[Jullian JT3 beech wood table easels](http://gr.pn/r5iNhT) ($19.99) prop-up blossoming masterpieces up to 28-inches high and support spineless artist’s dummies during tabletop breakdancing competitions. Used by Vincent Van Gogh, [LUKAS 1862 fine oil paints](http://gr.pn/qGE3Tn)—named to reflect the company’s founding 149-years ago—offer unparalleled color intensity and hastened drying time ($5.69+ for 37 mL), while [Creative Mark FX brushes](http://gr.pn/p7BXOl) employ high-quality Taklon hair to deliver specialized multiline, ribbon-style, and CGI ghost–shaped strokes ($4.89–$7.25 each). Masterful moustache graffitiers can go pro with [Prismacolor illustration marker sets](http://gr.pn/nh67An) featuring fine, brush, chisel, and mixed tip sets ($6.90–$13.80). Jerry’s Artarama also offers an astounding array of fine custom-framing options to protect and enhance finished canvases, prints, and finger-painted Jimmy Buffet fan art. A wide selection of matting options enhances traditional custom wood frames, which provide an air of elegance to any piece, and custom aluminum frames that offer an industrial edge. Custom framing costs, on average, $200–$300, though costs can vary widely depending on size and materials.
At Jerry’s Artarama, resident artists draw on personal experience and channel the shop's four decades in business to help create works in nearly any medium. Shelves bravely bear the weight of multitudinous tubes of paint ranging from traditional oil paints made from 150-year-old processes, to easy-to-use acrylic pigments. Artists can wield a Mejillo TruColor palette to serve as a launching pad for paints, or take up PrismaColor colored pencils to add vivid pigmentation to sketches. For more specialized projects, customers can stock up on the store's street-art supplies and screen-printing kits.
Meanwhile, the framing professionals at Jerry’s Artarama navigate a bounty of glass, mats, mounting, and moulding options to personalize the framing of photos, watercolor landscapes, and napping bats. Frame options include the warm whorls of wooden frames as well as silver, black, or gold aluminum frames to complement any work's color scheme.
