Is a great place to shop for up and coming artists. Inventory is constantly changing. So check it out often.
I will start with some paper you can paint on for practice first then work up to brushes, Arches Watercolor PaperBuy BLICK acrylic painting supplies! As for brushes, I would not buy a set I would buy them individually. Because you really don’t need them all to start with. But will want to use them later after you get the feel of the brushes and know what to do with them. Although some times a small set can be A frugal deal. If you click on these links and go the product and buy, I will get a bit of commission. I won’t get rich selling 5 & 10 dollar items. lol
Utrecht art supplies mean just that. They supply not only supplies for painting but sculpting, drafting, and printmaking to name a few. These brushes, both sets are good for acrylic and oil. they have a mix of natural and synthetic bristles. And the price is really nice. Once you get into this store you can decide if it is best for you. I truly believe that when it comes to acrylic painting, a good brush is worth a million.
I love these pads. I used them like crazy when I was practicing painting. And I still keep it on hand to try things I have never tried before.
This is a nice inexpensive brush set to start with. I am kind of hooked on brushes. If I go to a craft store to by canvas, I always come home with brushes. I love them. They are my not so secret habit. I have so many. but I could use more filberts. lol.
This paint set picture is so tiny. but it doesn’t help to enlarge it, it gets blurry. Well, this set comes in both 20ml and 60 ml tubes. And I really love galleria paint. It is just the perfect consistency.
Blick has several sets too. They even have the colors divided into shades. One is Autumn than Summer. Also Earth and Portrait. Other brands are Liquidex, Golden, Revees and Winsor & Newton. A lot of variety. I usually get Liquidtex. It has a nice consistency and the price is right for a starving Artis like me. There are tons of us out there.
These come in several sizes. and several sized sets. So it is your choice depending on your needs. I have not tried these yet. So I can’t give you my opinion.
These wooden boxes come with a keyhole in the back. And in all sizes. I believe they even have them in the round.
Here they are. They are very nice. and come in all sized up to an 11 by 14. But some brands have larger ones. The brands are Blick Primer, Blick Studio, Federics, Raymar, and Richeson to name just a few. They just have one kind where I go So that is all I have tried. I will have to start getting them through here so I can try some different kind. It should be smooth with a nice tooth to the fabric. Nice and smooth. You can sand it with fine sandpaper then apply another coat of gesso. Artist like to use the stretched canvas. I really like the feel of these. the canvas will have a little bit of giving to it, unlike a hardboard. They are very nice. There you go for now. I hope both your shopping and you painting all go well.
Good morning. Rise and shine it is time to buy painting supplies. I don’t know about you but love to get painting treasures in the mail. Here are more links. We will see how it works with my typing. I love to learn from books because I don’t have to keep pausing a video. And if you want to keep it forever you can. I know for me, if I haven’t done something for a while I forget how to do it. I am 63 years old and the memory is not getting any better. Next, I will find you one of those stay wet pallets. I have one and would not do without it. I put the colors I need in it and have it for the entire painting. Cheap and fantastic. I need to tell you I am an associate of blicks, and if you follow one of these links and purchase then I will get a bit of commission.
Here is the Sta-wet paint pallet.
Blick Studio Acrylics – Set of 6 colors, 120 ml tubesSorry the image had issues and made this page a mess. But with 6 primary colors, you can mix all colors. Color mixing is a good skill to learn. That way you don’t have to buy all the paints. And second, many times you are not going to find the color you want.
And this is a start-up kit, just in case you haven’t tried this before. Blicks carries a multitude of different Brands of paints and in different price ranges. I will put up a couple of different colors of each brand. I order some colors I needed. And I bought brands I hadn’t Then you can look for the color you want. And it does good to try a different brand once in a while. Then you will know what brand you like best. These are the little bottles like you can pick up at Walmart or Michaels.
DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint – In all colors. but I will share it twice. They go to different colors. Then when you get there select the color you need.
DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint –
Tri-Art Finest Quality Artist Acrylics – Viridian Hue, 120 ml jar-This one is a bit expensive but you do get a good amount of paint.
Chroma Atelier Interactive Artists’ Acrylics – Jaune Brilliant, 250 ml jar-The chroma paint has a unique property, you can go back after it has dried and rehydrated it so you can blend it with another color.
M. Graham Artists’ Gouache – Cerulean Blue, 15 ml tube-This is a highly pigmented paint for professionals. There are no fillers just highly pigmented bright pure colors. Any “professional” paints tend to be expensive.
Utrecht Artists’ Acrylic Paint – Brilliant Blue, 5 oz tube-Made in Brooklyn, New York. are treasured for there brilliance, longevity, outstanding lightfastness and Rich texture.
Utrecht Artists’ Acrylic Paint – Cadmium Red Medium, 5 oz tube-Here is another Utrecht paint. They have perfecting their paints for years. 5oz. is 150ml.
-And they have paint in a lot of different sizes.
Pebeo Mat Pub Acrylic Paint – Permanent Green, 500 ml-Right now it is 41% off list price. So that is a really good deal for 500 ML. jar.
Montana Gold Acrylic Professional Spray Paint – Paris, 400 ml can-Spray paint because artist come in all mediums.
Chroma Acrylic Mural Paint – Glam Rock (Gold), 16 oz jar-I did a few murals in the past. You need paint that colors well. You don’t want to go back and do a second coat.
Decocolor Acrylic Jumbo Paint Marker – Green-This is a jumbo marker. Some items are hard to find. And a marker the size you need is one of them. Blick carries a bunch of different sizes.
Decocolor Acrylic Paint Marker – Light Green-Another marker, different size
Now I will go look at brush sets and see what I can find generally you do not want natural hair for acrylics. They are entirely to whimpy. Use a good soft not stiff man-made fiber brush. This first set is on sale now but is kinda spend at list price.
Loew-Cornell Brush Wrap Set – Oil/Acrylic, Set of 18This is a nice set. Meant for beginners, is wrapped in a cloth organizer and the price is economical.
That is about all I will post today about blicks. I have another vendor who has an equally impressive line up of products. And I will be covering that next in my post for tomorrow. Please leave a comment below.
Blick Art Materials
My idea is 10 fold. I want a place for all painters to come. To sell their creations, so we have professional paintings for sale, get their favorite supplies like canvases, brushes and many brands of paint, at reasonable prices , and trust. Trust that you are getting the supplies you ordered. Trust that the paintings are better than what you see on this high-quality format. Trust that all your information is secure.
Originally It was going to be Acrylic paintings and Oil paintings. I have decided to have a section on commission work that can be personalized to the individual receiving the gift. And watercolor paintings. I will have beginner acrylic painting sets, beginner oil painting sets, and watercolor sets. There will be supplies in other mediums. Because what is wrong with doing a mix of mediums on acrylic paintings. Mix it up. Use marker, pens, painting pens, or ink. It is your creation, do it. One of my favorite acrylic painters goes over some of his paintings with Oil Paints.
Commissioned work will be limited as to what we paint on. You pick the item and give us some idea of what small picture you would want to be put on it. An email including the picture would be needed. We would give you a bid prior to starting so you have an Idea as to cost. And we would require 50% down before we start. Then when it is done we can ship it to you or the person it is meant for. that person if you desire. Small items are little wooden boxes, Christmas bulbs for all occasions, and wooden spoons. This is a new store and I plan on continued growth. Ideas are welcome. Leave comments at the bottom of the pages. We will see what we can do.
So sit back and relax. Find something that inspires you, and give it a try. Thank You, God bless. Don’t forget to share with your favorite social media. Mine is facebook and Pinterest.
