PASTELS

With professional materials Pastels will last an incredibly long time with proper care. They are actually superior to oils in that they will not crack or darken over time and every bit as permanent. The pastels of Degas and Cassatt were created back in the 1800's and still just as beautiful as the day they were completed.

COLOURED PENCIL
Professional Coloured Pencil will last an incredibly long time with proper care. They are actually superior to oils in that they will not crack or darken over time and every bit as permanent.


ACRYLIC PAINT

Original art is an investment not only valued monetarily. Your painting will be appreciated by future generations, not just by those who view it today. Acrylic paintings are expected to have a longer life span than oil paintings, and are considered more resistant to aging. That is, they develop cracks less often than oil paintings and are more resistant to pressure..


OIL PAINT

Oil paints have a lot more pigment in them than Acrylics, allowing more vivid and reach colours. Oil paintings are valued more than other paintings. Even after a hundred years, the picture painted with oils will not lose its value and attractiveness
