Rex Art's exclusive Oil 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 Daler-Rowney Georgian Oil Jumbo Set included in this year's set does not disappoint. It includes 8 huge 120ml tubes of Georgian Oils. Most painting sets include tubes that are around 25ml, but the Georgian 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: Oils, 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.

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.

A great introduction to the understanding of contemporary mediums and their properties. The set includes 2 oz. each of:

  • Galkyd
  • Neo Megilp
  • Refined linseed oil
  • Gamsol
  • Cold wax medium

And a 37ml tube if Galkyd G-Gel.

Galkyd
High viscosity and fast dry. Galkyd increases the fluidity of oil colors and speeds drying time. Thin layers of oil colors are dry in 24 hours. Galkyd also levels brush strokes, creates a strong, flexible paint film and leaves enamel-like glossy finish. Can be thinned with odorless mineral sprits. Make excellent glazing mediums.

Neo Megilp
Medium viscosity and medium dry. Gives body to paint and decreases viscosity while suspending and supporting paint in a soft, silky gel. This product can be used to produce a luminous Turner-like effect. Will not darken or brittle, and allows paint to be workable for hours.

Refined Linseed Oil
A naturally occuring vegetable oil pressed from American flax seeds. It is as light and pure as industrially produced linseed oil can be made. Use in moderation to thin oils or as an ingredient in traditional painting mediums.

Gamsol
Excellent solvents for thinning mediums and for general painting, including brush and studio clean up. Safer for painters, paintings, and the environment than turpentine and harsh mineral spirits.

Cold Wax Medium
A soft paste formulated to knife consistency that makes oil colors thicker and with a more matte finish. Use a small amount to make other Gamblin mediums more matte. Can also be used to matte the surface of finished paintings and may be buffed to a satin sheen, if desired.

Galkyd G-Gel
High viscosity and fast dry. A gelled alkyd resin painting medium formulated to hold brush strokes and create transparent impasto. Can be applied in multiple layers.

Oils are an extremely versatile medium that push artists to explore the boundaries of their creativity. However, they can be fussy and it takes practice to get a handle on the paints. Even the best oil painters are always learning more about this intriguing medium. Here are some things to remember when using testing the supplies found in our oil painting gifts:

  • The “Fat over Lean” Principle: Each layer of oil should be thicker than the previous layer. The bottom layers absorb moisture from the top layers, but if the top layers are thinner they can crack.
  • Linseed oil is optimal for bottom layers in a painting because it dries more thoroughly than other oils. However, substitute linseed for poppy oil if you’re using whites or blues – linseed oil has the tendency to yellow.
  • Do not dry paintings in the dark or a thin film may rise to the top and yellow your painting.
  • Hold your brush near the middle or end of the handle. Oil brushes are long for a reason. Speaking of brushes, purchase a nice set for oil painting (preferably hog hair, sable or synthetic sable). Nylon brushes tend to lose bristles in the paint.
  • Your workspace should have abundant natural lighting. Rex Art offers several of Daylight Full Spectrum products for excellent prices. If natural sunlight is scarce, perhaps invest in an artificial daylight lamp is a good investment. You should also make sure your space is well-ventilated.
