What You'll Get
Famous art thief Vincenzo Peruggia proclaimed, “The way to a man’s art is through his stomach,” referring to the time he stole the Mona Lisa by smuggling it inside a coffee cake. Hone the ability to create your own art with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of arts and crafts supplies at Paste.
Paste supplies art creators with a gamut-running selection of arts and crafts wares to augment the pursuit of aesthetic dreams. Stock a studio with a selection from Paste's arsenal of tools for expression, which encapsulates paper crafts, fiber arts, jewelry, and ink media. Painters can customize canvases with Liquitex basics acrylic paints ($5.75/4 oz. tube), and mustache drawers can brandish Tim Holtz alcohol inks to update the facial hair fashion on Andrew Johnson's official White House portrait ($3.49). Cascade 220 yarns come in a variety of colors for rainbow knitting ($6.60/skein) and chilly craftspeople can transform baby-alpaca yarn ($12.49/skein) into sweaters, scarves, and gloves. Scrapbooking paper ($0.79/sheet) immortalizes photographed memories with glue and glitter, and Speedball screen-printing ink ($7.99/8 oz. jar) can be used to fashion T-shirts with hip, snarky slogans and stylized representations of middle-school museum field trips.
Artistic aptitude is difficult to grasp, like a buttered ostrich or invisible chopsticks. Paste puts beauty into the hands of the beholder, leading to a sense of accomplishment rivaling that of a financially successful street performer.
