The Art Store and its talented techs supply artists of every skill level with brushes and canvases while furnishing finished works with eye-catching customized framework. The Art Store has more than 1,000 moldings and frame sizes to choose from ($5/ft.–$150/ft.), allowing customers to frame portraits, photographs, diplomas, or unsuspecting younger brothers who did not dress the family dog in a tutu. A basic frame style plus glass, dry mount, labor, and assembly gets art aficionados a 24"x36" custom frame built for approximately $79.95, a 20"x24" custom frame for approximately $59.95, and a frame large enough to encase the Sistine Chapel for one dozen rubies and all the riches on the moon.
Canvases come in many styles and sizes for life-size paintings of whales and whale-mice. The 24"x36" hand-stretched Winsor & Newton artist's canvas is back-stapled and offers balanced absorbency for oversized games of tic-tac-toe ($19.37). With a vast array of brushes for oil, acrylic, and watercolor artistry, painters have no problem finding the bristles needed to make splendid dabs and doodles. The Winsor & Newton size 10 oil brush is made from the highest quality hog bristles, which allows for a high degree of sensitivity when painting detailed spider webs ($12.97). The Princeton Series 6150 half-inch angle shader similarly satisfies amateur professional watercolorers by holding ample color and providing stellar responsiveness with traditional white nylon hair plucked from traditional colonial nylon wigs ($6.57).
