Choosing the right kind of Print and Frames for the Picture you like!

When it comes to customizing and building an artwork to go on your home/office walls, it takes a lot of thinking and consideration of various elements of the scene.

Below are a few insights to give you a basic idea of different kinds of papers, frames and finishes to go ahead:

A. Print Size

First element to consider is the size of the painting/photograph to go one your wall.  The size of the artwork will decide other factors considerably. For smaller sizes sleek frames will suit and so on. So first decide on the exact size considering other furniture items in the scene etc.

B. Different kinds of Papers

1. Photo Paper – Gloss Finish

Glossy paper is the most common paper for printing photos. It produces a sharp and vibrant image. Glossy paper is also very smooth to touch.

2. Photo Paper – Satin Finish

A satin Photo paper is a result somewhere between matte coated paper and glossy paper. The colors are still vibrant, but the shine is reduced. This can go for both paintings and photographs with a not so glossy effect and yet tints of shiny look and feel.

3. Laminated Photo Paper – Gloss Finish

The best example of a gloss laminated paper is in the form of a postcard. The main photo is on the front, along with a gloss laminate coat applied, which makes it even shinier. The back has the texture of plain card stock.

Laminating the paper makes the colors even more vibrant. It makes the image pop out of the print making it lively.

4. Laminated Photo Paper  — Satin Finish

A lamination is to provide protection to your print – a satin finish lamination on the top of your print will give it a semi-glossy edge. It should be considered when the intent is to make the image sharper and to alter the touch and feel to a lustrous side.

5. Canvas

Canvas is an extremely durable plain-woven fabric and the most popular surfaces to print photos and paintings. It retains the original painting effect and doesn’t necessarily require the glazing for protection.

6. Archival Paper

Archival paper is a specialized type of paper designed not to yellow or deteriorate with age. Excellent for preserving artworks of significant value, it is a cotton rag paper made from cotton pulp. Archival paper or Museum grade paper will ensure durability of the artwork printed on it.

C.      Mount

In the picture framing industry, a mount is a thin, flat piece of paper-based material included within a picture frame, which serves as additional decoration and to perform several other, more practical functions, such as separating the art from the glass.

Photos printed on paper will always be prone to warping or buckling. Mounting aims to prevent this and give photos a solid basis for display by fixing them to a firm backing.

Mounting and matting also give photographers more options when it comes to frame sizes. Instead of being forced to make a photo fit standard frame dimensions or being limited to standard frame sizes for wall display, a mounted photo can be inserted into a much larger frame – or a frame of non-standard dimensions – by cutting the mounting board to fit the frame.

D.     Frames

An artwork should always be framed to give it the right definition and to distinct it on your wall!  The choice of frame depends on the color of the wall and the prominent colors of the artwork. You can either match it or go contrast or go for a standard wooden brown color. Currently two types of frames which one can use are as below:

1. Aluminum Frames

More metallic looking, these frames are suitable for contemporary pictures . They  are plain and are ideal if there is already too much in the picture and you don’t want to draw the focus away from the picture itself.

2. Fiber

Fiber frames can easily replicate the need of a wooden frame without being wooden for real. They come in various textures, sizes, colors and prints and cam go with both a pop art piece and an elegant one depending on the artwork!

All the above mentioned printing and framing options are available on www.artoreal.com once you have bought a photograph and want to give it a customized finish.

Five Essential Points to Consider Before you Start Selling your Art

So you are an artist and you want to sell your art? Great!
But you are a newbie in this field and you don’t know how to! Not so great…
The good news is, we are here to help you out!

With our brand new e-commerce website www.tumbhimall.com which focuses on selling unique art to art lovers, we have compiled a list of valuable tips for you to get useful insights about this phenomenon

1. Understand your Art

First touch point is to know what you are selling here. If it is a painting, ask yourself below questions:

  • What kind of painting is it ? Nature landscape or portrait or Still life or Illustration or Sketch or Folk Art etc.; have you used any specific technique or is it your own style?
  • What is the medium it is in? Have you used a canvas or wood or paper
  • What is the size in scale of your art? Is it a small A4 size or a big bulky frame?
  • What according would be the best price of your artwork?

2. Who is your Target Audience?

After understanding your art, it’s time to understand the people you want to sell it to. Not anyone will buy anything. There are going to be specific segments of buyers who will be interested in your art. For e.g. a homemaker might be interested in a folk art or religious art for home décor, whereas a youngster might indulge in quirky pop-art poster. Understanding your audience will also be influenced by the size of your art – a big bulky painting will attract buyers with bigger homes and deeper pockets, similarly unframed pictures can be easily picked by middle class art lovers.

