    Sink down into the Ink!

    Featured MediumJACQUARD PINATA ALCOHOL INKS 0.5OZ (Sunbright Yellow, Chili Pepper, Baja Blue)Beautiful, color-saturated, acid-free, transparent inks. They have an alcohol base which makes them indelible and moisture-resistant when dry, and allows you to use them on almost any surface as long as it’s clean and oil free. Highly versatile, Piñata can be used in a variety of applications, including rubber stamping, fine art, fiber art and scrapbooking. It can also be used in calligraphy, faux finishing techniques, airbrush applications, wood and leather staining and more.
    Featured Medium ExtenderPINATA CLARO EXTENDER 1OZMixing this solution with Jacquard Piñata Colors slows drying time and increases transparency without diluting color strength. When dropped or brushed on top of dry Piñata colors, Claro Extender creates marble-like textures and dries to a slightly less shiny finish — just like real stone!
    Featured SolutionPINATA CLEAN UP SOLUTION 1OZFormulated especially for use with Jacquard Piñata Colors, this solution contains moisturizers that keep brushes and sponges soft and pliable. First use regular rubbing alcohol to clean off most of the color, then follow with Clean-Up Solution for the final rinse.
    Featured BlenderART ALTERNATIVES ILLUSTRATION BLENDER MARKERArt Alternatives Illustration Markers combine vibrant, easy flowing alcohol-based inks with dual nibs, making them ideal for coloring on canvas, paper, art boards and many other surfaces. These markers are quick drying, non smearing and feature both a brush and chisel nib for easy filling and precision coloring.
    Featured BrushPRINCETON SERIES 6500 ASPEN BRUSHES FILBERT SIZE 2Equally well-suited for plein air and studio settings, Princeton Aspen brushes combine performance, practicality, and style. Unlike natural bristle, however, the brush hairs stay together regardless of the painting surface or the degree of pressure applied. Acrylics, oils, and water-soluble oils release and glide evenly off these brush hairs. Every Aspen brush has an elegantly polished black handle made from reforested wood, and a matte black ferrule that eliminates light reflection when painting on site.
    Featured ToolSAKURA MICROPERM PEN BLACK 0.45MMPermanent micro-point ink pens can achieve ultra fine lines. They will write on most surfaces, are quick drying, waterproof and resistant to cleaners. For writing in micro-spaces or on unusual and challenging surfaces, the Microperm meets the challenge, making precise, long-lasting marks on glass, plastic, wood, metal, glossy sheets, cellophane, paper, CDs, photographs and X-ray film — even circuit boards, test tubes, and diamonds!
    Featured CanvasYUPO TRANSLUCENT WATERCOLOR PAPER PAD 5”X7”This translucent synthetic paper made of 100% polypropylene offers a unique alternative to traditional art papers. The translucent sheets allow for special layered effects and tracing. Waterproof and stain-resistant, it is exceptionally strong, durable and will not buckle or tear. As a watercolor paper, it has the advantage of being non-absorbent so colors lie on top of its surface producing brilliant, vibrant effects. Yupo requires no soaking, stretching, or taping flat. Best of all, it allows you to wipe off unwanted sections of your painting and start again with a fresh surface.
