Daler Rowney System 3 Heavy Body Acrylics

These Daler-Rowney System 3 Heavy Body Acrylics have been reformulated to offer more pigment and versatility than ever. The high pigment load used gives it excellent colour strength, permanence, light-fastness and opacity. They have a superior heavy body consistency offering a unique peak retention, ideal for impasto techniques and use with a palette knife (or card). It's an extremely versatile and manageable water-based acrylic, but also offers all the virtues of a heavy body consistency. These paints are fully intermixable which lends to limitless colour combining and blending possibilities. They are also suitable for interior and exterior use, making them the perfect medium for all mixed media art projects.

Pro Arte Series 60 PROLON

The Pro Arte Series 60 Prolon brush is a tinted nylon multi-media purpose brush with a round brush tip. This brush is comprised of durable and soft nylon hairs with a good colour-carrying capacity. Ideal for clean and crisp paint applications with acrylic and other thickly textured paints, as well mixed media projects. They are made from a high-quality synthetic hair with great colour retention and pointing qualities. They are very resilient with densely packed bristles which makes them great for use with high-viscosity paints such as oil, acrylic and heavy body acrylic.

Faber Castsell 9000 2B Pencil

The Faber Castell 9000 is a classic pencil, launched by Count Alexander von Faber-Castell in 1905. Each pencil features a graphite black lead, which is made from very finely ground graphite and clay. This combination ensures that the pencil performs a smooth application and is never scratchy. Its lead is fully bonded with the wood surround which makes it particularly break-resistant and it also has a water-based varnish which is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. This pencil is a top-quality instrument designed with your needs in mind, making it a firm favourite among artists and illustrators.

These artboards are perfect for all of your painting and mixed media needs. They are light weight and sturdy with a pre-primed surface ready for direct paint application. They are hard-wearing media surfaces, laminated with Optima mixed media paper, ideal for all of your artistic masterpieces.

Palette Knife Card

This palette knife card is great for creating various textural dimensions to your artwork. You can cut it, slice it, bend it and more to bring texture to the heavy body acrylics. It can also be used for mixing your colours before application, keeping your paints pure and your brushes clean.
