Thank you Misterart for your quality of paints. I ordered your DecorArt acrylic paints for my craft projects. I couldnt be happier. They did the job, and the price was affordable. When I 1st went to your site I thought ok I'll give them a try, what do I have to lose. I was amazed as to the care of your shipping and quality of product you sell. Looking forward to my next projects that include your products. Thank you again for a great experience. I am one happy customer :)

Styles & Periods
Byzantine Art

Byzantine Art arose from the expansion and regional dominance of the Byzantine Empire, and flourished further after the capital, Constantinople, was dedicated in the year 330, becoming the cultural center of the empire. Though the capital was initially appointed with treasures of ancient, classical art, the emerging style would prove more abstract and symbolic. The Age of Justinian ushered in an aggressive period of conquest for the empire, as well as major building and renovation projects in Constantinople and beyond. From Moscow to Turkey to Italy monuments were built, and decorated with religious and imperial iconography. In Ravenna, the Basilica of San Vitale remains as a jewel of the Justinian Empire. Its construction was not based upon the longitudinal axis of Early Christian basilicas, but instead, has an octagonal plan with a domed center. The interior space is complex, with rich mosaics of the Emperor Justinian and the Empress Theodora that decorate multiple chambers. A new standard of beauty was set in the rendering of the portraits of the royal court in these mosaics from the standard of the Early Christian figures. In Istanbul, the Hagia Sophia is the most important monument of the Byzantine era. The former mosque is a masterpiece of physics and geometry, and includes the architectural element of buttressing, an innovation at the time, allowing the building to soar to new heights, and to include a collection of windows which reflected the sun’s path in a show of lights.

Latest Product Reviews

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.

I have used these brushes for years , love them and I have sold many paintings using these brushes. So I think they are a great bargain!
- Nick in ST. Johnsbury Vt
I agree with the other 5-star reviews. Compact and sturdy. I use a waterbrush, not the included brush.
