The long awaited 2015 is here, which means it’s time to drop the P from your party hats and get back to the studio! To celebrate the beginning of the Cass Art Sale, we’ve selected our favourites to make shopping for art materials a little easier this January...
It seems that the dark days of winter are still stretching ahead of us. Brighten up your days with the Daylight Company Easel Lamp. It does what it says on the tin and more – clamping firmly to your easel with an extra-long cable and optimum brightness to help artists who favour the smallest of details. Work through the night at your ease!
Speaking of easels, Mabef’s M10 H-Frame Easel is finely crafted from oil, stain resistant beech wood and would make the ultimate addition to any artist studio. Simple to assemble and suited to canvases up to 120cm tall, any creative who enjoys working at a large scale deserves a Mabef. Cass Art has big love for Mabef, with a sneaky suspicion that fellow artists will too.
Start the year as you mean to go on with a beautiful Set of 14 Dr Martins Inks. The concentrated formula means they’ll last for ages and the colour is the most vivid on the market. Use with brush, nib, aqua brush or air brush for illustrations or design projects. This range of 14 colours offers a balanced set for everyone.
Our sale is the best time of the year to indulge in luxury materials at half the price – literally! Hailed by Pablo Picasso, the Sennelier Box of 120 Oil Pastels provides all the pastels you’ll need for the whole of 2015. The intensely pigmented colour matched with the creamiest of textures allows Sennelier pastels to thoroughly cover a wide range of surfaces. After the season of giving, why not splurge a little on yourself in the sale?
2015 is a time for Oil Paint – haven’t you heard? For artists who are keen to begin with oils, the Cobra Set of 10 Water Mixable Oil Paints is the place to start. Making the transition from acrylics to oils is simple, Cobra’s range are mixable with water. The set also comes with a medium for you to try your hand at blending oils. Complete with palette dipper and two flat brushes, grab a canvas and you’re good to go!
Our Student Ambassadors are always raving about Copic’s range of markers – for the designers and illustrators among us, why not invest in your own Set of 10 for the New Year? Copic’s shades of natural grey set give subtle hues and shading to drawings and designs, excellently demonstrating the effects you can achieve with their chisel and precision nibs.
