“The Legion Synthetic Mongoose series are a fantastic set of brushes. From flat to round and filbert in between, these brushes are versatile and long lasting. Not only do these smooth bristles make for a soft application, but they have the right amount of resistance that when you apply pressure, they flick back to their original form. It’s hard to find a brush with both grace and strength, but Trekell hits the mark.” – JACUB GAGNON
NOODLER'S AHAB PEN
The Ahab pen is made of a celluloid derivative and is technically biodegradable and formed from a “renewable resource” even though our resin and our ebonite can last more than a lifetime – as proven by vintage pens long in existence that were stored well. As with all celluloid pens one should NEVER use alcohol or cleaners/rinses that contain alcohols with any celluloid containing pens. If using “common water” as a rinse is your choice, remember it contains bleach and should never be mixed with ammonia..

“Noodler’s Ink” has the lowest cost per volume in stores that carry it and it’s 100% made in the USA from cap to glass to ink. The ink with the catfish on the label symbolizes a southern sport that attempts to equalize the struggle between man and animal in the quest for a sense of fair play — and thus a fair price. Noodler’s refuses to manufacture ink cartridges due to the egregious economics these disposable bits of plastic form as an illusion of value until compared with the economics of the glass bottle. The lowest cost cartridge in the world is still several times as costly as our standard bottle by both weight and volume as well as various dye value measures! In addition, each cartridge is DISPOSABLE..which undermines a key advantage of the fountain pen – its inherently refillable design saves both economic value and is environmentally sound as well as enabling its utility to be far more vast than any other writing instrument as it can utilize hundreds of different inks – whereas cartridges are limited to one ink per cartridge! Cartridges rob one of many of the fundamental economic and utilitarian advantages of the fountain pen.

MICHAEL HARDING OILS
My paints are made by hand, using techniques which date back to the days of the Old Masters. There is a very simple reason for this painstaking process. As an artist and painter I wanted to create colours that were true and vibrant, and paint which was beautiful and durable.
The greater the pigment content of a paint the greater the resistance it has to fading. Nearly all manufacturers use various fillers to extend the volume of the oil paint. It may increase profits but it compromises on quality. I totally refuse to do this. Why make something exceptional and then dilute it?
I will not claim that my paints will turn you into a great painter, but I can promise they will have a profound effect on your work. Your colours will be stronger and richer, and you will find the texture of the paint incomparable. You will love working with them.
Try them. You will be amazed!

PLAISIR FOUNTAIN PEN
Features Bright Silky Scratch Resistant Metal Body Due To Pearl Processing Treatment.

Everyone has experienced the inconvenience being unable to use a ballpoint pen after a long period of no usage.
This is especially problematic for fountain pens, for which daily usage is usually recommended. The new PLAISIR model solves this problem by using a newly designed structure inside the cap, which a year experiments has shown prevents ink from drying.
Moreover, this cap reduces ink loss by evaporation. We recommend the new PLAISIR Fountain Pen to those people hesitant to use existing fountain pens because of their ink -drying problems. The PLAISER Fountain Pen is suitable for everyday usage as well as occasional usage.
