Our art accessories range brings together products from some of the leading brands in the industry. We also like to make sure that our collection will offer you something useful whatever your level of experience or your budget.

Scalpels, Knives & Cutting Mats

The surgical precision that you will be able to get with these high performance artists' scalpels and knives will be perfect for anyone who is working with card or paper. These artist tools will help you to unleash your papercutting creativity! Don't forget the cutting mats too - to save your studio surfaces.

Tapes & Adhesives

We also have lots of tapes and adhesives in our collection. There are different adhesives which will be appropriate for different jobs. White glues are often best for the lightweight materials such as papers and cardboards. But then there are lots of other specialist glues such as fabric glues, wood glues and adhesive sprays which allow you to fasten a plethora of other materials.

Drawing Boards

When you are a creative person who loves to draw, the drawing board is a handy art accessory to have! We have sturdy drawing boards for in the studio, as well as more portable versions for when you are out and about. You'll also find useful 'bits and bobs' to go with the drawing boards such as clip and pins.

Canvas Making Equipment & Picture Hanging

You will also be able to pick up some high quality canvas making equipment and picture hanging accessories. If you want to try making your own canvas or need to create a specific size then we have lots of equipment here which will help you along with this process. Explore our range of staple guns and staple removers, as well as canvas stretching pliers. You will also find plenty of handy picture hanging accessories such as frame plates, d-rings, wire and cord, that will help you be able to display your stunning work of art.

Artist Rulers & Aids

There are lots of little accessories which are always helpful for the artist's studio, such as artist rulers and flexible curves as well all those extra art aids. Artists of many kinds make use of different accessories that can help them to achieve the perfect shape or angle in a given situation. These tools can also be extremely useful for measuring out dimensions when you are scaling up a sketch or planning out a project. If you are doing a technical drawing, precision is an absolute must, so it is very important that you are able to make sure that you are not a centimetre (or inch) out.

Palettes & Palette Knives

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.

Sponges & Containers

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.
