Turn Your Art into Clothing or into Other Textile Items
Being an artist is not always easy. It starts with the difficulty of getting your work seen by others. Sometimes, you have to think differently, in order to catch the attention of people. One of the solutions is to turn your art into something that people can wear, or by integrating it into design items for the house. Here are a few ideas that will help you get creative.
If your art is very fluid, one of the best items that you can think of printing it onto, are certainly scarves. People who love scarves tend to look for the most unusual ones that they can find. And so, anything that you will create, which will differentiate itself from the others, will certainly be attractive to buyers. There are two ways that you can go about creating a scarf. The first is to imagine a drawing that will cover the exact size of it, or to simply create something that can be printed in full or in part. This is why we mentioned the fluid quality previously, as it is often best for a scarf to not be too constructed, but more flowing. Make print tests on a white textile, and once you found the visuals you want, create a few copies, add personalized labels by Wunderlabel to them, and go out to a few boutiques around you, to see if anyone would be interested in trying to sell them in their business.
If your art is more concrete, then maybe boxers are what you should look into. Being an artist, you will certainly find ideas on how to use both sides of them, in an original way. Look for a boxer pattern online, and start creating your visual on it. It can be funny, or it can be more romantic; it all depends on the kind of art that you actually create. Do not try something new, just to fit the clothes, or else, you won’t be an artist anymore, but just another business person. You will need someone to sew the parts together, once you have printed them. Boxers might not be as easy to fit into a boutique in your neighbourhood. So, instead, try opening an online boutique, where you will place photos of the various models that you have created.
Another great item that you can turn into an easel for your art, are cushions. That will work for just about any genre of image that you may be creating. It can be totally wild, and looking like modern art, but it can also be completely realistic or fun. Cushions are part of people’s environment, which help show what kind of life they are looking to live. Some are serious, while others are much lighter. Therefore, you should be able to find buyers, no matter what your drawing or painting style is. The best way to sell these is probably online, as well.
Now that you have a new solution to show your art, don’t waste time and try it. It just might be what makes you famous, one day.
