It’s the same great extra fine, vinyl-based professional grade line of matte permanent colors offering the optics, spirit, and feel of gouache, old tempera paints, and primitive painting grounds that you’ve always loved, but after being unavailable for what felt like forever, Flashe Matte Artists Colors are back with a new look and eleven (11) new colors for a total of 76 colors (including 12 iridescent and 6 fluorescent)!
Hyper-matte, velvety, and perfectly opaque on any surface, Flashe Matte Artists Colors are extremely highly pigmented, versatile, and can be applied densely for maximum opacity, or diluted with water to create transparent watercolor effects. Offering good adherence and resistance to weather aggression, Flashe Matte is ideal for fresco and wall painting, faux finish, film/tv/theater decoration, etc. Compatible with paper, canvas and other supports, or for preparing grounds.
The K-42 is a classic paint marker. It comes in 17 colors, here Larson uses Light Blue, Orange, and Yellow. The alcohol-based paint is permanent, opaque, and non-toxic. The marker features a broad-tip with valve-action so that the artist can lay down an abundance of color while strictly regulating the paint’s flow. Handmade in the USA.
This marker is a great all-around marker for everyday use. It has a large capacity and valve-action tip, so it can easily be re-inked and last a long time. Additionally, the nib is double sided, with a 3mm bullet tip on one side and a 5mm chisel tip on the other! High quality alcohol-based ink is permanent, opaque, and excellent for use on paper, cardboard, metal, and painted surfaces. Available in Super Black, Cyan, and Magenta. Handmade in the USA.
One of the great things about Raw Materials’ location in Downtown Los Angeles is its close proximity to world-class museums and galleries, and having access to their arts programming. One such neighbor is Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles, in the heart of the Arts District. This month Hauser & Wirth’s Family Studio Workshop takes inspiration from Mary Heilmann’s monumental mural ‘Pacific Ocean,’ directly across the gallery’s onsite restaurant, Manuela. Participants will combine watercolor paint and tape to make their own miniature murals that represent a feeling associated with Los Angeles. Finished projects will echo themes represented in Heilmann’s site-specific work, like the movement of water and California surf culture. The workshop will be led by Matt MacFarland and is scheduled for Sunday, January 27, 2019 at 12 pm.
This drop-in activity at Hauser & Wirth is free, however, reservations are recommended. Click here to register.
