Michael Harding Oil Paint 40ml

FINEST QUALITY OIL PAINT

Michael Harding Oil Colours are regarded among the finest oil paints available to artists today. The colours are completely free of fillers and utilise top-quality pigments.

First manufactured in 1982, Michael Harding Artists’ Oil Colours are popular with some of the world’s finest artists, including David Hockney, Chris Ofili, and the late Howard Hodgkin.

My paints are made by hand, using techniques which date back to the days of the Old Masters. There is a very simple reason for this painstaking process. As an artist and painter I wanted to create colours that were true and vibrant, and paint which was beautiful and durable.

The greater the pigment content of a paint the greater the resistance it has to fading. Nearly all manufacturers use various fillers to extend the volume of the oil paint. It may increase profits but it compromises on quality. I totally refuse to do this. Why make something exceptional and then dilute it?

I will not claim that my paints will turn you into a great painter, but I can promise they will have a profound effect on your work. Your colours will be stronger and richer, and you will find the texture of the paint incomparable. You will love working with them.

Try them. You will be amazed

Sennelier Ink Brush Pen

These Brush Pens have real synthetic fibre brush tips! The innovation of the Sennelier Ink Brush Pens is to be equipped with a real brush tip made of real fibers. Thanks to these real fibres, the application of the colour is more fluid, constant and linear, taking advantage of the internal capillarity of the brush to facilitate the dispersion of the colour. In the same gesture, the artist can create extremely fine and very wide lines (up to 10mm) with a continuous flow of ink, by simply varying the pressure of the tip on the paper.

Pigment based and exclusive to Sennelier, it is environmentally friendly, which explains why there is no safety marking on the label. 24 of the 36 colours are from Sennelier’s “La Petite Aquarelle” range. This correspondence allows watercolourists and illustrators to harmoniously complete the details and highlights of their works in watercolour.

BLOCKX Extra-Fine Oil Paint

Established in 1865 and the favourite paint of Salvador Dali. Blockx Paints are highly pigmented, pure, rich colours all with an exceptional degree of lightfastness.

The BLOCKX extra-fine oil paint line consists of 105 vibrant shades, all with an exceptional degree of lightfastness (rated 7/8 on the international BWS scale).
BLOCKX extra-fine oils are, for the most part, made from pure mono-pigment, without the addition of fillers and additives.
Through a unique traditional manufacturing method of grinding on porphyry stone, mixed with traditional binders, BLOCKX oils with smooth textures are highly concentrated in color.

Founded in 1865 in Belgium by Jacques Blockx I, today the brand BLOCKX is recognised by artists from around the world for the quality of its oil-based colours. At the time, the founder’s Belgian artist friends were despairing at the scarcity of the beautiful traditional colours made in artists’ studios, which had been replaced by industrial methods. Jacques Blockx I, a chemist passionate about colours and pigments, therefore decided to make some for them, at a small laboratory located on his property.
«The goal I have strived to achieve is finding a formula that will give the oil-based colours the required qualities of resistance, brilliance and beauty.» J.B

This professional-quality colour range is made from the purest pigments and purest quality gum arabic for brilliant and constant colours.

Sennelier Extra-Fine Artist’s Oil Paint 40ml

Sennelier was the supplier to Paul Cézanne in Aix-en-Provence.

Cezanne used 18 Sennelier fine oil colours, and they are still available today as part of the current extra-fine oil range.

Since it was founded in 1887, some of the greatest names in the history of art have placed their trust in the unique quality of Sennelier colours. This extraordinary group of clients includes Paul Gauguin, Alfred Sisley, and even Vincent Van Gogh, who would ask his brother Théo to go to Sennelier to buy his colours for him. The impressionist and precursor to modern art Paul Cézanne was another.

Dense, yet buttery, Sennelier oils are highly pigmented and firmer. The reformulated homogeneous consistency is better suited to the diversity of modern techniques and pictorial sensitivities. The slightly heavier body retains its unique creaminess, while offering greater versatility.
Sennelier’s carefully selected pigments are ground longer, to provide the finest, most vivid colouration possible. Sennelier strives to provide the purest, most concentrated stable pigments. With improved lightfastness, the colour intensity will endure for generations.
Safflower oil, a binder with balanced drying power, provides the creamy texture that dries with an attractive satin finish in a uniform manner over the entire range. Unlike linseed oil, safflower oil is non-yellowing.
Also available in 200ml tubes.

