Introduction to Decorative Painting

There are a variety of decorative paintings. The definition of decorative is very broad and abstract, so different people may have a different understanding. But in general, it refers to painting with decorative meaning an independent art form. It differs from ordinary image and drawing in that it has the appreciation and decorative value to meet people’s decorating needs. This type of painting is defined in the Fine Arts volume of the Encyclopedia as follows: decorative painting is characterized by the focus on appreciation of content, some exaggeration in a pattern, and spatial correlation in color, which generally does not emphasize true light, shadow, and perspective in three-dimensional space.

Instead of trying to figure out what painting is like, simply allow yourself to be fooled by painting. See what emotions, sensations or memories emerge. Let your eyes relax and travel around the piece without expectations. Examine the colors, shapes, materials, surface and how they interact with each other. Take your time. Let the painting “speak” to you. Observe how the various elements such as shape, color, and shape affect you. An intricately detailed, vibrant painting will affect you differently than a calm, fresh Malevich.

In fact, the type of decoration and the areas involved are very broad. Depending on the environment, it can be divided into decorative figure painting, home decorative painting, etc.; in terms of nature, it can be divided into abstract painting, modern painting; from the production material, it can be divided into oil painting, dynamic painting, wood painting and photographic painting; in the production method, it can be divided into decorative printing painting, decorative assembly painting and handmade decorative painting. In addition, as a work of craftsmanship, decorative painting involves several aspects, such as art, appreciation and craftsmanship. Therefore, we can say that this is a professional product that brings together diversified factors.

There are many production methods in painting. The choice of the different methods has a big difference in the entry and purchase of equipment as well as in the planning of the shop. For example, the production of decorative printing paint only needs to buy some common devices, such as computers, scanners, printers and inkjet printers.

But if you want to make your own frame, you must enter the frame materials as well as the related production tools (because the frame materials are divided into plastic, wood, metal, and glass, so the tools are distributed according to the material). If you also prepared to make frameless painting, flower mud painting, hanging painting, fabric painting and three-dimensional paper sculpture painting to set up a decorative painting production workshop, then you should buy more materials and equipment, such as colored mud, photos, special glue, hot melt adhesive film materials, as well as cold rolling machines, flat presses and corner-cutting machines.
