I am a new customer to MisterArt.com and would like to take a moment to say thank you for my wonderful shopping experience. I was so surprised to finally find a place to get my art supplies at reasonable prices online! I have placed two orders thus far, and both have arrived quickly, safely, well-packaged, and the products themselves were fantastic.

Styles & Periods
Minimalism

Minimalism developed out of a reaction to modernism and its emphasis on the painting. Instead, by reducing their field of vocabulary to only the most essential components, minimal artists, quite often sculptors, reintroduced the importance of shape. The illusion inherent in Old Masters’ works and the emotional expression of paintings in the 1950s was discarded by the minimalists, in favor of the supremacy and timelessness of objects in their environments. The minimalist movement stems from several moments in the history of art. The abstract geometry of Kazimir Malevich, the machine-like forms of Constantine Brancusi, and the Spatialism of Lucio Fontana all contributed to artists working within minimalist ideals. Some leaders include sculptors Carl Andre, Tony Smith, Donald Judd, and painters Frank Stella and Ellsworth Kelly. In traditional painting, the presence of a human hand and a personal vision are often evident. In Minimalism, modules of color, shape or materials are used to build the artwork, resulting in a finished product that is free from overt narrative.

Tulip does it again with a new face painting kit. While I can't get my favourite paints (Palmer) in the supplies I need, we, The Balloonatics will test this new kit and see how kid friendly it will be. We will test toxicity, staining, melding of colours, creating special effects, and just how many faces we can paint with one kit. Tulip is wonderful in its other many many products and I highly recommend them. We will post our findings as soon as we test them out.

I have used Delta paints for years. I do craft shows all year long, besides having a shop in a flea market. My best sellers are glass ornaments that I paint using Permenamel and also the Accent liners for personalization. It is the only paint I use. Love the fact that they air dry. I also use the Delta acrylic and Ceramicoat for other painting projects ie. cast iron, saws, milk cans and many others. What can I say, I am a fan of Delta.
