New Reverse Painted Glass Sign Art

Posted on June 19, 2018 by Tara Cole

The sun is shining and the light is bright and dazzling!  I've started adding some framed painted glass sign art into my product range, it's an ancient art that I've adapted to suit my signwriting style for interiors and gifts.  I'm using a clear as glass acrylic to avoid any smashing and cracking during shipping, it gives exactly the same effect as glass without the danger!

I'm using metal flake and gilding on these and with the clear as glass back they are really stunning and very unusual, these are deep frames you can hang them on the wall or have them free standing on any flat surface. 
The paintwork is done on the reverse side so the front is completely flat and the artwork is protected.
You can find these under the the Custom Word Sign Section, and of course you can contact me for your own words, names, colours and designs.

Waddesdon Christmas Market

Posted on November 21, 2017 by Tara Cole

I had a fabulous week at Waddesdon Manor last week as part of the first week of their incredible Christmas Market.  It was lovely to meet so many new customers and make some great friends with fellow traders.  My Tree of Life Crystal Tees sold like mad and I'm working my way through the orders they will be dispatched at the end of the week.

I highly recommend the event, it is on until 10 December with some traders changing each week, some stay for the whole 4 weeks but there is always something new to look at, plus lots of delicious food.

As darkness falls the main house is lit up with a beautiful lights and music extravaganza and there are amazing things to look at all over the estate and inside the house.

Hand Printed Clothing Collection

Posted on October 19, 2017 by Tara Cole

A little change of direction and diversification for Tango & Twist, I've learnt to screen print it's taken a little bit of time and alot of practice but I love it and I hope you will love the first collection of Ladies Long Sleeve Tee Shirts.  All hand printed with a non-solvent ink that stays soft with the fabric and doesn't go plasticky and flakey.  I've sourced ethically made clothing in super soft flowy jersey and soft cotton and elastane that feel gorgeous to touch and good to wear and I'm using mainly metallic ink with a few black prints thrown in.

To make these Tees really special I add matching metallic Swarovski crystals on the shoulders and sleeve line, a sprinkle of twinkles.  You can dress these tops up or down and I'm sure they will become a favourite in your wardrobe.

There's lots more photos to come and more designs, if you would like to be kept up to date please join my mailing list.

Brighten Up Your Walls For Spring

Posted on March 20, 2017 by Tara Cole

Hurrah for the small taste of Spring we've been treated to, the workshop is warming up and  I'm adding lots of new custom sign designs here in the shop. The perfect way to give a fresh look to your interior is some new wall art, and don't forget I'm happy to work to your colour or style choice.

Pop over to my Instagram page for a look at some of the commissions I've been busy working on including this very special one that went out for a Christmas Proposal, at 1 metre squared it was huge!

Metallic Custom Light Up Signs

Posted on November 03, 2016 by Tara Cole

I had an order recently for a custom light up alphabet sign in gold and copper, I love working to customer colours as it often gives me the chance to use different colours that  I might not usually choose.  The gold and copper together are just gorgeous, I posted a picture on Instagram and got over 100 likes from all over the world!  Think I might do a few more, copper and bright blues and silver and pinks.  You can choose the colours for your custom signs on the product pages.
