Robert Simmons Acrylic Short Handle Paintbrush

Daler-Rowney is giving all ArtSnackers a first look at their Robert Simmons Acrylic Short Handle Paintbrush line. Different types of paint require different types of paintbrushes, and a good acrylics brush should hold the paint without losing its shape. The synthetic fibers used in this brush were chosen to provide both the softness and the control that you need in order to get the most out of acrylic painting. 

Daler-Rowney System 3 Medium Body Acrylic Paint

Use your new acrylic paintbrush with the paint that it was made for – Daler-Rowney System 3 Medium Body Acrylic. This water-based paint uses high quality pigments. Acrylic paint can be laid down thick or can be thinned with water to create a watercolor wash effect. The quick drying time of this medium body paint makes it easy to experiment with layering and other effects. 

Copic Classic Marker

We love the versatility of a good double-ended marker. This Copic Classic Marker features a fine point nib and a broad chisel nib. Use it to sketch in delicate details, then flip it around to color in large areas. This refillable tool is compatible with the Copic Color system and is offered in a total of 214 colors. 

Small 3D Zip by Baggu

Pack up this month’s Artsnacks and take them with you anywhere in this 3D Zip by Baggu. This unique bag can expand to pack in even more of your favorite art supplies. Made of ripstop nylon (a special reinforced fabric that resists tearing), your 3D Zip is machine washable, to keep that sailor stripe design looking bright and clean.
