Art Carts

What’s inside July Red’s Art Cart?

The July 18 Red’s Art Cart is a special one because….. Red’s Art Cart has turned 1 years old!!! Now that is something worth celebrating. And Mrs Red has not disappointed, packing the Art Cart full of colourful fun for subscribers to enjoy!

 

To be perfectly honest, this was not the intended Cart for July. It was actually intended for April 18 however when it came time to order the stock, Mrs Red was given horrible news in that the main art supply, Brusho, was completely out of stock! Why? Because Brusho is the best and everyone wants to get their hands on some!

Skip forward to July and the Brusho was back in stock and I was able to get this Art Cart out there finally. I have also filled the Mrs Red’s Art Shop (.com) with the Brusho pots as well because once you try, you will be back for more colours.

So, what is Brusho? The correct name is Brusho Crystal Colour and it is a highly pigmented watercolour ink powder. There is nothing else like it around and its unique qualities make it unpredictable, fun and ideal for anyone wishing to create loose, impressionistic and vibrant art work. There are 30 colours in the range and they can be used for watercolour painting and design work, ink and wash, fabric decoration, dying, stenciling and printing. Perfect for the beginner who just wants to explore and also for children of all ages.

Not to be outdone, also in July’s Art Cart is two Derwent Graphik Line Painter pens. There are 20 colours in this range, the nib size is 0.5mm for all and they contain water-based pigment paint that is lightfast, opaque and permanent. The other great thing about this fabulous range of paint pens is that the barrel is frosted so you can see the paint moving inside and know when it’s almost time to buy a new one. They are completely waterproof as I prove in the YouTube video below.

And of course, to use the Brusho, you need a paint brush and not a fine dainty one at that. So also included in the Cart is a big Nuart round squirrel brush. This brush holds so much water and was fabulous to use and is at a really economical price.

Finally, Stonehenge have bought out a watercolour paper and a sample selection of these papers have also been included for subscribers to try out.

All stock in this month’s Art Cart can be purchased through the Mrs Red’s art shop which is www.mrsredsartshop.com

As always, make sure you check out the YouTube video’s below to see an explanation of how to use Brusho and to watch the frog artwork come together. If you would like to subscribe to the Art Carts, then please follow the links on this website. PLUS, Mrs Red now holds two online art classes per month where the Art Cart subscribers can come together for an art class, show their work, discuss materials, ask questions and get advice on their work, all in the comfort of their own creative space at home!

Red’s Art Cart is perfect for hobby artists, people who live in rural areas, artists who need that push to just get moving on something and is a great way to hold accountability for your monthly creative time. You will also use products that you would not normally purchase and some Carts contain samples of products that normally have to be purchased in larger amounts. The feeling you get from sitting down and having a dabble is such a wonderful and healthy way to spend your down time. Give it a go!

Finally, if you have purchased this cart, please show us your artworks via Instagram or the Facebook page which is mentioned on your information card inside your cart. This way we all get to see your beautiful oil paintings.

Happy Brusho month everyone!

Mrs Red
