I have purchased this same item (Prismacolor Pencil Set) from art supply stores for the past several years and never have I found the price as low as MisterArt.com.

Styles & Periods
Baroque

The Baroque period was named perhaps for the Portuguese word barroom, meaning an imperfect or rough pearl. The Catholic Church was being challenged by the ideas of Martin Luther, and launched a campaign to educate the congregations. Many artists completed large-scale commissions to make work that would inspire faith. Ceilings in churches and palaces were often the surface for these devotional images, and artists painted complex, but balanced, compositions. Caravaggio is credited as the master of Baroque painting. He depicted his subjects in extreme naturalism, showing all their flaws, and bathed the figures in an extreme light that emphasized a sensuous contrast between light and shadow. In Rome, Gianlorenzo Bernini sculpted grand images with unprecedented virtuosity. Integrating sculpture, design and architecture in his works, he transformed the many buildings in Rome into environments of extreme devotion, and is sometimes crowned as the leader of the Italian Baroque. In Flanders, modern day Belgium, the painter and diplomat Peter Paul Rubens developed a Baroque canon of beauty, which was based upon his full-figured beauties. Rubens completed the transformation of integrating the art of Italy and the North that Dürer began, and developed uniquely Baroque pictures of heightened devotion and drama.

In my opinion, these are the BEST detail brushes out there, and I've tried half a dozen other brands. I've even bought high end Kolinsky sable minis, but they can't get the detail that these can. Mister Art has the best prices on these brushes by far.

I started using PREMO polymer clay before it was called PREMO; I use it in all of my projects. I have sold and shipped my work all over the USA ; as well as to France, Japan , and Hong Kong. My collectors know that if there is ever a problem, I will fix it; I've never had a problem. I have a very good friend who is a professional Chemist. He made plasticizer for me years ago, and I sometimes use it if the clay is too hard.

Love the copper and will be buying the others!I have been wanting copper post cap solar lights and they are just too pricey, I found a 2 pack of inexpensive solar lights, they were brown and we all know what happens to that plastic after baking in the Sun, then it occurred to me that I had the copper and I figured I'd try it on the lights, it covered beautifully in 2 coats. I wasn't sure if I had to seal them until now, but I used Krylon Maxx Clear Satin Spray Paint on them,and to my surprise, the spray instantly turned the copper a beautiful pinkish patina that happens naturally on copper. I will be doing this on my new deck lights before they are mounted, it is really beautiful!
