We decided to bring these demonstrations of delicious natural art materials from Wallace Seymour Fine Art Products to you at home.
In this live webinar I demonstrated tips and techniques for making your own pastels, while another fine artist, Andrew Field, shared the secrets of mixing your own acrylic and oil-based paints using a muller and glass plate to create signature colours and hues. It was lovely to have a friendly and enthusiastic audience of art lovers from as far afield as Canada and Japan – a big Thank You to everyone who joined our zoom tutorial!

Wallace Seymour make beautiful quality fine art materials, specializing in rare and ancient colours used by the masters such as Turner and Rembrandt. They are a British company based in Yorkshire and run by artists Pip Seymour and Rebecca Wallace. They have a real passion for producing quality products. Their range of materials can be found at ArtReq and you can order online at Art Req Ltd.
