Grey Matters Disposable Paper Palette
The Jack Richeson Grey Matters Paper Palette offers a unique, disposable solution to help artists working on a toned surface be able to see how the colors will appear on neutral surfaces before applying them to the painting. It is ideal for plein air painting as it prevents glare from misjudging colors. The paper is suitable for oils, casein, acrylics and alkyds, and each pad includes a color mixing reference guide inside the front cover.
The Grey Matters Palette is acid free palette paper toned in a neutral grey. Available in 6"x9", 9"x12" or 12"x16" pads.
BEST Stretcher Bars
Quality stretcher bars are not just another piece of wood. Every Best bar is selected from the finest raw material. The bars must be free of knots and completely straight. All the bars are designed so that the canvas is always a full 1⁄2" from the stretcher bar to insure that there will be no “ghost” impressions on the canvas. The rounded back edge reduces surface friction and allows for a smoother, tighter draw of the fabric for a snug, more even painting surface. Best stretcher bars are designed by artists and made from kiln-dried pine. They are the finest made today. And they are made in the U.S. Bring in a sample of the stretcher bars you are currently using and compare. The quality is readily apparent.
We carry most sizes of the light duty and heavy duty bars and a limited selection of heavy duty cross braces. We can provide custom orders within a week.
We carry 3/16" acid-free foamcore in 32"x40" sheets of white/white and black/black. Also 3/16" white/white in 4'x8' sheets. And 1/2" black/black in 30"x40" sheets.
Remo-Two Removable Double-Sided Foam Tape
Double adhesive foam tape with removable adhesive on two sides. Removes cleanly from most non-delaminating surfaces even after extended periods of time. Holding Power: 1/2 lb per 1 sq. in. of tape. We found this when we were looking for something to stick our collector's postcards to the wall- after spending a fortune on a variety of materials to achieve it with bad results. Some materials stuck for a short time, others didn't stick at all and others couldn't hold the weight of a postcard, while yet others damaged both the card and the wall. A local college professor saw it being used in a museum upstate and asked if we could carry it. What's so amazing about this stuff is that it has a high holding power yet doesn't damaged painted walls. We've moved our postcards several times and the postcards themselves are never damaged and the tape comes right off them! We sell this amazing stuff in bags of 100- 1" squares, 1/8" thick.
