Wet Paint Holiday Sale!

November 7th thru December 31st, 2016

Do you have an appetite for creativity? A recipe for artistic success? The art of making art and making a meal often act as metaphor…both share common tools, techniques, and even attributes with each other. A learning curve for capability, familiarity through repetition, enough wiggle room for creative experiments, and a finale in sharing the fruits of one’s labor are hallmarks of both the successful kitchen and the successful studio. With this in mind, Kristina and Darin have had a great time cooking up this year’s holiday catalog, whose theme – if you haven’t guessed – is food.  You’ll find a dash of spicy new products, a heaping helping of favorites, some surprising pairings, and even some artists’ recipes and fun food facts…served thematically from appetizer to dessert. Bon appetit!

May your holidays be rich with family & friends, and great meals & great art…stir up that pot of creativity!

-Beth Bergman, owner of Wet Paint
