Art Materials are our passion

Our Philosophy

In 2011 we started our company to do one simple thing - to provide a focused range of quality art materials for artists of all levels, at competitive prices. We select only the best products, some of which you won't find anywhere else, and are constantly looking for new products to add to our range. But before anything goes in our shop or on our website, we test it. If it doesn't meet our high standards we won't stock it, giving you confidence that the art materials you are buying are quality.

We've extended our range of Michael Harding Artist Oil colours!

Michael Harding Artist Oil colours are made with a commitment to create colours that are true and vibrant
as well as beautiful and durable. For that reason we have extended our range of colours.

Artist quality acrylic that works like traditional acrylics but allows you to reactivate the paint, even when dry.
Abstract Matt has a soft body consistency, ultra opaque finish, is suitable for a range of surfaces and has a velvety, matt appearance once dry.
A slow-drying acrylic paint with a slightly softer consistency than heavy body acrylic paints and has increased working time
artist quality acrylics that are particularly brilliant, pure, strong and have great depth thanks to a high concentration of pure pigments