3. Face value is market value – Positioning your Art

#Photograph- Stick to “Jo dikhta hai , wo bikta hai” mantra! Understand the importance of creating a positive first impression and convert it into sales. Since you are an online seller, photographing your art/product is going to be the most important aspect. It’s advisable to hire a professional product photographer to do so. If that is not possible ask a friend with a decent camera to help you with it. Focus on the lighting so that every color, every stroke of your art is clearly visible. Remember, a tacky photo will shut all the opportunities of your art getting sold.

#Price- what according would be the best price of your artwork?

#Title – what is the name you have given to your artwork? Have you titled it too randomly that your prospective buyers will not be able to find or understand it on the website? We suggest you to keep it standard- generic but attractive. This will make it easier for people looking for a specific kind of artwork. For e.g. If it’s a painting of Buddha you can use a title like “Peaceful Buddha” which is both generic and attractive.

4. Why should people buy your art?

This point is going to test your writing skills just like photography section. But it is very crucial since this is the only scope of connecting with your buyers, making them understand your work so that they end up buying it! You simply need to write the story behind the Art and give the buyer more reasons to bring it home. A long essay is not required; a simple explanation in 2-3 lines about the inspiration or meaning of the art should work just fine.

 

 

5. Where can they buy it?

Since you are selling your art on the website, your customers have to come to the website. Your job here is to bring them to the website where your art is. Word of mouth till date is the best way of marketing, hence spread the word in your network! Making the marketplace popular will only benefit you in the longer since the probability of getting more and more visiting buyers will increase the chances of getting your own art sold.

1.  Because you are an Art Lover

Everyone admires art, including you and the people visiting your home. There is nothing like having a wonderful piece of art up on your wall, may it be a painting by a famous artist, or a pick from a local flea market, or a picture from your most memorable vacation framed and pinned exclusively on your wall- art is art.

…….Even if you aren’t, art is the FAD.

And even if you are not really an art admirer, it can add a distinctive hint to your décor choices. Art is the Fad; you know everyone forms a different opinion about you when they get to know the creative side of yours. And art comes in all sizes and shapes. You might be a scientist but if you frame that diagram of physics that got you your first project, it becomes art!

2. Art is the Only Thing that Will Stay Forever

Art has been the way of life way before we knew languages and technologies, those cave designs have made their way through centuries to be passed on generation to generation and art is the only thing that will stay way past beyond literature and science! It doesn’t grow old and desolate, in fact when it comes to art, old is gold. You would definitely want to bring something home which is evergreen.

3. A Little Showoff on the Walls

A picture sure speaks a thousand words. Available in trillions of colors, you get a lot of scope to play around with colors in accordance with the colors of your walls and other furniture. Where it talks about the artistic side of you, it also becomes matter of a little bit of showoff on the walls where every guest can be mesmerized by your taste of choice.

4. Art is Unique

Art is exclusive. Some artists reserve the right not to reproduce their artworks in any form and just consider, if you get one of those home, you will have something nobody else does!

5. Good Investment Idea Too

A lot of art is authentic, vintage and exclusive. There is an entire industry where art-collectors invest in these kind of art which bears a lot of sale value. So it’s a great idea to invest in a great piece of art and bonus! You don’t have to even keep hidden away in your locker.

Apps Redefining Art

While we all have been admiring deep down in our hearts those amazingly painted frames up on the walls or the beautifully captured and well-timed story telling photographs, the poetries or fictions whose vocabularies astound us or the melodic music that just fills our heart more than the ears –admit it or not but we at the same time are also wondering and aspiring to create some of those artworks ourselves!

Technology today when is replacing even the need of human communication with its super intelligent apps like Siri for i-phones, it’s also in process of making artists!

Check out here how all the tech –savvy artists are using some great apps to enhance and groom their Artistic talents!

Photography
Clicking a picture is one thing (off course the most important one) but editing it beautifully is yet another important part! Most of the pictures that drool us online are ‘edited’ (though we are not talking about the extent of editing here)

  • To set the trend – INSTAGRAM is what we would call a revolution! Bringing editing in 2 simple steps and on mobile phones, it’s the hot cake in Click-and-post photography trend!
  • Photoshop has always been considered the cookie-of-the-professionals and therefore, not many dared to even download it. But now with its app “REVEL” it’s picking up pretty fast!
  • Another very handy app is the BeFunky Photo Editor – offering you instant touch ups and cropping and collage making options!

