About Hand Painted Needlepoint Canvases

When choosing a hand painted needlepoint canvas, keep in mind that the designs may be limited edition, or even one of a kind. You might at first be surprised at the price tag, but these designs are done by individually by hand, rather than mass-produced by machine. Most canvases are machine-stamped, and sometimes this can muddle the colors. That would make the design hard to work with no matter how skilled you might be.

Why settle for mediocre quality when you can have superior results with a hand painted canvas? Of course the prices are higher, but the design is unique. Perhaps its value will increase someday, or it could become a family heirloom. In either case, it is worth every penny when you see it that way.

Mass produced art is fine to use if you are a beginner or if you do many projects. When you want something of superior quality, a little different than the rest, or if you are a fan of a certain artist, choose a hand painted canvas. But if you go with the mass produced ones, make sure to buy from a supplier who is choosy about quality. Otherwise, your results may be mediocre.
