Royal & Langnickel Canvas Paper Artist Pads
Royal & Langnickel Canvas Paper Artist Pads
Price: 4.04

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality paper, 24 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This paper is very good quality and ideal for acrylic painting (I don't use oil paints so can't comment on how good it is for that). The only reason I have not given it 5 stars is that the pad is glued at the top and the sheets do not come away from the glue very easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Gripper Pads, 22 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I first received these I was unsure whether they would open jars as the fibers have quite large holes. However, they work perfectly for jars and I also use them for opening my watercolour and acrylic paint tubes. They are a good size and can be cut if you want them smaller but I have not found the need to do this. The four pack at this price is a bargain.


Terry Harrison's Watercolour Mountains, Valleys and Streams
Terry Harrison's Watercolour Mountains, Valleys and Streams

Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for true beginners, 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this book expecting it to give clear step by step instructions whereas it is more about offering tips and suggestions. It does show the method used but not in a clear step by step form. The author seems to have forgotten what it is like to be a beginner. If you are a beginner and looking for step by step guidance choose Frank Clarke's Frank Clarke's Paint Box orFrank Clarke's Paintbox 2

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners, 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this book expecting it to give clear step by step instructions whereas it is more about offering tips and suggestions. It does show the method used but not in a clear step by step form. For example he tells you to use masking gel and says to add soap to the brush first but does not say whether the brush should be wet or dry before adding the soap. This may seem simple to someone who has painted for a little while but not to someone like myself who is just starting out. The author seems to have forgotten what it is like to be a beginner. If you are a beginner and want clear step by step instructions then buy Frank Clarke's PaintboxFrank Clarke's Paint Box or Paintbox 2Frank Clarke's Paintbox 2

2.0 out of 5 stars Badly made, 4 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The quality of this bag is very poor. When it arrived once of the zip pocket linings was not sown into the bag and was fraying badly. Returned the bag and would definitely not reorder.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for mixing small amounts of paint, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this for my watercolour paints when I only need a small amount and it works perfectly for this. The wells are not very deep so easy to get your brush into and to clean. Not a lot of room to mix paints though but then I use my main palette for this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't like this eraser, 30 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used this eraser a few times and it does not take the pencil lines out fully, so when using it on sketches that will be painted using watercolour paints if the paints are light the line(s) can still be seen. I have gone back to my normal soft eraser. Yes I get bits come off the eraser but they are easily blown away from the painting.
