    We've had a number of people ask recently if we stock Easels here at Seaton's arts and crafts shop. We do indeed. We sometimes have them available in store but we always have them available on special order (which usually takes just 2 days to arrive) As a small independant family shop we don't have the fund available to keep large amounts of higher priced stock in store so we sometimes keep certain items as 'special orders' we are very lucky though that our supplier has a quick delivery service so there isn't long to wait on your special orders with us. 

    We offer table easels and freestanding ones suitable for field work and studio work. 

    If you want to take a look at the types currently available you can see them listed here on our website. If you want to have a look at them to see what they are like we have display ones in store so we are happy to show you those. 

    We hope you are enjoying your week and look forward to seeing you soon in store at 30 Queen Street, Seaton, Devon, EX12 2RB

    We will be uploading new videos that feature these inks to our Youtube channel soon, make sure you subscribe to www.youtube.com/kerriannbriggs to keep up to date with all our arty hints and tips. 

    If you are wondering why everyone is loving FW inks this information sourced from our supplies might help:

    "The major development of inks in recent years has been the increasing use of pigments and acrylic resins. The difference between the dye-based inks and the pigmented inks are a slight reduction in colour intensity, but much improved resistance to fading. 

    FW Artists’ Ink is an acrylic-based, pigmented, water-resistant ink (on most surfaces) in a range of 38 colours, all of which have either a 3 or 4 star rating for permanence. Such a high degree of lightfastness over such a range of fully intermixable colours makes them ideal for use by artists in the production of pictures for permanent display.

    Equally, however, colours can be substantially diluted to achieve the most subtle of tones, very similar in character to watercolour. Such washes will dry to a water-resistant film on virtually all surfaces and successive layers of colour can be laid over. FW Artists’ Inks work well through airbrushes and technical pens. "

    If you want to take a look at some of the FW pens we have you'll find those here.
