Welcome to the gallery of creative craft work for home decorations, gifts and collectibles..
Majored and skilled in graphics design, I expanded my knowledge in the craft of glass painting a couple of years ago and has since got hooked to it. Hence, the birth of 'PAINTINKS'.
The variety of glass and ceramic wares featured below are all artistically and exclusively designed and hand painted. You can also have them personalised to your preference; as gifts, wedding favors, premium items, interior decorating items or even for practical use.
Here's a good way to give that old glass or ceramic wares a face-lift or simply spruce up new ones to add colour and life to your collection!
GJ 06 I was given a free hand to look for a suitable type of glass jar for my customer to put her spices on her kitchen top. While scouting around at IKEA, I finally got my eyes hooked on this particular jar as the shape is unique and has a light grey tint.
For the design, instead of using spices as the motif, I opted to use some of the ingredients normally used in our daily cooking: Chilli, Onion, Lemon, Lime, Spring Onion and Mushroom. Designs are painted on 2 sides with white outline; and the top and bottom borders are painted around the jars.
The unique shape of the jar inspired me to add colours and design to it; and somehow was inclined to use sunflower motif on alternate squares, and played around with autumn colours. I used pewter colour for the outline to match the jar lid.
Suggestions for usage: Fill it with cookies, lollipops, jelly beans or candies. Or, remove the lid and fill with potpourri as table display. Add creativity by replacing the lid with a matching ribbon wrapped around the mouth of the jar!
As per customer's request, Paisley motif was used. I chose white outlines filled with earthen tones to match the existing interior decorations in her living room. Designs were painted on all sides. It took me about 2 weeks to complete and I must say that this is my favourite piece so far..
CB 03 Originally this is a ceramic soup bowl but I figured it will be of better use as a potpourri bowl instead. I used orange as the main background colour and created a rustic look in the hollow centre by adding gold and brown; and gold-stamped leaf design around the rim.
I got the inspiration to paint this Sea World design from a children's book. The vibrant multi-colours will surely get your attention anywhere! Great as a table display or you can use it as an actual fish bowl.
GJ 02 I was commissioned to transform these plain clear cookie jars into something lively and colourful. So I applied graphic-styled images of vegetables using white outlines on the flat lids; and to compliment the look I painted the base of each jar to match the colour of it's respective lid.
GV 05 This was a commissioned work. The customer loves roses and requested to have the theme in purple shades. I outlined the roses in white to make it batik-like and embellished it with matching rhinestones. Designs are painted on all sides.
CWD 01 This was a commissioned work; a wall display for an office of a business owner. The customer wanted the theme colour to be yellow, red and black (the corporate colours of Malay College of Kuala Kangsar or MCKK). I decided to use 3 ceramic fish plates as the motif; and as according to Chinese belief, fish and the number 3 aregood for prosperity. Since the colours are bright and striking; I box-framed it in black with gold trimmings.
GV 02 I got the idea to use spider web as a motif when I was flicking through my nephew's Spider Man comic book. I used white for the outline as what a real spider web looks like; and fill them with indigo and blue hues to give it a modern contemporary look and embellished it with matching rhinestones. This piece took me about 3 weeks to complete as the design practically covers the whole vase surface.
