Rex Art's exclusive Acrylic Painting Gift Set for 2015 is back! 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 System 3 Acrylic Jumbo Set included in this year's set does not disappoint. It includes 8 huge 120ml tubes of System 3 Acrylics. Most painting sets include tubes that are around 25ml, but the System 3 tubes are almost 5 times that size! What does that mean for you as the gift giver? A lot more paint for your recipient to enjoy painting with!

The Alvin Aluminum Field Easel is the perfect mixture of stability and portability. It holds up to 25 lbs., yet weights only 2 lbs. 8 oz. Great for the painter on the go or for artists who live in small spaces (think tiny big city apartments!).

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 the exclusive Rex Art Ultimate Oil & Acrylic Brush Set in a Bamboo brush holder. This set contains artist quality Richeson brushes custom selected based on our specifications and quality standards. It also comes with a handy bamboo brush holder, which is great for drying, protecting and transporting your brushes.

Remember you will not see our Acrylic Painting Gift Set anywhere except Rex Art, and it is offered at a fantastic price just for the holidays with Free Standard Shipping! We build our sets from the heart, and we only include the best of the best products from our inventory of over 20,000 art supplies. We know you are going to love giving these sets as much as we love creating them. These always sell out early in the season and are available in limited quantities so don't delay and order now!

Please note: Contents may vary slightly due to availability. Any substitutions will be of equal or greater value than the listed item.

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.

When you start painting most people only think of the brush when applying paint to your substrate, but there is a whole group of painters that actually never even use a brush! That's right! In fact, there are a school of painters that only use a palette knife when painting. But how do you know if you like using a brush, a palette knife, or both? That is why we included Daler Rowney System 3 7 Palette Knife Zip Case Set, which includes a selection of 7 palette knives in a handy durable zip case. Ideal for a wide variety of painting techniques, and the perfect set to test your artistic creativity with the palette knife. Plus, it even comes with a hand case to keep them protected, and stowed away for easy travel or storage.

Last, but certainly not least, we have included the exclusive Rex Art Ultimate Oil & Acrylic Brush Set in a Bamboo brush holder.

A versatile combination of System 3 acrylic colors, synthetic brushes, acrylic mediums and accessories, beautifully presented in a wooden box. A perfect set for every acrylic artist.

System 3 Original is a high quality, flow-formula, water-based acrylic paint which offers an excellent painting experience at an economical price. It is a comprehensive range which offers excellent light-fastness, permanence, durability and covering power.

All colors can be thinned with water to create pale washes or used directly from the pot or tube. In either form the color dries quickly to create an insoluble film. The quick drying properties of the range enable the artist to work quickly, placing colors over each other or side by side without any problem. Acrylic mediums can also be added to extend the creative possibilities, including screen printing.

System 3 Original has a medium body consistency. It is designed to offer the perfect compromise between firmer, more controlled applications of color and the need to cover large areas swiftly and evenly.

  • 2 22ml acrylic mediums: slow drying gel & gloss impasto gel
  • 50ml gloss soluble varnish

Acrylics are generally an easy medium with which to paint. If you’re a beginner, the
following tips (along with one of Rex Art’s acrylic paint gift sets) should help you get
started:

  • Acrylic paints dry quickly. Be sure to squeeze a small amount from the tube at a time to avoid wasting paint.
  • Blot your brush on a paper towel or cloth after every dunk in the water jar to avoid blotches in your painting.
  • If you’re blending acrylic paints, their quick drying nature can limit the time you have to work with the mixture. Dampen your work surface to increase your work time.
  • If you need a hard edge, place masking tape over dried paint. It will not ruin the existing layer.
  • Create a unique collage. When applied thickly, acrylic paint makes colorful collage glue.
