Brilliant pink is a luminous, intense pink perfect for catching the eye or for bright underpainting. It is a warm, clean, opaque colour with lots of zing.
Sap Green is a classic warm, dark green capable of a wide range of tones, from a light yellow green in a thin layer to a rich deep green when applied thickly.
King’s Blue Deep is designed as a deeper replacement for the historic pigment Smalt with a much improved lightfastness. It is a useful colour for architecture, interiors, accents and skies.
Manganese Violet is a deep, reddish violet that won’t overpower mixes. It creates natural tones with cool and warm colours. It was discovered in 1868 as a good alternative to Cobalt Violet Deep.
Our first ever tote bag was created exclusively for Battersea Affordable Art Fair 2018, however, due to popular demand we have now released this limited edition, elegant bag for sale online.

The Jackson’s Glass Palette is simple and useful – it’s easy to clean and you can mix colours accurately by choosing a coloured sheet of paper to place under the palette demonstrating how your choices will interact with a coloured ground. The smoothness of the surface also means no paint gets lost by absorption, allowing you to collect all of it on your brush or palette knife, and the surface will not damage your brushes in any way. This is unlike wood palettes where brush hairs can get caught in the pores of the surface causing them to get damaged.
In order to guarantee the safety of this tempered glass product the Jackson’s Art Supplies team did a series of tests to establish each palette’s strength. This included dropping it from shoulder height onto a concrete floor, dropping it so that it landed on a corner, hitting it with a hammer (the hammer bounces off so don’t try at home) and throwing it in the air. While we do not recommend doing any of these tests, they do show that the glass is very unlikely to break and is incredibly strong.

Fine plaster is perfect for casting, moulding and sculpting to create delicate and unusual effects. It is light in weight and can be carved into once dry as well as being used to accurately pick up textures and details.
The powder is fine and soft so that it can pick up delicate details when making a plaster mould of something, as differentiated from casts and sculpting where the final object is the plaster so it would need to be stronger.
