For paper, pads and journals, we’re looking to acquire other variants of the Stillman and Birn sketchbooks especially the Zeta line. We’re also considering getting bigger sizes of our Strathmore journals and Arches pads.
For paints, we dropped the Daniel Smith line due to difference of opinions with the manufacturer but we’re making up for it by adding more variations of M. Graham watercolors, as well as introducing new brands to our collection. The brands we’re eyeing this quarter are Winsor and Newton (both Cotman and Artist Grade), Sennelier and Holbein.
As for palettes, we introduced the DIY Altoids watercolor palette last quarter as well as the Cloverleaf box. This quarter we’re looking for more attractive alternatives to the Cloverleaf as well as lightweight enamel paintboxes.
For brushes, we are planning to introduce well-rounded sets of synthetic brushes as well as travel-friendly Kolinsky brushes.
