Not everyone can be a great painter or sketch artist, and even those who can are usually out of a job. While paintings are glamorous and good to decorate walls, art is necessary for daily life amidst our ordinary things. You could argue that it is more critical to own artfully designed clothing, furniture, and beautiful books than it is to have a giant Jackson Pollock on the wall. After all, we use those items daily and come more in contact with them than paintings. Shouldn’t they be beautiful too?
That’s why here are some smaller-scale art business ideas you can start to make life just a bit more beautiful.
Epoxy resin has been gaining popularity fast in the last two years. People have been using it for furniture, art, and even floor and ceiling boards. Many kinds of resin art are possible to do, and all the information on them is available for free online.
You can create beautiful resin table-tops, small landscape boards, or even resin tiles for walls and shelves. They’re easy to make and require little mental exertion. The hardest thing will be to wait while the resin dries.
Custom clothing designs
From painting on clothes with fabric paint to sewing embroidery on them or tie-dying them, there are a dozen ways to spice up a piece of clothing. You can make or your designs or take inspiration from what’s already been made. Once you have a decent amount of work, build a portfolio of images to show people.
Start an online account for your business and display your work in the best light possible. People can choose to buy from the rack or ask you for custom orders.

Design your stickers with whatever medium you like. The designs can be exciting and straightforward, relatively easy to make. Then you will need to have them printed out through a particular printing machine for stickers. You can use the ones in shops or buy one. Many videos are available online that give you details on how it is done.
Even two-year-olds make these. These are meant to be simple, cute, elegant, and charming. The most important aspects of designing a gift card are its shape and color palate. You can cut them in interesting shapes or have them unfold like origami to add an element of sophistication. The colors have to be cohesive and not too heavy. You can learn all this quickly online, so don’t worry about it.
Just like with the custom clothing design idea, you have to build up a portfolio for this before you can start selling it. People can choose to buy the ones on sale or request custom orders. You can personalize the cards by adding little details that would allude to the customer or whoever it’s meant for.
