We have quite a few more new products available in the shop now! In my process of gradually replacing all of my Kryolan brand products, I am phasing in some fantastic new brushes from Loew-Cornell, as well as a growing assortment of palette refills for both Paradise and Wolfe palettes.
This new brush shown below is one of the specialty shaped brushes, in the same line as Loew-Cornell’s Flora and double filbert brushes. This “Flora Round” brush is designed specifically for creating teardrops and double-dip petal shapes! At first glance it looks like a typical round brush, but the point of it does extend out longer and more narrow, allowing you to paint a nice, crisp point. I hope to play with mine this week and post some photos of what it can do.

Above is our new 1/2″ Loew-Cornell flat brush. I use my 1/2″ flat brushes frequently when painting with one-stroke cakes, when I want to only pick up a couple of the colors in a split cake. My new One Stroke Face Painting Book (which I’ve just re-stocked as well!) shows many designs that use this brush to pick up 2-3 colors.
Below are photos of the Loew-Cornell round brushes we are now carrying, in a #2, #3, and #5. Their golden taklon fibers are durable and precise. The handles on these brushes below, and the two brushes above, are made of a smoky gray acrylic, which helps them hold up well to moisture.

I’ve also now added Loew-Cornell’s “Maxine’s Foamie” foam applicators! The foam heads on these are about 3/4″ in diameter, and the handle is made of wood.

Unfortunately my shipment from Wolfe was missing the black and purple refills, so I should be getting those in soon!
Now that you’ve sat through all of the new product news, I’ll leave you with a little painty inspiration! Here’s a design I painted on my arm last week. First I did the monarch alone, and later added the background….
I’ve also been working on water drops these past couple weeks. Above I added water to the leaves, and below I tried to stretch my artistic brain to make a drop that lies over two different colors! 😉
Thanks for stopping by!
