2018 Holiday Sale!

November 5th thru December 31st, 2018

“I don’t have an artistic bone in my body.” For an artists’ supply store, we actually hear that sentiment a lot.  For this year’s holiday catalog, we’re showing that artistic bones are connected in a lot of different ways – the tools & spaces used for creating are as varied as the work that’s created – and that everybody’s got ‘em. From the professional studio of cover star, painter and Carleton College professor, Dan Bruggeman (www.grovelandgallery.com), to the creation station of three of our favorite makers, Wren, Kaj, & Freyja, the artists profiled throughout the catalog pages share the desire to express themselves creatively, but the form & facility of that expression is as uniquely different as they are. If you’re one of those that thinks you’re missing artistic bones, we hope these pictures will be inspirational.

-Darin Rinne,  co-owner

Limited Edition Schmincke Horadam Semiprecious Stones set only $36.00!

The timing is right for this special edition set of Schmincke “semi-precious” watercolors as these historical earth tones are best suited for outdoor and nature painting and are a fun addition to a springtime sketching session. Red Opalite, Green Porphyry, and Lapis Lazuli stones have been specially milled to create semi-opaque pigments.  These granulating colors have subtle tints and are incredibly lightfast. While not strong mixers, we have found that combining them in a wash with a tiny bit of modern pigment such as Pyrrole Red or Hansa Yellow has produced some great two-toned effects where the larger particles add great texture, even on smoother finish papers. As with any particularly heavy pigment, these stone-derived colors may settle in the tube somewhat. If this occurs, we recommend mixing the pigment back into the binder (stirring in the tube with a long pin or needle tool) before use. These are a limited edition only available in 5ml tubes and will not be added to the standard Schmincke color selection. (MSRP $73.65)

Limited Edition Schmincke Horadam Semiprecious Stones set only $36.00!

The timing is right for this special edition set of Schmincke “semi-precious” watercolors as these historical earth tones are best suited for outdoor and nature painting and are a fun addition to a springtime sketching session. Red Opalite, Green Porphyry, and Lapis Lazuli stones have been specially milled to create semi-opaque pigments.  These granulating colors have subtle tints and are incredibly lightfast. While not strong mixers, we have found that combining them in a wash with a tiny bit of modern pigment such as Pyrrole Red or Hansa Yellow has produced some great two-toned effects where the larger particles add great texture, even on smoother finish papers. As with any particularly heavy pigment, these stone-derived colors may settle in the tube somewhat. If this occurs, we recommend mixing the pigment back into the binder (stirring in the tube with a long pin or needle tool) before use. These are a limited edition only available in 5ml tubes and will not be added to the standard Schmincke color selection. (MSRP $73.65)