Fine Arts

Scribbling on the back of class notebooks is what every great artist must have done and also those who are not-that-great artists , but anyway those notebooks are now sophisticatedly replaced by large LED screen mobile devices or tabs or i-pads – giving a digital screen , a few tools to draw, brush and paint and instantly share them with their networks!

  • SketchBook Pro
    Provides a range of professional sketching and painting tools including 60 preset brushes, layer blending and customizable brush settings. Compatible in Android 3.0 and above.
  • Fresco Paint Pro

The app autosaves your work every few minutes and image files can also be exported to Photoshop PSD format for you to continue working on at the office. There’s also a free version, Fresco Paint Lite.

Writing
Well, writing surely comes from within, but so what? Can’t it be edited on the outside, just a few letters here and there and woaah- you get a much better piece in hand than you ever wrote!

There are apps that provide you instant dictionary — and that must needed vocab touch up!

  • Poetreat is simple stylish interface that allows users to easily structure a rhyme scheme. Stuck on a word? It will instantly provide a plethora of options — even slant rhymes (you can find a rhyme for orange). Whether writing in iambic pentameter or traditional haiku, Poetreat provides the structure needed to create a literary masterpiece.
  • Merriam-Webster A dictionary app offers a range of options. The free version, contains the complete Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary but only a limited thesaurus. A comprehensive offering of synonyms and antonyms is available in the $3.99 version. This version also includes illustrations, and foreign words and phrases that are commonly used in English lit

Since we are all not that truly-inspired-from-within community so we surely like a little help on that front! Here are few reading apps that inspire you enough!

  • Scribd – Quick, convenient and largely free access to a huge archive of books and articles, in what is described as a ‘world digital library’.
  • Wattpad- This resource allows mobile access to one of the world’s largest free online publishers of fiction and poetry. With more of an emphasis on previously unpublished work, new writers can compare and contrast their own efforts to the wealth of produce currently available. Once they have seen what their fellow writers are up to, they can share their own work with the easy to use ‘create’ tool

Music
So we may all not be music composers necessarily but isn’t being an Art-Lover almost equivalent to Art-Creator (Otherwise who will appreciate the art being created)

But still we have a few apps here which give you the virtual feel of Music creation and editing!

  • Musyc
    In this one, from Fingerlab , you basically drag and drop little shapes onto the screen, and as they fall, they bang around and generate musical tones. You can draw lines and mazes. The shapes bounce and tumble around the lines and spaces, knock into each other.
  • Garage Band
    This app, from Apple, offers the best of both worlds. It’s loaded with “Smart Instruments” that play notes, chords and patterns with the push of a button. But it also has a set of virtual instruments you can play like the real thing, if you know how. There’s piano, drums, guitar and strings. You can record multiple tracks of your music, add fades and effects. You can also record your own voice, if singing’s your thing, or plug in an actual guitar or bass. The band Ultramods recorded its entire album, Underwear Party, using the mobile version of Garage Band.

Hope this article soothed your artistic + tech savvy nerves and will soon fill your phone with many new downloaded apps!

25 Awesome Ways to Overcome Writer’s Block

Every writer, as some point or the other, faces creative blockage or end of innovation. Nothing new worth penning down comes to mind and that can be quite frustrating. Instead of feeling bad or overwhelmed by that, think of ways to overcome it.

Here we suggest some practical and easily implementable tips.

# Turn of distractions – Unplug the internet, put the cell phone on silent, switch off the TV – this will help you focus.

# Keep a small notebook with you, always. You never know when a bright idea strikes you. Notebook will help you quickly make a note of it and build on it later on.

# Listen to music – music has a calming effect on your mind.

# Prepare a writing schedule and stick to it – Even if nothing comes to mind initially, eventually the mind will get tuned to the schedule and writing will not be difficult. Lot of successful writers have stick to the schedule of ‘500 words every morning’ and that has worked brilliantly for them

# Exercise – Go for walk, go jogging or hit the trade mill. Exercising is good for getting the blood flowing through the brain and gets the creative juices flowing.

# Rest and relax – Sometimes the brain gets tired of thinking and just needs rest to be able to recharge itself.

# Do something other than writing – It could be something creative which takes your mind away from writing like gardening, painting or sculpting.

