New GOLDEN products for 2019

GOLDEN Artist Colors has released some exciting new products for 2019 and they're now available at Art Placement. First up is their long awaited Pouring Medium. Available in Matte and Gloss in 4 sizes (8oz, 16oz, 32oz, 128oz), Color Pouring Mediums help artists to achieve quality results with paint pours. Pouring Mediums are low viscosity, pourable, self-levelling mediums with low-crazing extenders to reduce the chances of cracks and fissures in the finished surface. Also new for 2019 is their Isolation Coat, a ready-to-use sealing coat for acrylic paintings. Isolation coat is a permanent acrylic medium that seals surface absorbency and allows for improved varnish application and easier varnish removal. Apply one or more layers before varnishing.

Their popular MSA Varnish with UVLS now comes in a Semi-Gloss finish, in addition to the Satin, Gloss, and Matte options previously available.

Golden Gripr now available at art placement

NEW! GOLDEN GRIPR™ - paint tube opener

Golden Artist Colors is invested in helping artists at every stage of their creative journey with quality products, information, and product support. To improve the user experience of its packaging, GOLDEN is introducing a new tube cap for 2 and 5 oz. GOLDEN Acrylic tubes. The new deep-cog design is more comfortable to use with a smoother grip that is 35% taller, providing more surface area and leverage. New caps will begin rolling out in the first half of 2019 and will flow through store shelves as product with existing caps sells through.

The new cap is an improvement in packaging design for customers, but acrylic paints can also act as a glue between caps and tubes when dry, so artists may continue to have difficulty removing even the new caps from time to time. Additionally, people with diminished manual dexterity or hand strength find the small caps on most paint tubes difficult or even painful to work with.

This is where the new GOLDEN GRIPR® comes in!  This strong and flexible plastic tube opener makes it easy to quickly remove stuck caps. It works with both new and old 2 and 5 oz. tube cap designs as well as smaller acrylic tubes, Williamsburg Oil tubes, QoR® watercolor tubes, and similarly sized competitor paint tube caps.

The new GRIPR tube cap tool is available NOW @ Art Placement Art Supplies.

ONLY $3.75!!!

Derwent Drawing Pencils Derwent Graphitint Pencils Derwent Inktense Blocks Derwent Metallic Pencils Derwent Tinted Charcoal

Derwent Drawing Pencils

Great for nature studies, landscapes, seascapes and wildlife drawing, plus traditional portraits in the styles of the old masters. These traditional round artists pencils come in a range of intense colors. The soft and creamy texture of the extra-thick color lead allows blending to achieve a variety of colors and tones. The easy-to-apply waxy consistency produces a smooth velvety finish on paper, and the extra wide 5mm color strip is ideal for blending.

Derwent Graphitint Pencils

Graphitint pencils combine the creativity of a graphite pencil with a hint of soft, subtle color. Used dry, Graphitint offers soft color hues; add water and the color becomes more vibrant. Color tints range from soft grays, blues and greens to glowing russets, plums and browns.

Derwent Inktense Blocks

These chunky water-soluble ink blocks provide vibrant strokes of ink-like color, bringing a new sense of freedom and color to drawing and painting. When used dry, the blocks provide pure vibrant color, but can also be completely washed out and transformed into a translucent ink-like paint which, when dry, can be worked over. They are extremely versatile and can be used for a wide range of creative effects. They can be used like pans of paint, dipped in water to apply color directly to paper, used dry on wet paper for instant intense color and more. They can also be used on fabric to create stunning silk paintings and other craft projects.

Derwent Metallic Pencils

Add class and shine to your drawings with intense metallic colors. These metallic pencil leads are made from natural metallic pigments encased in 9-ply cedar wood barrels. The vivid pigments are most dramatic when used on a dark background and are also water-soluble for washes and reduced metallic effect.

Derwent Tinted Charcoal

These tinted charcoal pencils combine the dramatic beauty of charcoal with a gentle hint of color. When applied, the charcoal can be smudged and blended to achieve deep, rich tones. The pencils sharpen to a fine point for detail, and are easy to control for accurate drawing with less mess. They are available in a variety of subtle colors including white for burnishing and highlights.

NEW Sennelier ABSTRACT Acrylics

Art Alternatives Studio Acrylics


Sennelier has been a byword for quality among artists since 1887, the year when Gustave Sennelier first opened his store as a colour merchant. He then developed extra-large paint tubes for the artist Nicolas de Staël and created the oil pastel for Pablo Picasso. 128 years later, Sennelier is innovating once again by launching the first range of acrylic paints for artists in a brand new style of packaging. Abstract is the result of three years of research by the Sennelier expert lab team. It is a fine acrylic paint which meets the standards set by all Sennelier products. Its pigment concentration--quite amazing for this segment of the market--gives it a creamy-to-thick consistency which we’ve called “Heavy Body”, along with incomparable covering power. This paint is a pleasure to handle with a brush, a palette knife or straight out of the soft pack! Its ease of application onto multiple surfaces makes it very popular with students, professional painters, street artists, and others. Click here to learn more...

NEW - Williamsburg Handmade Oils - Neutral Grays 150 ml tubes

Williamsburg Neutral Grays

Ground in alkali-refined linseed oil, the Neutral Grays use a combination of Titanium White, Lamp Black, and small amounts of various iron oxides (Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna) to pull the otherwise too-cool mixtures towards neutral. It took great finesse from the Lab, with the goal to always track as tightly as possible, the spectral curves generated from an official, newly minted set of Munsell Grays. The new Williamsburg Grays match the Munsell values nearly flawlessly across the spectrum. The fact that any attempt at Munsell equivalents are constantly compared to such exacting, universal model is what sets these colors apart. The Munsell Grays are meant to form an objective and known scale that any other color can be measured against. Incorporated as part of one's palette, they can allow a painter to adjust a color's chroma in a repeatable and precise way that is simply not attainable otherwise. Williamsburg Special Edition Neutral Grays are available in 150 ml tubes. More...

M. Graham & Co. Artist Acrylics

Graham Acrylics

Created using a unique, high solids acrylic polymer resin, which enables substantially increased pigment loads by reducing dependency upon artificial thickeners. Greater pigment loads result in lively, bright clean colors that give radiance to the finished works. The resin also provides a unique delicacy of touch and offers a world of opportunity from fine detail to broad, full brushed applications. The color is slower drying allowing subtle blends and soft transitions between tones. A slower "cure" rate allows the surface to be reactivated for the first hour after application for striking wet into wet effects. Traditional or experimental methods are easily expressed with the body and flow of pure color free from extenders and adulterants. Thick, full strength color may be applied in dramatic impasto effect or layered in glazes to achieve luminosity and harmony.

SpectraFix Pastel Fixative

Colorless, transparent and dries rapidly to a water-resistant non-yellowing film. SpectraFix blends art-grade milk casein with water and pure grain alcohol adding a tiny amount of isopropyl alcohol. The alcohol evaporates rapidly taking the water with it, leaving a thin film of casein which quickly dries to a protective matte surface.

Pastel fixatives on the market today use resin varnishes, propellants and other chemicals as solvents, noticeably darkening the value and shifting the hue, as well as posing health concerns. While it is impossible not to affect the delicate powdery colors of pastels with any kind of spray, even plain water, SpectraFix minimally alters a pastel’s value, and does not change the hue. Your colors remain fresh and vibrant, even after several layers. Great for all dry media with no toxic fumes! No more trips outside to spray your work.
