New Customized Beach Sand Painting w Natural Seashells and Ocean Waves
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Personalized orders for Christmas delivery need to be received no later than December 1, 2016.
This new beach sand painting is the replacement for our original painting. We had to find a new resource for the shadowbox frames, but the original size was not available. This painting is bigger and better! There is more room for your names, so the restrictions for the number of characters per line were removed. You can now fit multiple names, or even a short phrase. The letters have gotten better with a playful flow, as you may have noticed with the paintings in my gallery that were done for ArtFire buyers.
The shadow box frame is again sand painted with an interesting texture befitting a beach theme. The slate blue sand has some small bits of shells ground up throughout, which is like natural beach sand that contains broken shells. The inner edge, which is wider than the original frame, is painted with the same type of sand in a green color.
This frame is more stylish, with a rounded profile, rather than a flat front surface. Two additional features of the new frames are an inner wooden spacer, which we built and added to the frame, and a hard fiberboard backing.
Another bright side of finding a different source, is that these frames are available in additional colors, which we can offer for $10 less than the sand painted frame. The additional finishes available are: Honey, Cherry, and Black. They are listed separately.
Since my original prototype was created, I have found some good resources for shells, which are even more beautiful! I have found some new varieties, which are interesting, such as the sundial shells. They are glued firmly into place, surrounded by natural sand in a mixture of colors to add to the richness of the piece.
Yet another improvement comes from a glossy medium that is now being used for the waves. It has a stiffer consistency and holds the peaks of the waves. The glossy surface reflects light like the ocean, achieving more realistic water effects.
Treat someone to a memory of a day at the beach, or have a memory created for yourself!
