hard finish. Paint to your liking
however do not use dark colours.
LUPO IRPINO: Marco cosa hai messo per impermeabilizzare la cascata??grazie sei
iw3ioj: e la fiaba continua... bel lavoro, complimenti.
Carmel Teuma Vella: My dear old Nannu in the late fourties gave my brother and me his Presepio
complete with mnay very fine and beautiful figures. The actual manger was
made up of roght red colored chunks of stones. I have always wondered where
they may have come from. The many stones are assembled by whoever has them
in many different ways, but with a manger as the primary part. My younger
brother now has all that , still in Malta.
Andreas Barbara: Marco in naha li amilt lix xmara zghira xinu dak il past rasin u hardner
jew xi tip differenti ? Grazzi
jambo jambogb: Amazing! You are a great artist!!!
MarcoSpiteri: Lupo..si puo usare tempere che si usano per dipingere i muri del
appartamento pero le tempere devono essere "water based" con base aqua
perche se non sono cosi fanno danneggio al polistirolo. Grazie per i
MarcoSpiteri: Thank you Sasha..polystyrene is easy to use and it gives nice
results....good luck and keep it up
Daryl Vaz: Hi Marco could you please help me in giving some tip or idea of how can I
prepare or make such statues like the baker or the women filling water
because in India you dont get such kind of statues apart from the nativity
set. It would be very helpful from you. Thanks.
MarcoSpiteri: Darrel mur ghand hanut taz-zeba u ixtri kulur tat-trab isfar, kannella u
frizz787: what material is the crib made of
MarcoSpiteri: thank you
MarcoSpiteri: Grazzi Habib
MarcoSpiteri: Darrel, Muturi hawn be speed differenti...jien tieghi nixtrihom mil-hamrun
magenb il knisja..u nghidlu li nkun irrida bi speed baxx..
Darrel Pace: Proset hafna talx-xoghol li inti ghamilt. Ghadni kif lestejt ix-xoghol
tal-jablo u l-kisi bil-paper napkins u l-kolla. Wara li tlesti dan
ix-xoghol, x'tip ta' zebgha trid tuza biex taghti z-zebgha lill-presepju?
MarcoSpiteri: Yes go ahead no problem..::))
erfut: Do you have any plans for a mechanical crib? Thank you for your instructive
MarcoSpiteri: Facli mur ghand xi hanut taz-zebgha u staqsieh ghal kuluri li jaghmlu fuq
il-presepji generalment ikunu kannella, isfar u ahdar. Jien l-ewwel nuza
il-kannella imma kif naghmel bicca nimshu mal-ewwel biex ma jkunx skur wisq
u bhekk thalli ftit mic-car tal-gibs jidher
MarcoSpiteri: jekk tkun trid ibghatli ritratt tal-presepju tieghek ghax issa ghamiltni
kurjus ::)) ...rigward il-kulur zommu car kemm jista jkun. Jien mal gibs
inhallat sallatura naqra skura tal-oak biex il-gibs ma jibqax bajdani..wara
naghmel kannella u nimshu mal-ewwel bhekk jigi qiesu stained u jibqa jidher
il gries tas-sallatura skura.
MarcoSpiteri: thanks for the compliments however its not that difficult you know...I
tried to explain as best as I could so that even you can try making a crib
MarcoSpiteri: not at the moment
Cake Creations One Stop Party Shop: biex zbahtu?
MarcoSpiteri: Lupo, Grazie per il complimento, allora ho usato film di plastica quella
che usiamo in cucina un po di colla bianca sotto poi sopra ho messo quella
cera che viene intorno al formaggio di galbani :) ...ho usato questa
tecnica perche la corsa dell'aqua e corta.
LUPO IRPINO: certo diluityi con acqua
MarcoSpiteri: Carmel those stones come from blacksmiths ovens / kilns..some people still
use them in Malta to make cribs.
hey sasha: this is amazing we build a crib every year and its always different but
this year we are trying to use polystyrene :)
Darrel Pace: Grazzi hafna Marco
MarcoSpiteri: 100cm X 80cm
MarcoSpiteri: Hi Daryl thanks for your comments. You certainly need to get some sheep and
one or two sheperds. Yes a woman washing clothes or a statue holding a
bucket next to the water fountain..a shop keeper and a Baker for the
Bakery...three wise men are important...the rest I leave to your
imagination...every character is nice to have...in Malta for example we
have a figure looking downwards from the top of the nativity cave which I
have not included in this crib...hope this is useful information to you
LUPO IRPINO: Marco mi dici le dimensioni del presepe grazie un saluto e buon natale 2012
Julian Scicluna: Very good Marco. Your effort to show how gablo can be used in crib making
is very much appreciated.
Billy Wardlaw: Great work!
