Turn Mini Art into Art Products
With the Twitter Art Exhibition Call open for 2017, I started to paint several 4×6 inch pieces of which I will choose one to send to the UK early in 2017. Every year I do a dozen or so before settling on one to send and this year is no different.
In a box of paper supplies, I found a set of cards with envelopes meant that I could turn into greeting cards. There is a slot in the card to set a photograph sized 6 x 4 inches but I decided that it could just as easily be a small painting. The card would make a lovely surprise for someone who not only got a card but also a miniature painting to keep. Since I kept all of my Twitter Art attempts, I may now have a great idea of how to use them.
If you are a member of fineartamerica.com then you can also turn these mini paintings into large prints. Pictured here my uploaded image is a print with a mat and a frame of your choice. The site offers different sizes depending on the pixel size of the original uploaded image. A 4 x 6 image can be as large as your camera allows, in my case that’s around 4,000 pixels 1,320 and that will allow for a print as large as 40 x 29.75 inches. There are also canvas prints and a whole host of other products available including: cards, metal print, poster prints, acrylic canvas, bags, t-shirts, shower curtains, duvet, phone cases, tote bags and towels to name a few.
If you have mini art pieces around turn them into useful products.