# Create an outline and write main points – it’s easier to fill in the blanks rather than starting from scratch.

# Eat healthy – a balanced diet with proteins, antioxidants rich food, fresh fruits and vegetables gives the much required nourishment to you.

# Don’t focus on ‘perfect’ first draft – just pen down your ideas and thoughts. You always have time to revise and improvise it later on. Don’t edit your work till you finish it.

# Warm up yourself with freewriting – take a piece of paper and write down everything that comes to your mind about your topic. This will get your mind thinking

# Brainstorm or just talk to your friends and discuss your creative ideas and dilemmas.

# Use prompts and start writing. Many times random words and sentences can give ideas for great stories. Sometimes reading inspiring quotes can be a good start too.

# Read something old which you have written – published or unpublished. It can give you the needed creative boost and confidence convincing you that ‘you can write’.

# Set up deadlines and stick to them. Having a fixed schedule with deadlines always helps in avoiding procrastination.

# Many times, the writer’s block is because of some other deep rooted reasons. Try and identify the reasons and work towards resolving those issues. This will help you reconnect with your creativity.

# Take short breaks from time to time and do some other activities to rejuvenate yourself.

# Change your surroundings. Change in environment can spark new ideas and topics.

# Do you know that colors can trigger your mood? Try writing with a pen in different color!

# Get some fresh air and light – stare away from your notebook/ computer.

# You don’t have to complete your story in a sequence. Try writing as per your mood. Try matching your feelings and emotions like happiness, anxiety, love or despair with one of the characters in your story.

# Avoid noise distractions – go in a room where you can have silence, put the phone on silent mode, avoid loud music. If you like, use earplugs to help you concentrate better.

# Read good books and regularly revisit your favorite portions of the books.

# Don’t compare yourself with other writers – you are unique.

# Join a writing group or be in a company of other writers. With the Internet, it has become very easy to join other writers online. Take inspirations from each other, discuss ideas and grow your skills and confidence.

Protecting Copyrights – What Artists Need to Know

We at Tumbhi are blessed to be surrounded with an amazing community of artists worldwide. We spend a lot of time interacting with them (through online as well as offline mediums) and talk to them about enhancing their art form, nurturing their talent and helping them get opportunities to showcase their talent. With the increase in distribution of art in the online world, lot of times, we get questions about protection of artworks. So we thought of compiling an article to give a snapshot of various ways of protecting artworks in different categories.

 

Photography

As a photographer, if you want to take advantage of the millions of opportunities the online world offers, then you can’t avoid putting up your pictures online. There also exists a category of web users who are not very particular about copyright information and tend to use any photograph from the Internet without giving due credits to the photographer. To protect your photos from such users, here are some of the ways you can use:

  • Put copyright notice directly on your photos. You can use statement like “Copyright <<Year>> All Rights Reserved”
  • Watermark the images – Yes, the quality and impact of the image might get hampered, but at least your image is protected
  • Disable the ‘right click a copy’ option on the web pages
  • Crop images into multiple pieces and place the pieces in such a way that it appears like one photo but any web user will need to download individual photos and combine them together before using the picture.
  • Always upload compressed images
  • Upload smaller images or thumbnails

Writing

Remember, you, as the original author of your work, own all the copyright for your work, unless you assign the rights to a third party. Your work is automatically protected the moment you write it down in tangible format. Until March 1989, for receiving copyright law protections, a formal copyright notice was required to be placed on the work but that is no longer the case. However, it is always recommended that you add a copyright notice with your own name and year – this will tell the readers that you are serious about copyright. Secondly, you can register your script with associations such as the Writers Guild of America or Film Writer’s Association in India. The registration helps members in protecting their work in case there is any copyright violation.

Short Films

In case of films, to qualify for protection under copyright laws, your film must be your original creation. Additionally, it should be attached into a medium. Copyright laws are applicable even without registration, however, if you register your work with Copyright office and make it available in public record, you become eligible for additional rights and protection. The copyright begins as soon as you create your work and continues for your lifetime. It is recommended that you put a copyright notice in the end-credits of the film. If you want to grant access to someone else to use your film, you must first give them license to use it and it is suggested that you use a written license. If someone uses your work without your permission, its infringement and you can take legal action against that person.

