    We've been here in Seaton at Devon Art Supplies (30 Queen Street, Seaton, EX12 2RB) now since 2014 and we love serving our lovely community as well as visitors. We hope you will pop in for a browse when you are next in Seaton. We are just at the top of Queen Street next door to a deli called 'The bush hat' that sells the monst wonderful foods and opposite a stunning art and gifts shop called Triptych we are only a short walk from the beach so you can pick up your supplies then head down to the beach for the day.

    We are open 9.30am - 2.30pm Monday to Friday and 10am - 2.30pm Saturday. We can arrange collection times outside of this if needed, just email us at [email protected] or call 01297 624246. 

    (Some people ask why our hours are limited, this is because as such as small family business we cannot afford staff, Kerri-Ann runs she shop on her own 6 days a week but needs to make sure there is family time for young Reu & Fin too so this is why our hours are the way they are) 

    We hope you enjoy your visit to Seaton and hope to see you soon

    with love from Kerri-Ann, Jon and Family x

    If you are looking for humbrol spray paints you have come to the right place. Here in our Seaton, Devon store we stock a range of Humbrol supplies including the enamel tinlets, mediums, acrylics, varnishes and the spray paints. 

    Humbrol offers a limited range of colours in spray version, not all the colours that they offer in acrylic and enamel are available in spray so it's important to look either on our website at the list of available sprays or pop in store to see them.

    You have all been loving the yarns from Stylecraft including the beautiful 'Life Changes' range. We've sold out of the 'Ashes' colour blend but we still have some of the Corals and Berries blends which are beautiful. 

    There have been some new arrivals in the past few weeks too so it's well worth a visit in store to see us at Devon Art Supplies 30 Queen Street, Seaton. We have a great range of wool and yarn in store and we are doing our best to get these loaded on the the website as quickly as we can.

    We stock a range of lino rollers in store here at Devon Art Supplies in Seaton in a selection of sizes. They are obviously great for using with lino printing activites but have so many other great uses too. 

    We've used lino roller in workshops to create mixed media and inky background papers, to roll over large stamps to aid in getting a full clear stamped image and also used as a roller when working with air dry clays. 

    They are a great multi-use tool and will last a very long time if well cared for. Remember to clean after each use, remember to dry after cleaning or leave to air dry. Never leave in water. 

    Our supplier says: 
    "Ink roller manufactured from durable polypropylene with self-lubricating nylon bearings; robust constuction; EPDM rubber; hanging slot; aluminium core and a continuous steel shaft.
    These versatile inking rollers can be used for a variety of purposes other than lino printing. Simply turn the wet roller over and the handle doubles as a stand for cleaner working."
