Back to School- Supplies
Does anyone else actually look forward to unpacking all of their supply orders?
Look at all that paper fun! Imagine the possibilities.
Beads, and buttons, and gems- Oh, My!
Such pretty yarn to use in weaving and to hang our clay owls.
I must give some props to Dick Blick (Blick Art Supply) Company:
These chalk pastels are wonderful! They are soft, but not TOO soft. They remind me of the more expensive set that I cherished as a young artist. I always wanted my students to have those more expensive sets, but... well, you know- budget, budget, budget. Finally, a pastel set that doesn't cost and arm & leg, but is NICE.
Last year, I ordered several bisque tiles from Dick Blick and more than 3/4 came in chipped or broken. Bummer! They replaced them, without charge, but it was a delay I hadn't planned on. However, this year, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the tiles came packaged VERY carefully, as seen below. Not one (out of 100) were broken, chipped, or cracked. Bravo!
