A 15 mL. tube of M. Graham watercolor in cadmium red light 050 ($13.99) dries to an opaque, granulated texture. Block printers may browse 37 cc tubes of Speedball's oil-based, waterproof inks suitable for permanent printing on fabric and paper.

Alternatively, expert framers can help you select a frame, mat, and type of glass that will protect a finished piece of artwork while subtly enhancing its colors or shape ($75–$150).

Top Notch Art Centre

Painters, graphic artists, and architects have found the tools of their trade at the one-stop Top Notch Art Centre since 1971. A floor-to-ceiling picture window beckons passersby on Craig Street, where shade trees shelter a block of historic buildings and small businesses, including a rare bookshop and a cobbler for broken dreams. Inside, the staff leads 2-D artists toward the right brush for watercolor or oil from their selection of Winsor Newtons, or printmaking papers from Arches Cover and BFK Rives lines. The store also makes an effort to seek out artisanal brands, such as Gamblin Artists Oils and Mt. Vision Handmade Pastels. Bookbinders can pick up screw posts and glue, and drafters can run their fingers over delicate, smooth vellum and curl them around the curves and angles of nine types of stylus guides. Past the tall, narrow aisles, a framing shop encases completed works of art in glass and caution tape to prepare them for display.
