New in at Roseville Street - PanPastels

We have just received the brilliant PanPastels in our Roseville Store (they will also be available to purchase online very shortly)

If you have not heard of them then this is what they are all about

"PanPastel Colours are genuine artists’ quality pastels, uniquely packed in a pan format; available in a range of 80 colours.  They were developed so that artists can easily lift, apply and control pastel colour, just like true painting! The pan format holds the colour like paint for easy application.

Easy to Use - Blend, Layer & Apply like Paint
For pastel painting and mixed media work use PanPastel Colours to:
• Quickly block in large areas of colour in seconds, e.g. for backgrounds and underpainting
• Achieve a more painterly effect in pastels
• Apply controlled marks – from intense strokes to delicate marks
• Build up multiple layers while controlling the surface “tooth” fill
• Apply ultra thin “glazing” layers & veils of colour
The colours can be mixed and blended together to provide the artist with an infinite colour palette."

Check them out now they are fabulous

Prismacolor Pencils have arrived at Embsay Mills

Prisma Pencils have to be one of my favourite mediums to colour with so I am so pleased that we now stock them here at Embsay Mills. Prisma pencils are artist quality pencils with high quality pigments for rich colour saturation. The pencil has a soft, thick core which creates a smooth colour laydown for superior blending and shading. We have in stock the Portrait set which comprises of 24 pencils at £26.99............
and the 48 Pencil set, a gorgeous collection of colours priced at £49.99......
Here is a card i made using the pencils a little while ago
and here is a link to a video tutorial on how to use them...click here You may be thinking do I really need them when i have my copics and Promarkers ? Well they layer beautifully over the top of alcohol markers but equally are so lovely to use on their own.