Paul Cézanne used the following 18 oil paints:

116 – white
208 – Raw Sienna
211 – Burnt Sienna
213 – Green earth

Sennelier Rive Gauche Oils

From its earliest days, Paris has been Sennelier’s source of inspiration and that is what makes it such a Parisian brand.

Dries twice as fast : Whilst retaining the key characteristics of oil painting, Rive Gauche fine oils dry twice as fast as classic oils. The outcome of this is a shortened drying time that does not restrict an artist’s possibilities of working with fresh paint.

Oils that yellow two times less : Safflower oil is used to make the 60 colours. It is characterised by its low level of yellowing (50% less than linseed oil) and its excellent compatibility with pigments.

High-performance cadmium substitutes : Rive Gauche fine oils use new pigments, which are high-performance cadmium substitutes that offer opaqueness and luminosity properties that are almost equivalent to real cadmium-based oils.

A rich, balanced palette of colours : 60 colours in 40ml tubes – 56 colours in 200ml tubes 52 opaque colours | 6 semi-opaque colours | 2 transparent colours | 4 iridescent colours.

With Rive Gauche, Sennelier has placed the colours of Paris into tubes so that artists from all over the world can experience the pleasure of using them.

Sennelier Extra-Fine Artist Oil Sticks

The Oil Stick is a composition of oil paint. A proportion of the oil is substituted with a neutral mineral wax, resulting in the stick appearance.

These colours are of perfect quality: pure pigments are ground into vegetable oils (siccatives), selected for their low degree of yellowing with time. The choice and high concentration of pigments enables excellent light resistance to be achieved. These colours are applied discreetly to conventional oil painting supports (oil-proof or universal) and demand quality background preparation.

Supports: canvas, canvas boards, laminated panels, paper.
Solid oil paint should be applied in a relatively thin film (no more than 1mm). Layers can be overlapped, in the same manner as paste oil paint, and can, if necessary, be thinned with petroleum or turpentine. Before use, the surface film should be removed. This latter will re-form after a few days of non-use. Paint applied dries within 2 to 5 days depending on layer thickness and atmospheric conditions. A clear medium is available allowing transparency and glazing effects
to be achieved.

Solid artists’ quality colours are available in opaque or transparent shades, depending on the shades of the pigments used. The product may be stored for extended periods of time and requires no special attention, apart from avoiding heat sources that may damage it.

Once dry, the paint may be varnished like conventional oil paint, after a minimum drying period of 6 months, using an oil paint finishing varnish.

Langridge Odourless Solvent

Untitled-3Langridge Low Toxic Solvent is supplied as a low toxicity alternative to traditional artists’ solvents, reducing exposure to the more harmful compounds associated with turpentine, etc.

Associated issues with prolonged contact with traditional artists’ solvents such as dermatitis, skin and respiratory organ irritation, headaches, etc. can be dramatically reduced or removed by using Langridge Low Toxic Solvent.

Because its’ Permisable Exposure Level (PEL) is higher than other solvents the artists exposure will not be as harmful in comparison to traditional solvents. Langridge still recommends the use of good studio ventilation, a minimum of two open windows, preferably a properly installed exhaust system.

It can be used as a diluent when used in small quantities with oil colours. Extreme care should be taken, however, in diluting purely with Low Toxic Solvent as its over-use can easily underbind paint and lead to a dull, dry lifeless film with potential for dusting or flaking off. Artists wishing to create very fluid working qualities should refer to painting mediums constructed for that purpose.

Available in 100ml, 500ml, 1 Litre, 4 Litre

Lefranc & Bourgeois Quick Drying Petroleum

Untitled-6Highly volatile, gives a matt finish, also called White Spirit.
This solvent is purely of mineral origin. Its principal quality is that it evaporates completely, leaving no trace.

Available in 75ml, 250ml, 500ml and 1liter bottles

Lefranc & Bourgeois Rectified Turpentine

Untitled-7Turpentine is  obtained by distilling the gum from pine trees. It is then rectified, which makes it colourless and increases its fluiditiy. It is mainly used for thinning oil colours, therby making them easier to use for the basic sketch by fluidifying them without altering their hue.

Less volatile than Quick drying petroleum, it gives less of a matt appearence to the work.

Available in 75ml, 250ml, 500ml and 1liter bottles

Lefranc & Bourgeois Oil of Spike Lavender

Untitled-5Lavender oil comes from the distillation of lavender. Thanks to its slow volatility, it gives body the colours as well as a certain amount of bite, which improves adhesion to the lower layers.

