Blick Art supplies List $29.19 sale $23.53 (out of stock on line until 3/26)
Liquitex Basics were developed for students and artists who required dependable quality at an economical price. Each color is uniquely formulated to bring out the maximum brilliance and clarity of the individual pigment. These are heavy-body acrylics with a buttery consistency for easy blending. Their heavy viscosity allows for thick, oil-like painting, retaining peaks and brush marks. They dry to a satin-matte finish, eliminating surface glare. Basics can be used for a variety of techniques from watercolor, airbrush, and printmaking, to thick applications that simulate oil paint. When dry, these acrylic paints are permanent, water-resistant, and flexible.

*Canvas Panels Gesso boards – pack of 24
07015-1023 Economy Canvas Panels, Pkg of 24 9″ × 12″ 1/8″ List $22.49 $17.99
The perfect marriage of economy and quality! Extraordinarily sturdy to resist warping, these canvas panels are an incredible value. They are crafted to our exacting standards from 5 oz 100% cotton canvas that is double primed and adhered with an acid-free adhesive. Their acid-free core is made from a cellulose by-product that is an ecologically renewable resource. Each panel is approximately 1/8″ thick and is individually wrapped.
Gesso treated canvas sheets
07400-1043 Studio Canvas Pad, 10 Sheets 9″ × 12″ List $9.03 $4.66
Canvas Pads contain actual sheets of cotton canvas that have been primed and are ready to accept paint. Oils and acrylics work well on this surface. Once the painting is completed, it can be framed or stretched for display. This is a good option for artists with little studio space or for quick sketches and studies.
Paper for acrylic paint
09800-1023 Acrylic Pad 9″ × 12″ 246 lb (400 gsm) List $10.99 $6.04
This heavyweight, versatile Strathmore acid-free paper was made with the acrylic artist in mind, but it is also well suited for a variety of other painting, drawing, pastel or charcoal applications where a heavy paper with a toothy surface is desirable. The paper has a cream-colored linen finish. 246 lb (400 gsm). New flipover covers make it easy to work in the pad. Sheets stay in the pad yet tear out cleanly. 10 sheets per pad.
Acrylic Painting Papers are an inexpensive solution for acrylic painting. Acrylic paper should be heavy weight to prevent warping, have a textured surface to assure adhesion, and have sizing to prevent absorption. The medium must adhere to the surface, but not be absorbed into the substrate. Use it for practice works, instruction, studies, and sketches. If longevity must be measured in generations, and not years, stretched canvas or hardboard panels would be more stable options. http://www.dickblick.com/items/09800-1023/
