"We chose to build our oil paint with this (Walnut) oil because its unique refractive index and non-yellowing nature produces color that is more naturally alive and brilliant. In addition walnut oil allows us to increase the amount of pigment in each color, resulting in extraordinary richness, color saturation, brilliance and tinting strength. "
Water Mixable Oil
"DUO has taken all the handling qualities and the buttery feel of Holbein Artist Oil Color and made it safer and easier to use. Duo eliminates the odor of solvents in the studio by allowing you to clean brushes, palette, and workspace with soap and water. Because of its versatility, the possibilities for special techniques and effects using Duo are limited only by one’s imagination."
"Containing 60% solids (instead of the usual 45% found in artists color), our acrylic emulsion allows us to increase pigment loads and eliminate artificial thickeners. The result is increased pigment loads for more intense color and enhanced working properties with the flow and delicacy normally found only in fine gouaches."
BeauxArts features M. Graham, Holbein and Winsor & Newton paints. Our shop is not limited to those brands, as we also carry Koi and a selection of Daniel Smith. We are able to order other brands that you know and trust.
We also have a treasure chest full of delightful tools to use by themselves or mix with other media such as:
Derwent Inktense Pencils
Derwent Inktense Pencils are water-soluble pencils that can be used dry or mixed with water. Once mixed with water the colors turn even more vibrant and no longer activate (once allowed to dry) if saturated with water again.
Derwent Graphitint Pencils
Water-soluble graphite pencils with a hint of color. If water is applied, the color jumps!
Derwent Watercolor Pencils
Traditional watercolor pencils, it will reactivate if water is repeatedly applied.
Lyra Water Solubable Graphite Crayon
Water-soluble Graphite crayons come in three harnesses/degrees of black, 2B, 6B & 9B. Activated by water. Once dry, an eraser can be used.
"The Virtue of our fine art gouache is pure color, crafted with high-performance lightfast pigments and no chalk or adulterants that degrade the appearance of the color when dry."
"Watercolors by M. Graham are created with exceptional amounts of pigment in a time-honored binding medium of pure gum arabic and natural blackberry honey."
"Water colour more than any other medium relies upon the variable characteristics of the pigments used. Our (Winsor & Newton) Professional Water Colours use only the purest pigments, and are known for their brilliance, permanence and strength of colour."
