New Product Hightlight – Langton Watercolor Paper

Rex Art Weclomes Langton Watercolor Papers from Daler Rowney

Rex Art Weclomes Langton Watercolor Papers from Daler Rowney

At Rex Art we are always looking for great new products from our manufacturers, and Daler Rowney has launched a premier watercolor paper line called Langton. We partnered with Daler Rowney to offer this fabulous paper to our customers first, and it is now available from us.

Langton watercolor paper is a professional line of paper made with 100% cotton pulp of the highest quality, and is acid free. It is traditionally made on a cylinder mould machine, and features a gelatinized surface for strength and resilience. Currently, it is available in pads, blocks, and 10 packs of 22″ x 30″ sheets with a weight of 140 lbs / 300 gsm. We also offer a beautiful Langton watercolor sketchbook with 200 lb paper, and a side spiral binding, which would make a great on the go watercolor substrate!

The Langton Prestige Watercolor Spiral Pad

What was really surprising to us was the value of the Langton watercolor papers. The Langton is of equal or better quality than a leading national brand like Arches or Fabriano, but is very affordable. For instance, currently we offer the 10 packs of the 22″ x 30″ paper for $35.48 per package, or only $3.54 per sheet! That is very affordable for a watercolor paper of that size, and quality. Definitely worth a try.

If you would like a sample of the paper included with your next order please mention it in your order comments and we will include a complementary sample for you. You know at Rex you can always count on great prices, and the Langton watercolor papers are currently available up to 50% off. Also, from now until the end of August we have an extra 10% off available for any of the Langton watercolor paper products. Simply add this coupon to your cart by entering the code below, or click this coupon. We would love to hear your feedback regarding the new Langton papers. Please post your comments here or post a review.

14th Anniversary Special – Additional 10% Off St. Petersburg Watercolors

Spring is here and so is Watercolor season @ Rex Art!

OK, so I know we are located in Miami, Florida and the arrival of Spring time does not quite have the same significance as it does up in the more Northern States. However, that does not mean that we do not understand what a great time of the year it is to finally get outside and start painting. Certainly one of the most popular plein air mediums is watercolor due to its quick drying properties and compactness. There are a couple of additional specials that I wanted to share that are easily missed but will make your watercolor excursions even more enjoyable!

If you like your watercolors in pencil format we carry several lines, but by far the most popular brand we sell is the Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencils. The Durer line of watercolor pencils are regarded as some of the finest watercolor pencils available today, and would make an outstanding addition to your portfolio of artistic supplies.

To make this even better, right now we are offering a FREE Loew Cornell brush with the purchase of any Albrecht Durer watercolor set! Just add this coupon to your cart.

Another option in watercolor pencils are the Prismacolor Watercolor pencils in open stock in case you want to pick out individual colors. Right now they are on sale at 50% off or only $0.80 per pencil!

If you prefer a more traditional version of watercolor we also offer a fantastic selection of watercolor tubes from Maimeri, Sennelier, Daler Rowney, Quiller, and Grumbacher.

Right now if you purchase any brand of watercolors that total over $100 we will include 3 Free tubes of Quiller Watercolor so you can try them for Free!



Lastly, one of the newest items we carry for watercolor, and has turned out to be very popular are the Fabriano Artistico Watercolor Blocks, Fabriano Artistico Watercolor Paper Packs, and Artisti Blocks. Fabriano has been making beautiful papers for a long time, and these watercolor papers are no exception. The Artistico watercolor paper packs are especially popular because of their reduced sizes, quality and affordability.

So get out there and enjoy Springtime and send us some pictures of your wonderful artwork. Who knows we might even post a few here for others to enjoy! You can also share your painting experiences by leaving your comments!
