Re: UK and other European artists - pencil, paper, supply info

I have bought pastels and paints: watercolor and acrylic,inktense pencils and watercolor pencils and brushes at www.artifolk.com they are in UK with worldwide delivery.
I have also shopped online at www.creativ-discount.de in Germany with delivery to EU and UK, bought watercolor pencils and acrylic paints, mixed media supplies, brushes.

Re: UK and other European artists - pencil, paper, supply info

Wow this is an old thread :O

I generally just order from https://www.jacksonsart.com/

The site is easy to use, I can change currency to see it in euros, prices are very reasonable, selection is huge, postages aren't that bad and I've never had any problems with getting my orders. I also like the reward point system.

I mostly order:
- Polychromos singles
- More rare pencils like Cretacolor Nero
- Watercolors (Rembrandt)
- Porcelain palettes which all arrived in perfect condition and very well packed
- Brushes (Escoda and Pro Arte Prolene synthetics)
- A lot of different papers: Hahnemühle (Anniversary, Bamboo, Britannia, Nostalgie), Fabriano 5 HP (sadly the surface has changed), Saunders Waterford HP, Bockingford HP, Botanical Smooth HP, Strathmore Bristol, Winsor & Newton and Daler Rowney cartridge papers

The thing that pleases me the most is their open stock Polychromos selection and their paper selection. You can not get Polychromos in Finland other than in sets. Papers also cost an arm and a leg here in Finland. A certain Finnish supplier has pads of Hahnemühle Cezanne in HP surface but the price for a 24x32cm pad of 10 sheets costs 25,50 euros. The Bamboo pads are just about the same but in Jackson's the same size pad of Bamboo costs 13,18 euros.

So....I can either buy 1 pad for 25 euros and pay Finnish postages (which tend to be ~5 euros or more) or order 2 pads for 26 euros and pay UK postages which are around 12 euros if I order some other stuff up to 50 euros total. So yeah....Finnish prices really bum me out.

One thing I'm worried about is Brexit though. If they go under toll fees and such...yikes! But I guess it's too early to tell.

Was that comment to me? Thank you in that case! Do you have any homepage where you post your work? Or is it a section here where you have your own pictures uploaded as a small gallery?

I'm still a a little confused by this forum and don't know exactly how it works and whats ok to talk about in threads and whats not, I don't want to hijack a thread so sorry for of topic question!

Yes, this comment was meant for you. And no, I don't have all that. I am at the other end of the age range so that would make no sense in my case. I always am interested to learn and you are such a tremendous source. Thanks.
