Our “How To Start Your Driftwood Art Collection” blog presents the basics of starting a collection from scratch and how to be an avid collector. These ideas can be applied to the beginning of any driftwood art collection with the same results.
The most important aspect of starting a new collection is figuring out what you like and what you are willing to pay for. Without these two aspects you will never be able to find pieces you enjoy or items worth paying for. So, I recommend doing a lot of research on topics that interest you before even considering buying anything.**
There are many different things that can be done with driftwood, so make sure you find something that interests you before investing in a collection. Once you know what interests you, stick with it. There are so many different types of driftwood art out there that its best not to dabble in all of them at once. You will just become overwhelmed and unsure of what you really want, which will make it harder for you to get started or to find particular pieces that interest you.*
Once you know what interests you, go out and buy some books about it!

Driftwood art is a fun hobby for anyone interested in art, be it an amateur or professional. It’s not as hard as you may think to start your own driftwood art collection.
You will need some basic supplies, such as tools and paints. You can get a variety of tools and paints at any hardware store. In addition to the tools and paints, you will need a few pieces of driftwood. You can go to a beach near your home or venture out to the ocean. The important thing is that you collect the wood yourself; this way you can be sure that the driftwood you have is unique and special to your collection. Also, you are less likely to find any unwanted species of organisms on the wood if you collect it yourself.
Once you have found some driftwood, go ahead and start your collection. The first step is to make sure that each piece of wood is cleaned. You can use sandpaper or sanding blocks for this purpose. Once all the dirt has been removed from the wood, apply a sealant so that it does not get dirty again. You might want to wait until after painting the piece before sealing it with a sealant such as varnish or lacquer; you do not want your paint job ruined
I just started my own driftwood art collection. I have a few pieces that I got from a friend, and I have been wanting to start a collection for some time now. I was inspired by an article about driftwood art on the website http://www.driftwoodarts.com. (see link below). It had some beautiful pictures of driftwood art and lots of useful information regarding how to collect and display your own collection.
As I am going to be working with driftwood, I was wondering how to go about this. Is there a specific way to collect driftwood? Where should I look? What is the best and safest places to collect it in? Should I go out during high tide or low tide, and what kind of tides are considered safe during collecting?
I am in search of a few more pieces to add to my collection and I just want to get as much information as possible. I also have questions on how to start a driftwood art collection. What are some suggestions for galleries that could hold my work and what is the best place to find these galleries?
How can you tell if driftwood comes from man or nature? What do you do with small pieces of driftwood that you find but don’t want to use in your art because they are too small?”
