Glossary

Word of the Day!

alabaster


A white or yellowish white translucent stone, which is a type of gypsum found in England and Italy. Its softness makes it easy to carve, but also easily broken, soiled, and weathered. The "alabaster" of ancient Egypt and Rome is actually a much harder stone-- onyx-marble, which is a calcium carbonate, whereas ordinary gypsum is a calcium sulfate.


Example: Sculptor Anish Kapoor's rough forms often are made of alabaster.

xylography

A printing technique that involves carving text in relief upon a wooden block. When inked, the impression is transferred to paper. The oldest known printed works were produced by this method in Japan and China during the 8th and 9th centuries. This method of wood-block printing appeared in Europe in the 14th century and eventually inspired Johannes Gutenberg to create type pieces out of metal.

Latest Product Reviews

As a cartoonist, I've found only the 100 nib to be one that acts like a brush in that it gives me the thick and thin line that I desire, and a very thin line as well. It handles well and is very flexible.

I love these crayons; they are great for mirror or window art, and blend very well together.

Could be re-stocked faster, when out of stock it takes months to become available again.
