Explore what’s new in art and craft materials with Eckersley's

Art & Craft Materials are constantly evolving, so we have teamed up with Eckersley’s Art & Craft to share some tips, techniques and savings on popular art materials for 2018.

As materials and colour technologies change thanks to interesting collaborations between scientists and artists, new techniques also continue to develop. For example, Liquitex (who invented the first water-based acrylic paint in 1955) have created a water-based acrylic formulation in a Paint Marker — perfect for on-the-go artists of today. In a world of water colours, Winsor & Newton are revolutionizing colour with the introduction of Professional Water Colour Sticks and Markers that are highly pigmented and compact, making them ideal for Plein Air work.
