Rex Art's exclusive Oil Painting Gift Set for 2014 is back, and better than ever! You know at Rex we are all about the best values we can find and at the same time meeting our rigid quality standards. You can be confident that our Rex Gift sets deliver on that promise!
Daler-Rowney, is one of England's oldest, and finest producers of art materials. They have been producing and innovating art materials since 1783. Obviously quality matters to us and to Daler Rowney, and the Daler-Rowney Georgian Oil Wooden Box Set included in this year's set does not disappoint. It includes 12 big 75ml tubes of Georgian Oil Colors. Most painting sets include 8 to 10 tubes that are around 25ml, but the Georgian tubes are three times that size! What does that mean for you as the gift giver? A lot more paint for your recipient to enjoy painting with!
Also included in the Daler-Rowney Georgian Oil Wooden Box Set are two short handled brushes, which make for a nice bonus in addition to our Rex Art Ultimate Oil & Acrylic Brush Set with Bamboo Brush Mat that is already included i the gift set. Lastly, the Georgian Oil tubes and brushes are housed in a stunning, deep colored mahogany stained and varnished wooden box that can be reused over and over for many years. It is simply beautiful! And when you give it as a gift you will be very proud.
The Richeson Lyptus Navajo Easel, which is an ideal all-purpose easel that offers all the features a new artist needs. It is very sturdy, easy to use and adjust. No need to pull out the screwdriver - it's fully assembled and made of Lyptus, which is a sustainably harvested wood.
What good is a painting set if you don't have something to paint on? And not just paper, but how about real artist canvas! That is why this year we have included two 11" x 14", top quality Red label and Blue label Fredrix canvases. These are gallery wrapped (no staples on the sides) artist quality Fredrix stretched canvases so you can hang them without the need of framing as soon as you are finished painting your masterpieces. Also, we have included three 9" x 12" Fredrix canvas panels for more practice and painting. The Richeson 9" x 12" Disposable Paper Palette is a fantastic way to mix your paints and then when you are done you can rip the top sheet off the pad and dispose of it without any mess!
A large selection of products are great, but good instruction is equally important. This year's set features Barron's 101 Techniques: Acrylics, which is loaded with 101 easy-to-follow exercises laid out in a progression of step-by-step captioned illustrations.
We know a lot of people are intimidated by mixing colors and that is why we included a color wheel, which is a fantastic and handy tool for learning color theory easily.
Last, but certainly not least, we have included a set of 8 Robert Simmons Signet Brush with Zip Case. This set features a selection of 8 Signet brushes in a high quality carry case to keep your brushes safe and readily available. Each side of the case folds into a convenient easel which allows the brushes to stand when in use.
