Ethnic-inspired Wall Art:

Create or acquire handmade ethnic-inspired wall art, such as paintings, prints, or collages. Look for artwork that captures the essence of a particular culture, whether it be vibrant folk art, intricate mandalas, or abstract representations of traditional symbols. Hang these pieces strategically to create a visually striking and culturally rich environment.

Customized Wall Clock:

Craft a unique and modern wall clock using minimalist design principles. Combine different materials like wood, metal, acrylic, resin and experiment with unconventional shapes or layouts. This functional and artistic piece will become a focal point on your wall while keeping you on schedule.

Framed Artwork:

Create your own artwork by painting, crafting with modern or ethnic techniques, or using mixed media techniques. Frame your creations in unique or repurposed frames to make them stand out as personalized art pieces. Display them on walls or shelves to add a personal touch to your space.



Abstract Coasters:

Make your own abstract coasters using materials like resin, acrylic paints, or alcohol inks. Create modern and vibrant patterns or abstract designs on round or square coaster molds. These personalized coasters will not only protect your surfaces but also add a touch of modern art to your coffee table or dining area.

Ethnic Tray:

Transform a plain wooden tray into a work of art with ethnic-inspired designs. Paint intricate patterns, motifs, or symbols on the tray using acrylic paints or decoupage techniques. Research traditional designs from cultures that resonate with you. Once completed, use the tray as a centrepiece on your coffee table or as a stylish serving accessory during gatherings.

Hand-Painted Ceramic Mugs:

Transform plain ceramic mugs into personalized pieces of functional art. Use ceramic paints or markers to create intricate designs, patterns, or even write inspiring quotes. Enjoy your morning coffee or tea in a mug that is a reflection of your personal style.

Fluid Frames:

Create unique fluid frames using the mesmerizing technique of acrylic pouring. Choose a variety of canvas sizes or repurpose old frames by removing the glass and backing. Mix acrylic paint with pouring mediums and pour them onto the canvas or frame, allowing the colors to flow and blend in beautiful and unpredictable ways. Tilt the frame to create captivating patterns, or use tools like skewers or straws to manipulate the paint further. Once dry, display these fluid frames on your walls to add a modern and abstract element to your home decor.

Unique Kettle:

Transform a plain kettle into a bold and eye-catching piece of pop art. Use acrylic paints or paint markers to create vibrant and graphic designs on the kettle’s surface. Incorporate iconic pop or a Scandinavian art elements, motifs, or images. Ensure that the paint is heat-resistant and suitable for kitchenware. The unique art kettle will not only be a functional item in your kitchen but also a statement piece that adds a playful and contemporary vibe to your home.
