Key Holder

Dear readers, just wanted to also update you on another small thing I learned in the world of creations. I took a hobby class for making keyholders. I had promised my mother I will gift her this new artwork for her and dad's wedding anniversary. I made aqua theme based key holder, it had provision for holding 7 keys. And 3 fishes ..colorful.
It turned out nice and now it's being used at parent's place. My husband is excited too about this little work and I will make one for ourselves too. And I have got one order for making it by my aunt. That's a good start. Etsy buyers will see these key holders listed in due course of time. Till then, hang in. Happy New Year.

Experimentation With Prints

I had been thinking of doing this for long time and finally managed to do it, thanks to dad for his knowledge, help and right references. Now that our etsy shop is picking up and paintings being liked and loved, we got some select paintings printed and thus reproduced. The reproduction was done on canvas and a good scan quality is very essential. The printing press we know of (that my dad has already worked with) helped us greatly and this small project was thus successful. The idea behind this experimentation is to be able to re-create the artwork and be able to make it available to the buyers at lower costs (Original and print will always defer in pricing). We will see to it that our buyers also see prints in future and be able to purchase those at more attractive prices. Well they say - if you yourself use what you sell, then you are truly committed to what you are selling. Well, I got these prints framed and now I will be able to decor my own home with these greatly framed dad's prints. I have also got one of my dad's large size original paintings framed for my own home (thereby deleting it from etsy shop ...). Three cheers.