Available in 75ml and 250ml bottles

Art Spectrum Odorless Solvent

art-spectrum-logo_81Ideal for artists who are sensetive to the odor of turpentine. Used for the cleaning of brushes and as a replacement when making up mediums.

Keep away from naked flame and heat. Use in a well ventilated area.

Available in 500ml and 1 litre.

Art Spectrum Pure Gum Turpentine

art-spectrum-logo_81Double distilled for artist’s use. Use in the preparation of painting mediums and for cleaning equipment.

Do not use neat as a diluent for oil paint. Use in a well ventilated area.

Available in 500ml and 1 litre.

Langridge Refined Linseed Oil

Untitled-29Linseed is the most widely used oil because when dry it forms the toughest, most resilient paint films.

Used in small quantities, it adds a soft, slippery quality when added to oil colours. The paint film will stay open and is easily moved or reworked for up to 24 hours.

Because linseed oils yellow or darken with time, some more dramatically than others, it is recommended that the use of linseed oil should be kept to a minimum as a medium to aid fluidity or transparency.

Further information on the use of refined linseed oil is available here.

Available in 100ml, 500ml and 1 litre.

Langridge Cold Pressed Linseed Oil

Untitled-28Cold Pressed Linseed Oil has greater wetting power than refined linseed oils and is often recommended for hand milling of oil  paints. When used to mill oil colours or even when mixed with prepared oil colours produces a pronounced stroke to the brushmark, so that strokes of  different directions and application show a marked ‘suede’ effect.

Used even in small quantities, it adds a loose, slippery quality when added to oil colours. The paint film will stay open and is easily moved or reworked for up to 24 hours. Cold Pressed Linseed Oil creates a flexible paint film longer than any other artist’s drying oil.

Further information on the use of Cold Pressed Linseed Oil can be found here.

Available in 100ml, 500ml and 1 litre.

Langridge Stand Oil

Untitled-27Stand Oil is a virtually non-yellowing drying oil. Thick and honey-like, it cannot be used without the addition of Distilled Gum Turpentine or equivalent solvent. It has pronounced levelling qualities and produces an enamel-like effect when mixed with oil paints.

Stand Oil based mediums will set-up to a tack that grabs any succeeding brush strokes. The wet, but tacky paint surface can be readily painted into without moving freshly applied paint. Excellent for controlled paint manipulation.

For further information on the use of Stand Oil is available here.

Available in 100ml, 500ml and 1 litre.

Lefranc & Bourgeois Clarified Linseed Oil

Untitled-31Used to reduce the consistency and to speed up the drying time of oil colours. Also improves gloss and transparency.

Available in 75ml and 250ml.

Lamy Tipo Rollerball Pen

339_tipo_natur_TR_engWith its rollerball refill, the LAMY tipo writes just as fluently and accurately as one would expect of any Lamy pen. And it is ready for use instantly. This is because instead of a cap, it has an integrated clip-push mechanism which makes for extremely swift selection. When the clip is pressed to extend the rollerball tip, the clip itself retracts into a slot in the shaft, meaning that it can no longer be used to clip the pen onto a (jacket) pocket. When the top of the clip is pressed, however, the rollerball tip disappears inside the body and the clip returns to its original position. The LAMY tipo can once again be clipped onto a (jacket) pocket without any risk of stains.

Available in Aluminium, Graphite, Blue, Red, Pink, Orange and White.

Lamy Noto Ballpoint Pen

283_KS_01_engLAMY Noto. Easy writing. Ballpoint pen in the new, functional design. With triangular
body and impressive clip solution. With LAMY giant refill M 16 black M.

Sennelier Oil Pastels

The Sennelier oil pastel is a product that makes use of the components used in all Sennelier colours: top quality pigments, an extremely pure synthetic binding medium and mineral wax. The pigments are ground with an inert, non-siccative binding medium that does not oxidise and that has no effect upon either film stability or surface. This base is then mixed with wax (neutral pH). The balance of this mix provides Sennelier oil pastels with a unique unctuousness and a creamy texture that allows for a great deal of freedom in pictorial expression.

The Sennelier oil pastels possess an extraordinarily high pigment content, thus providing them with a high colouring and covering potential, excellent brightness and a high degree of light stability (with the exception of metallic and fluorescent shades).

