1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Going Off to College Gallery~! :) on: September 07, 2008 04:25:26 PM

This is me in my dorm with my super soft fingerless gloves on.  Yay!

I also got a resuable and reversable shopping bag.  I already used this at the grocery store! 

She also sent me a few extra goodies including a notebook, some tea, a little Aztec pride charmy business and a nice long letter.

Thank you soo much for the package, portmanteaux!  I loved it all and I am very excited to try your tea.

you know i used spray paint on some tshirts and i wash it on hot and cold with all my other laundry all the time.  it's never washed out or faded - i'm surprised, but have you given it a shot?

I've got all the goods for my items.  I'm just trying to decide how I want to go about it... and I'm trying to get the time.

5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Selling original paintings! on: July 28, 2008 12:17:34 AM
So I've been recently thinking about selling my art.  I have no experience in this whatsoever - whether it is best to begin with selling prints, or should I just go balls to the wall and sell my original pieces.  There are several pieces I am interested in selling, including colored pencil, pastel and several acrylic paintings.

So my questions are:
Whats the best website to sell original art and prints on?  Ebay?  Etsy?  How long does it take?

Would it be a better idea to sell my more contemporary pieces in local restraunts that put up art?

How about prints?  Would it be okay to just get a cd with all my scans on it, so I can decide about prints later, and then at the same time have high quality scans of all my work for myself? 

How much should I charge for various things?  I have about 7 colored pencil drawings, but I'm scared that the subject matters would not sell... they are all to the theme of freak show.  How much do colored pencil drawings run?  I have a few acrylic paintings of landscapes which I think would sell, but for how much?  I'm unfortunatly not willing to sell for like 50 dollars, but I don't know if I would be able to find a buyer for much higher.

Finally, is the fact that I am a student artist (as in just graduated from high school.)  going to deter any people from buying my work?  Or should I just leave that fact out?

I'm just lost.  If you even have a guide on how to start selling your work, that would be great.  Any other advice is appriciated!  And I'll try and post some of my pieces up so you can get the idea tommorow!  Thanks.
