Easy Craft Ideas

Time to have a little fun! Here are some easy craft ideas to play and experiment with.

You probably specialize in and be highly skilled at one type of craft, but it's always fun and sometimes smart from a business perspective to build skills in other areas.

Learning to work with different types of media and possibly incorporating those ideas or techniques into your main medium can provide new inspiration for you and can help to make your work stand out from the crowd. Plus, it's always fun to experiment with different types of crafts!

Chinese Brush Painting
Before you jump in, it is important to know that Chinese brush painting is not an easy art that you can learn in a few lessons. However, it is a rewarding and challenging discipline worth trying if you are interested in learning an elegant and beautiful way to paint.

Do be aware that Chinese brush painting supplies can be difficult to find, particularly if you are looking in a small town (and I've even had challenges finding supplies in a large city). Also, you nee to use brushed, paints and paper specifically designed for brush paining in ore to get the desired effect.

Happily, there are some great online companies that sell Chinese brush painting supplies.
