Undertone can be monotone. Arts & Crafts tips to lift your home's spirit

Chances are you don’t live in an art gallery and, unless there’s a special occasion, you didn’t spend your night at the museum. Maybe you’re sharing rent or live on a college campus, maybe you work the night shift and sleep during the first part of the day, maybe you have the same furniture since you got married and you didn’t inherit expensive artworks. Even so, your home doesn’t have to be a monotone and boring space. And the good news is it’s not that hard to make subtle but beautiful improvements. Here are just a few tips and recommendations we can make.

Start small and make it your hobby

It might seem like child’s play, but have you heard about rock painting? It’s a fantastic gateway for beginner artists and so much more than just rock painting. This activity will train your hands to paint on small and uneven surfaces. You will also have to get familiar with fine detail and miniature paint brushes and learn about acrylic paint. You can also use gouache or tempera paint but we recommend using acrylic for these works.

Paint your vases, planters and jars

These recipients of beauty and goodies could and should be something beautiful in themselves. They should also be a statement of your artistic taste and journey. Nothing easier than making them exactly this. You can paint them and then paint them some more, adding different colors, making interesting patterns and producing some fine textures over time. Don’t let the patina be the artist in your home, bring some zing and style.

Over time, acrylic paints have become one of the most popular and loved painting mediums in the world. Why? Because they’re fast-drying, water-based and can be used on a huge variety of surfaces. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, our acrylic paints make a beautiful impression on most surfaces including paper, canvas, rocks, wood, glass, ceramic, metal, fabric and plastic. Since the paint is water-based, it glides smoothly, blends easily and dries quickly.

This acrylic paint is washable only while it's still wet, when you can easily remove it using warm water and soap. Once it dries, the paint inside this acrylic set becomes permanent. This is the ideal paint kit for all skill levels art enthusiasts, both beginners and professionals, kids and adults as well.
