Dishware is something that everyone uses throughout their lives. Instead of eating off those plain, boring dishes, why not make the dishware look more attractive with the help of some painting? People clamor for individual accents throughout their home, and many people would be more than thrilled to purchase beautiful dish sets for entertaining or daily life. You can provide the goods for this demand; all it takes is a hefty dose of creativity!
By painting dishes, you could consider taking orders from friends or relatives for specific designs or motifs on their dishes. Some people may prefer having pictures of plants on their dishware while others may prefer having structural designs on the dishware. Then of course, there may be clients who may need to have paintings depicting holidays- perhaps Christmas trees, Easter eggs, or Thanksgiving Pilgrims! People will ask for a myriad of designs, and if you cater towards custom made designs, you can ask for a higher monetary value per dish.
Of course, if you do not want the hassles of taking individual orders from friends and relatives, you could consider painting on a wholesale basis. You could paint a large number of dishes then place these for sale through the Internet or arrange to have them sold at dishware shops in your area. You will still sell many plates, but your asking price will not be as high per the custom made orders. There are pros and cons to wholesale and custom made, so choose the right course of action for you!
Another possibility is that you could paint for a dishware supplier. You could paint their dishware for them, and need not worry abut whether the dishware is sold or not. The supplier pays you for your artistry and design; the task of selling the dishware lies in their hands! So in a way, this seems to be the better of all the choices as you only have to concentrate on painting attractive designs on the dishware- nothing else! A good way to find dishware suppliers is to use internet search engines - there are more dishware suppliers than what you may think. Furthermore, you don't necessarily have to be in the vicinity of the dishware plant.
Of course, to start on your dishware painting services, you will first need to have some vibrant ceramic paints of striking colors. Several painting brushes will be necessary for this service, and make sure you are full of creativity and ideas to paint on the dishware! It will not behoove you to skimp on the painting supplies - the higher quality of paint and tools you use, the finer your dishes will become. Upon completion of the painting, it may be your responsibility to wash and dry the dishes to be sure the paint does not come off.
Painting dishware can prove to be a rewarding and interesting business, especially if you make this your own hobby; you will be utilizing your skill to generate an income for you! However, when starting out on your dishware painting service, make sure that you start the business in a legal and right way. Get some guidance on this matter from your lawyer, to avoid unnecessary complications in the future. Laying a good foundation is imperative to building a strong, stable business.
While you may rack your brains on getting inspirational pictures for your dishware, there are people out there who may steal your ideas and copy your pictures for painting their dishware. To protect your talent and designs, you will have to get copyright rights on your paintings and dishes. The copyright forms are not particularly complicated, and you can receive a copyright form by visiting the US Copyright Office's website or via your lawyer. Should there be an infringement on your intellectual or artistic properties, you will be very relieved to have a copyright!
Once you have established your business, the copyright, secured your supplies, and painted your dishes, it is time to sell your goods. One thing to remember when selling your painted dishware is to make sure it is priced appropriately. Overpricing may hamper your business, and under pricing may affect the long term success of your business. However, if you do mark the right desired price on the painted dishware, you will soon find a long clientele list for your business!
