10 Reasons Original Art Makes Great Gifts

It may not be the first thing you think of when looking for a present to give as a gift but actually giving original art as a gift can be great for many types of event and occasion. Birthday’s, Weddings, Anniversaries, Leaving work, Retiring, New home / house warming or even to say Thank you, an original piece of art can be just the thing!

Why Original Art makes great Gifts

  1. Art as a gift suits many occasions.
  2. Original Art means your gift will be unique
  3. Small pieces of Art are portable and can be easy to move
  4. Art can be displayed in many ways, framed, mounted and or free standing

Encaustic Art

Encaustic art is created with molten coloured wax, the colours are vibrant and pictures have a wonderful sheen. The painting in my shop are all original and created in encaustic wax using heat tools such as hot irons and various stylus and are on encaustic gloss card. They are signed by me into the wax discreetly and signed and dated by me on the backing, which may be a mount or a hard backing depending on the piece. My artwork is sold online in my own shop here on Art In Wax and via Etsy.

All pieces come in cellophane and have a leaflet detailing that it is original and that it is create in wax, so when given as a gift the receiptant has the information on the original art too.

    lovely blog Hazel and so nice that you are promoting encaustic art.
    Artists are very talented people who are often underestimated. We work hard to earn our money but we do it because we love what we do.

    Great blog Hazel, very well written.

    For me, giving art is a very personal way of saying that you like the recipient enough to have thought about their tastes, interests and decor!

    Thanks for allowing links – here’s my folksy shop where I sell original watercolours, acrylics and oils:

    Art really does make a gift more personal, if I receive something handmade whether art or otherwise.. it shows how much effort someone has put into finding you that perfect present. I like it more!

    I’m really looking forward to Christmas (I know, I said the C word). This is the first year I can make my own original gifts, and after finding my feet on Folksy I will be able to buy some fantastic original items too!

    Great Blog!
