I am thoroughly pleased with my recent order! The oil paint sticks are fabulous and fun to work with. The double ended markers are great as well. The order was received in a timely manner.

Feminist Art

The Feminist Art Movement is a continuing effort among feminists around the world to create art that conveys the female condition. In the 1960s, as second-wave feminism generated momentum in the United States, art was one of many cultural elements that women sought to influence. The process was two-fold and entailed creating public awareness of women who had impacted art throughout history, as well as exploring the role of women in the world of modern art. The Feminist Art movement made strides in the early 1970s, as supporters of the cause began to take organized action against institutional prejudice. The first ever feminist art program was established in 1970 at California State University, Fresno. The program was headed by Judy Chicago, an intrepid contributor to feminist art, and empowered female artists to collaborate and experiment. In 1971, the Ad Hoc Women Artists' Committee took aim at the exclusion of women artists by the Whitney Museum. Feminist art often seeks to present images related to the female body, female roles and labor, and sexuality. Artists creating feminist art challenge these components of gender in their traditional conceptions. Women and men, including Judy Chicago, Yasumasa Morimura, Faith Ringgold and Barbara Kruger have contributed to the movement with presentations of performance art, photography, painting, sculpture, installation art and traditional arts. All speak within the rhetoric of different media, but all address aspects of being a woman.

This is the only paint I use for my paintings, and has been for about 20 years. I buy the 500ml size. Great buy, easy use, long-lasting size. Misterart has the best selection. Thank-you!

I love your soy paints for my crafts. Sadly this product is no longer available at Joanne's or any other craft stores I visit. This paint is true in color, dries quickly, and if you need to cover up a mistake or start over, this paint covers up better than any other brand I have used. Especially your white onion and mushroom are a life saver for all projects. I do not understand why this product is not more popular. I brag about it all the time, especially to the craft stores. If you are a true crafter your paint, is important. Your soy paints are pure quality for all my project, and I am sad to not see them on the shelves anymore! Big Mistake; if only they had tried just one bottle of this wonderful product. That was how I learned how good they were by giving them a try.

I use welbond glue on my mosaics, glass to glass, and when I put water on it after it has been set and is clear, I have found that it will turn white again and come loose. I love the glue but found this not something I want to use for project that get wet like being outside etc. I found that a Silicone glue that is waterproof worked better for my projects.
