This review is written because I have found the BEST site for artist/crafters available on the web. I looked high and low for a source of gold leaf, BINGO! found what I needed and more, and the biggest bonus is that the customer service staff cannot be more helpful. The e-mail replies are speedy and they do what they say they will. Great job, it's like going to the neighborhood store, which is good since I live pretty much in the middle of nowhere!! THANKS THANKS THANKS.

Styles & Periods
Fauvism

Fauvism received its name from an incensed critic, who likened the brightly colored canvases to wild beasts. The style was the first avant-garde current in France in the 20th century. Henri Matisse and his colleagues, André Derain, Georges Rouault and Raoul Dufy, sought to realize the potential of color in a different sense than it had been used by the Impressionists. Brazen color was used in a decorative manner, yet space was molded and defined in paint. This was a radical departure from the method in which painters worked with the effects of light before the turn of the century; this change was both emotional and based on visual observation. Matisse and his contemporaries were influenced by the work of the Post-Impressionists Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin, whose work emphasized the intensity of color and featured geometrical shapes carved into the two-dimensional picture plane. The entire Fauvist movement was brief, only from about 1905 to 1907, but it had profound effects on 20th century movements, including German Expressionism.

I have tried many different mold "puttys" and this one is the best so far. It is easy to mix and holds little details really well. The set time is quick and no mess.

This is by far the best ink I have used for my comics! Consistency is perfect. Pigment has the tendency to settle at the bottom of the bottle but I just stir it with a brush and it dissolves quickly. I buy this product in batches,because I am terrified that it will be discontinued. Joe Kubert's school recommended this ink.

Lanaquarelle cold press is a beautiful paper for watercolor and gouache. It does not hold up to drafting tape as a masking method, but can take masking fluids. The paint continues to slowly and evenly disperse across a wet surface, applied even after the wet sheen subsides, so be careful not to over-paint during wet on wet or dispersion will go too far. It is a great paper for very surprising subtle and delicate effects, as well as bold and saturated washes, which apply easily and evenly. I am glad I tried this paper and I would definitely use it again and again.
