Black Friday Weekend.

It's our biggest, best sale ever.

We don't usually do sales.

But we don't usually eat three pounds of mashed potatoes, either. It's a special time of year, when we break our usual routines in the spirit of celebration. And in that spirit, we've loaded up the shop with our best Black Friday weekend deals of all time.

Scroll down to snag discounts on our favorite gifts, our lowest price ever on professional watercolor blocks, our new artist-designed Antigravity Tote Bag (free with select gift sets), and dozens more deals up to 60% off list price. These special offers are valid only until Monday, Nov. 29 at 11:59 pm, and only while supplies last.

From the Vault

60% off Schmincke Semi-Precious Watercolor Set

These colors don't exist.

Not anymore, at least. These three Schmincke watercolors were part of the "Semi-Precious Pigments" limited edition in 2018. Schmincke sourced three semi-precious gemstones from three different parts of the world, ground them with traditional stone mills, then made professional-quality watercolor from them. They sold out years ago, but when Schmincke offered us the very last stock, rediscovered in the stockroom of a defunct art supply store, we jumped at the chance to offer them for a limited time.

This weekend only, we're offering a killer discount on the set of 3 semi-precious watercolors: just $46.95, 60% off the original list price. It's a great chance to experience three pigments that most artists have never seen.

Only $46.95 for a limited time.
(That's 60% off list price.)

Only $46.95 for a limited time. (That's 60% off list price.)

What's included:

5 mL tube of Lapis Lazuli, the legendary blue of the Renaissance

5 mL tube of Green Porphyry, a bluish-green quartz from France
