The palette is a key accessory for any artist working with paints. We stock a great collection of artist palettes from easy tear-off paper palettes and plastic options, to ceramic and gorgeous walnut wood palettes. The brush is of course the best known and most commonly used of the painting tools, but palette knives have been the artist's tool behind many of the most impressive masterpieces that we have today.

But this is not all: make sure that you check out our range of sponges and containers. Art sponges are another one of those things which are small but extremely versatile. They really can be used for so many purposes in your art practice, such as mark making, cleaning, wetting your watercolour paper, blending chalk pastels or charcoal. Plus, you never really have enough containers as an artist. We stock a selection of different kinds of water pots, paint pans, storage pots, mixing containers, and more. In other words, no matter what kind of artform and medium you prefer, a sponge or a container is likely to come in handy.
Oil Dippers, Artist Mannequins & More
There are lots of great smaller accessories which might still play a significant part in your creative practice. This might include items such as artist oil dippers which can be an essential part of your setup if you are painting with oil. They will allow you to have an easily accessible, convenient and portable method of mixing your oil with paint.
Traditionally, no studio or creative space is complete without the addition of an artist mannequin. Easily manipulate the wooden mannequin into life-like shapes and this will mean that you have a useful framework for your artwork.
