Catalyst Art Tools
This collection of Catalyst art tools should have plenty to interest many an artist, whether you are starting out or experienced. Catalyst art tools are an innovative new line from the Princeton Artist Brush Company, a team who have been one of the most successful brush suppliers in the North of America for over 25 years. The idea of the Princeton Catalyst range was to create silicon blades that will allow for a new form of artistic expression. Sitting somewhere between a palette knife and a brush, there is really nothing else quite like the Catalyst art tool.
The Princeton Catalyst tool comes into its own when used with those heavy bodied paints such as thicker oils and acrylics. However, as these blades are heat resistant, you will also find that they are of great value when used for encaustic painting. The catalyst blade has been taken up and used by artists all round the world with mediums such as plaster, clay, gels, pastes and wax. This is at long last the all-in-one tool that excels in each application.
Easy to Use
The way that Catalyst have made use of silicon is such that these blades are highly practical when it comes to the clean-up. Once you have used them, you will simply be able to wipe the blade clean. The blades are also solvent resistant, so that the job of cleaning off tough substances is a breeze. Dried paint simply peels off the surface, and in other cases, a soak in mild soap should do the trick. You can even detach your blade from the handle when washing and then re-attach when it is squeaky clean.
Range of Catalyst Blades
Take your pick from several clever Catalyst blade and wedge designs and start experimenting! We have a selection of their products that includes slanted blades with handles, as well as handheld wedge tools. The handheld wedges are ergonomically designed so that you will be able to manipulate your medium with ease, whilst feeling a sense of connection to your work as it takes shape. All the silicone wedge and blade products offer the perfect level of flexibility to allow you to have full creative control.
