Art Materials Suppliers List

(a work in progress! )

Welcome to the list of suppliers of the materials I use to create my paintings. I am
constantly evaluating my painting materials to ensure they are the best for my style and painting methods.

The list is provided solely as a service to artists who wish to find stockists of the materials I use. It is comprised of suppliers that we are sure stock the products shown. We have been in contact with many of them and in some cases they have specifically ordered in the product(s) for you.

The list is arranged by country (alphabetically). My aim is to make it as accurate and comprehensive as possible, but if you have additional information please let me know and contact me through my contact form. If any suppliers, wholesale or retail, big or small would like to be included on the list please let me know your contact details and the materials I use that you stock. Many thanks.

• Gatorfoam ¾” white board:

I have found a supplier in Chicago that can supply large sheets of Gatorfoam and ship them around the country. I’m currently encouraging them to sell the cut sizes that I use i.e. 24” x 24” & 24” x 16”. I will put the information here if they agree to do so. Their contact details are:

Genesis Art Supplies
2417 N Western Ave
Chicago
IL 60647
Phone:     1-800-937-4278
Website: www.artsupply.com

To go directly to the Gatorfoam page try:

Alternatively, you may be able to convince your local art supply store into stocking the Gatorfoam board available from Genesis Art Supplies.

Another alternative is a board available from Jerry’s Artarama. An artist friend, Kathy from Canada, told us about it. There are 2 sizes (16” x 24” & 24” x 32”), called:

Jerry’s Lightweight Watercolor Boards

described as being: 3/4” thick extra sturdy boards which feature a white coated paper surface on both sides and a foam center.

To go directly to the website page try:

http://tinyurl.com/25sym97

Kathy has tried the board with the Lukas tape (see below) and found that it works very well with good adhesion to secure the hot-pressed paper and no warping of the board. So, with Gatorfoam being rather tricky to source in small sizes and quantities, this could be an ideal alternative. If you try it let us know how you get on too.
