      I buy most of mine from them- and I use to make my own canvas when I went to college- I really need to buy the tools and do my own.

      I buy the Studio Series in Acrylic by the pints-
      but they sell every thing else there also.

    Irish, you have lots of questions. Why don't you put them in the Latest Questions category?

    Dick Blick is a good online supplier.

    I buy all of my supplies at www.dickblick.com. They have an excellent selection from which to choose, and their prices are great. ENJOY!

    I have to agree that for online purchases, Dick Blick is the most reliable and least expensive.  I have ordered from other places and either got something other than what I ordered, or did not receive the purchased item at all.  Dick Blick has gotten it right every time.

    I am fortunate that I live close to an art supply place that has an excellent price for canvases and many other art supplies, but when it comes to hard-to-find specialty items, I have to order it online.

    Since Dickblick is an American supplier of arts materials the international shipping maybe a tad too expensive, I've found amazon uk to be great for arts materials and pencils etc, but each to their own!!

    we can supply canvas, stretche bar and wood frame. But it is a pity, we only sale them in quantity, cause we are in china.

    hi Irish, you should try The Works on line, it is and English Company, and their stuff is soooooooo affordable it is good quality too, if you ring them they are very helpful also.

    I use Great Art supplies - they are UK based and they are good for hard to find things too. I've found it a very comprehensive site for all sorts of arty things :-)
