Paint

There are a variety of paints and coatings for the Tole, Fine Art, and Decorative Artist. The most widely used paints are bottle acrylics from manufacturers such as Delta, DecoArt and Plaid. These bottle acrylics come in thousands of pre-mixed colors. They unfortunately do not mix reliably, resulting in muddy color, as they are already a mixture of various pigments. Most popular paint lines offer pure pigment colors for those who wish to mix their own. Jo Sonja, Liquitex, and DecoArt Traditions acrylics are a few brands we carry that are made for painters who want to mix their own colors. All of the above acrylics dry to a flat matte finish within minutes allowing you to complete a work quickly. For those painters that desire more lustre and depth, some Tole and Decorative painters use Artists Oil Paints. Oils are very popular with wildlife artists as they do a better job capturing the depth of fur and the gleam of an eye. One of the drawbacks to oils is that they take days or weeks to dry to the touch.

We stock the entire watercolor paint line by Winsor and Newton and carry most DaVinci watercolors.
