Thank you for your amazing service. I placed this order Tuesday evening and received it today! Didn't think it was possible to order and ship something that fast without paying a premium shipping charge. I will certainly use you again when I need art supplies.

Glossary

Word of the Day!

figurative art


Art that depicts recognizable forms or figures from life. Figurative art is also called representational art.


Example: Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, 1942

ukiyo-e

Japanese for 'pictures of the floating world'. Ukiyo-e were popular in the seventeenth to nineteenth-centuries, and depicted kabuki actors, landscapes, and folk tales.

Example: Kitagawa Utamaro's Five Kinds of Ink from the Northern Provinces, early 1790's

ultramarine

Blue pigment originally made from ground lapis lazuli. French ultramarine is an artificial substitute.

undercut

Carving to create an overhang; a recess or awkward angle in the surface or form of a three-dimensional object which would prevent easy removal of a cast from a mold. Molds should be designed to eliminate this problem. Ways to cast objects with overhangs include using piece molds and waste molds.

underdrawing

Drawing preliminary to other work, and incorporated into it, thus deprived of independent artistic value. An example is the underdrawing in fresco and panel painting, such as sinopia and abbozzo.

underpainting

The layer or layers of color on a painting surface applied before the overpainting, or final coat. There are many types of underpainting. One type is an all-over tinting of a white ground. Another is a blocked out image in diluted oil colors that serves as a guide for the painter while developing the composition and color effects.

I love these pencils, They are perfect for drawing and crosswords. I won't use anything else, and everyone keeps taking my pencils.
- Kathy K. in New Cumberland, PA
These pencils are awesome! I ordered these with a few other small sets for a comparison, as I'm a beginner at pencils. I ordered a prismacolor 12 set, a crayola 24 set and this set. This set has the brightest colors, very easy to 'lay down color', the color doesn't come off on your hand (Hey, I thought it would.. never know!) I would definitely recommend these.
- Melanie in Pittston, PA
l love the color and ease of firing this clay. This fires to a clean white. Predictable, and easy to use.
