The Shopsy art supplies collection covers a wide range of mediums that include watercolour and acrylic paints, rolled and framed canvas, colour pencils, soft pastels, coloured inks and Calligraphy sets.
Art supplies are an excellent gift for young children and adults alike as they offer countless hours of activity that can be done individually or as a group. Acrylic paints can be used on multiple surfaces which include paper, wood and canvas, they are water-soluble and dry very quickly. The watercolour paints are easy to manage and traditionally used to paint on paper. The miniature painting uses watercolour paints that have been practised for centuries. The travel-friendly box sets for watercolour are lightweight and can easily be carried in your backpack for easy access and sketchbook painting.
There are Caligraphy pen sets that have ready-made nibs of various sizes dipped into loose ink for lettering and verse writing on paper, leather or canvas. The colour pencils and soft pastels sets have a large selection of colours that can create beautiful images of landscape, animals and portraits. When deciding which art materials to buy it is important to have a budget in mind as there are various quality grades available in the same medium. Acrylics are cheaper than watercolour paints which makes them ideal for children. Poster paints are also a cheap and affordable option for children's art supplies.