The remarkable properties of these components, along with their precise dosage, provide Sennelier oil pastels with unique properties, making the brand a world-recognised reference.

Daler-Rowney FW Pearlescent Inks 29.5ml

dr pearl inkFW Pearlescent Inks are a unique range of 22 water-based acrylic colours producing a shimmering pearl effect.

Pigments are large in particle size so will not go through fine line nozzles for airbrushes, nor will they be suitable for technical pens or fountain pens. The best means of applying pearlescent colours is by using a dipper pen, ruling pen or brush.

These acrylic-based inks are water-soluble when wet, but dry to a water-resistant film on most surfaces. All colours are very to extremely lightfast.

This breakthrough in colour technology offers almost limitless creative potential in areas not normally associated with inks and includes applications to wood and leather (and to a limited degree, glass and ceramics) as well as to paper and board. All colours are intermixable. They are permanent and translucent, but work best if put down freely rather than applying successive layers of colours. The shimmering pearl effect created by these colours is startling, and there are many interesting and exciting ways of using FW Pearlescent Inks.

Lefranc & Bourgeois Charbonnel Hard Black Ball Ground

a20791713c15c52a085ce3_mContains: judea bitumen, dammar resin, wax.

Dry extract: 100%
Finish: opaque matt
Hardness: hard, not quite as hard as Charbonnel hard black ball ground.
Consistency: paste
Characteristics: The matt black finish obtained makes etching work very clear.
How To Use: Wrapped in a piece of taffeta which serves as a filter, the ball is rubbed on the pre-heated metal plate. Dab on the ground to obtain an even surface before smoking.
Plate Cleaning: Before applying these grounds, it is imperative that all grease be removed from the plate. To do this, thin some Marly white with a small quantity of water and rub the plate with a soft cloth or a piece of cotton. Rinse under flowing water. Pour a soured solution of vinegar and salt on the plate. Rinse once again. Dry rapidly. Avoid putting fingers on the plate whilst carrying out these operations.
Hard Grounds: Once the ground is applied and dry, the picture is etched with a hard point in order to expose the metal beneath the ground. The plate is then placed in a bath of acid to erode the exposed metal. Once the required bite depth has been attained, the plate should be taken out of the acid bath solution and dried and the ground removed with the appropriate thinner.

Lefranc & Bourgeois Charbonnel Soft Black Ball Ground

a20791713c15c52a085ce3_mContains: judea bitumen, pitch resin, tallow, beeswax.
Dry extract: 52%
Finish: satin opaque
Hardness: supple
Consistency: paste
Characteristics: Soft lines and textural effects.
How To Use: A painting dabber is recommended for application. It is applied hot.
Plate Cleaning: Before applying these grounds, it is imperative that all grease be removed from the plate. To do this, thin some Marly white with a small quantity of water and rub the plate with a soft cloth or a piece of cotton. Rinse under flowing water. Pour a soured solution of vinegar and salt on the plate. Rinse once again. Dry rapidly. Avoid putting fingers on the plate whilst carrying out these operations.
Soft Grounds: Soft grounds protect the plate. They are non-drying grounds, applied with a painting dabber or roller. Textures and materials pressed into their non-drying surface will lift off, leaving the metal bared, ready for the bite of the acid. The plate must be heated before application. The “Pencil Method” consists of drawing with a hard point on “laid” paper applied over the soft ground. The paper sticks to the drawn parts. After the bite of the acid, a pencil stroke effect is obtained.

Conte a Paris Carres Crayon

conte carresInvented in France in 1795 by Nicolas-Jacques Conté especially for drawing and sketching, Conté Crayons are made from a blend of natural pigments, kaolin clay, and graphite. The Conté crayon has been used by many of the world’s greatest artists, including Picasso, Delacroix, and Degas.

The rich, vivid colors of Conté Crayons mix together nicely, and a range of effects can be consistently produced. They are well suited for use on newsprint, bristol, toned paper or heavily grained surfaces. Their rich opacity makes them ideal for work on darker papers and their quality ensures the longevity of drawings. Conté crayons are waxier and much firmer than soft pastels, so they produce little dust and are easy to control.

Sharpen Conté Crayons to a chisel tip with a sanding pad for detailed work or drag them flat on their sides for various shading techniques on large areas. The unique shape allows the sticks to be broken for easier use.

 

Sticks are 2½” long × ¼” square (63 mm × 6 mm).