Music

Your music creation is protected under copyright law if it is written in music notation or recorded on tape or in some other form. Here we provide some more recommendations for music composers and singers to protect their work:

  • Always write the international copyright symbol ©, your name as the copyright owner and the year in which the work was written or published.
  • Put your music creation in some tangible form – This could be on a CD, DVD, tape, or written as sheet music
  • Register your work with National Copyright office
  • Date stamp your creation
  • Many publishers including iTunes already use a technology called DRM which protect the music composition from being copied to other devices
  • When you are uploading your work online, use digital watermarking
  • If possible, upload a low quality work and provide users an option to buy or contact you for high quality work

We do hope that these tips help you in knowing your rights and available protection methods to assist you in protecting your art work.

Take advantage of the vast world of Internet to reach out to a wider audience while being cautious and aware of your rights!

Attending a Photography Workshop? Read this!

The world is evolving very fast and there is something new to learn every day. An interactive workshop offers one of the opportunities to learn from experts and connect with some passionate photographers.

Talking about Photography, in recent times, there has been a surge of photography workshops – online, in classrooms as well as on the field. The choice can leave you confused and make it difficult to choose the one which best fits your requirements. And even after choosing the best workshop, its finally up to you to make the best of it.

So here we thought that we can put together a small checklist to help you get maximum from your photography workshop:

#1: Check the Syllabus

You don’t want to get into a workshop and realize that you are already an expert at what is being taught at the workshop. When you decide to attend a workshop, decide on a particular topic or skill you would like to know about and learn. And when you do your search for a suitable workshop, have a close look at the syllabus and be sure that you will learn something new. In case of any questions about the syllabus, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the organizers and know the details.

#2: Review the Instructor and Feedback

It is important that the instructor is not only knowledgeable but also is a veteran in teaching. Check how long he / she has been taking workshops and instructing. Gather feedback and confirm that the instructor holds credibility.

#3: Knows the Costs

Be sure that you know what all is included in the costs of the workshop and more importantly, what is not included. You are attending a workshop to learn and there should not be any unwanted distractions while you are attending that. Have a complete clarity beforehand so that you are better prepared.

#4: Be active, ask questions and clarify your doubts

Once you are in the workshop, make sure that you are very active. Don’t hesitate to ask questions. Feel free to clarify your doubts – no matter how trivial they may sound. By asking questions and discussing, you are also helping others in learning more.

#5: Make your notes

Make notes of all the new things you learn at the workshop. These notes can come handy when you want to revise something post the workshop and try out the learning practically.

#6: Connect with fellow participants

You learn a lot through collaboration and that can happen only when you connect with the fellow participants, initiate discussions with them and facilitate brainstorming. If possible, connect with the participants before the workshop and start discussing the topics which are going to be taught at the workshop. That will help you know if you need to learn something or hone some skills before the workshop to be able to get the most from it. Even after the workshop, be in touch with fellow participants. That is your audience for bouncing ideas and getting feedback on your work anytime in future.

#7: Share Your Experiences

Leverage the true spirit of social media and share your experiences and learning through Blog/ Facebook/ Twitter or whichever way you feel comfortable. Sharing your experiences and knowledge will help you enhance what you have learnt at the workshop, build on it and further improve.

#6: Creative Writing Prompts for Poetry

Need that one clue to get your creativity flowing? Here comes a long list of creative writing prompts for you.

http://www.creative-writing-now.com/creative-writing-prompts.html

Can Technology Take Over Art?

Do you think technology can take over art?

Do you also think that editing wins over actual photography light and effect technique now? Or does canvas painting take a back seat when it comes to digital painting or digital art?

We may have a mixed bag of emotions and responses but the fact is that the art has to begin with yourself. It has to be there, in you – the artist within you. No doubt technology may put the fallen pieces together to make the art look more happening and technically sound.

The need is to understand that technology is there only as a support system, a backbone to present our art in a better fashion, but technology itself could not be art- not at all! One may be brilliant at editing photographs but for an awesome editing, the photograph basically needs to be in right frame! Technology is there to enhance the art and not to be declared as an art itself! 

Talk about digital painting – that is one art which is possible only with the required gadgets – so in one way, that could be a technology converted to an art. But just think for a while, does its really start there? In fact, the art was already there in you and now that you are technically equipped, you can make this beautiful digital painting!

We truly believe that possessing certain gadgets and being technically aware of certain tools and apps don’t necessarily make an artist! The art has to come from within and then only the ART can happen for real!

Just be the Artist and the technology will follow!
