DECORATIVE ART & DESIGN IS NOW A HOBBY
My decorative design hobby is a result of my passion for Decorative Art & Design. That was my passion for long periods of my adult life.
At this point in time, as a retired person, I have come full circle to revisit the blissfulness of creation as a decorative design hobby. Just to refresh everyone’s memory, be sure to take a look at the video of my visit to ‘the Our Home Show’. It introduces my original 5-step decorative painting process.
I had reached the height of my ‘decorative hand’. Therefore if I was going to revisit decorative art & design, I needed to find new tools as well as techniques.
Before I embarked on my new project, I wanted to refresh my and everyone’s memory of my wet decorative painting method. This is the kind of decorative painting I was doing professionally.
DECORATIVE DESIGN HOBBY: NEW PROJECTS, NEW MATERIALS
It is my nature to try new things. Going from wet media to obtain certain results is quite different from going to dry media. Each has its challenges as well as pros and cons. It may take some experimenting to see what works best for you with a decorative design hobby.
A combination here of even more new materials. By the way, I incorporated one of my favorites, oil cloth. As you can see, there is so much that can be used to create a novel reused furnishing as part of a decorative design hobby. Here’s the original post demonstrating how I reupholstered the stool.
I had come a long way from my early days as a decorative painter. So be patient with your own process. Whether you wish to try your hand at traditional decorative painting, a wet medium or work with the new ‘dry’ materials I have been using, you can have great fun. In addition, the results can be very attractive. So give it a try. If you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact me.
