Shade Tales Unfold In 'The Secret Lives Of Color' - A Palette-Popping Hardcover Book!

Review: "As a textile artist, I can say this book is a real page turner. It goes much farther than most other books on the use of color as it focuses on the history of the color itself. It sparked so many ideas and discussions with other artists. I highly recommend it to add some richness to you color choices." - Mrs. Hook

Shine A Light On Creativity: Copy Board Light Tracing Box For Artists!

Review: "No hesitation on giving this 5 stars. I recently got back into shooting film. This unit is great for viewing negatives. Super bright! Light weight. Portable. Easy to operate on/off and brightness levels. Can hold two sheets of negatives side by side. Love the rubberized feet so it doesn't slide around on the table. Well packaged. Seems solid enough, but would still want to handle it with care. Highly recommended!" - skookum

Oh by the spirits, these things are SO. BLOODY. HELPFUL. if you’re a detailed drawer like me, and don’t like to see the erase lines, you NEED ONE OF THESE. I trace my sketches like, 3 times, then finally put them on normal non-lined paper. These help with cleaning up messy sketch designs, and making exact copies.

Spark Miniature Magic: Greenhouse Kit For The Artsy Soul In Your Life!

Spark Miniature Magic: Greenhouse Kit For The Artsy Soul In Your Life!

Review: "This was a really fun project that forces you to take your time. Based on other reviews I purchased a turbo drying glue pen and a craft kit with tweezers and an exacto knife which I really couldn’t have done this without. You also need a millimeter ruler (I printed one out). It’s really important to measure everything carefully because they don’t give you much extra in terms of supplies." - saraj88

There's an amazing video on YT where a miniature builder named Hanabira did this, added/ changed some parts & created a base that looked like Animal Crossing yard. I bought this kit to build bc of them.

The large size of the paper included in this kit provides flexibility if you need to cut it down into various sizes, which I do since I want to make different print projects for my classes. It also consistently provides a good quality of print and a rich blue color. The sunprint website also has a lot of good educational materials and directions, beyond what is included in the kit." - AIto

The lovely design on the top is left uncolored so that you can fill in the color to personalize the flower press." - Amanda D

On-The-Go Artistry: Field Travel Set By Winsor & Newton For Watercolor Wonders!

Review: "Although Cotman is not Winsor & Newton’s artist paints, the quality of the paint is really good and I could not find any difference in quality from their artist paints. When you first insert the paint blocks into the pans, you will notice how they move out of the pan when you carry the set about. However, after my first painting session, the blocks stuck to the pans and this was not a problem anymore. The pans can be removed individually or as a set of 4." - JP

It also has some spots in the back to save business cards or credit cards and a little Ziploc folder to put other trinkets. It’s nice that it comes with multiple nibs and they were careful to wrap the ink in a small plastic Ziploc bag. I love the little ink holder where you put the pen in while you’re riding.

I love the clips for drying brushes downwards so the water doesn’t pool in the metal bit (can’t remember the correct word!) and the knobbles at the bottom, but it doesn’t hold much water. It’s an acrylic tube and the top and bottom slot onto it. No leaks, but I always carry it with my hand under the base!

This stylus is almost half the price of original apple pencil. And the pressure sensitivity really is the whole point of apple pencil. Or can this stylus do something special?
