Midwest Studio's Birch Artist Panels
Possibilities as limitless as your imagination...

Midwest Studio’s Birch Artist Panels are high-quality and cut with precision. Each studio grade panel goes through a rigorous inspection process to ensure they are free from material defects. These high-density panels are perfect for all mediums and artistic levels. The cross lamination of plies helps prevent warping when introduced to moisture. The panels are not prepped, primed, or cradled; this allows for artistic freedom and easy framing!

Midwest Studio's Birch Artist Panels are available in the following sizes and thicknesses:

  • 6mm: 6”x12”, 8”x10”, 9”x12”, 12”x12”, 12”x24”
  • 9mm: 6”x12”, 8”x10”, 9”x12”, 12”x12”, 11”x14”, 12”x24”, 16”x20”
  • 12mm: 12”x12”, 11”x14”, 12”x24”, 16”x20”

Koala Tools
NEW Thick “Bear Claw” Triangular Colored Pencils

Soft, Water-Soluble Core - 12 color pack

These chunky wood color pencils feel great in your hand. They were designed to be slightly shorter than standard thin pencils to create a perfect balance as they are used. This unique 12-pack includes essential colors like Peach and Brown for flesh tones, White for highlights and Magenta for a nice galaxy palette (along with Blue, Sapphire and Black). The color cores are thick and soft, so coloring, drawing and shading require very little pressure. Easily blend colors and create intense gradients with a wet brush.

The Bear Claw’s Thick Triangular shape promotes a healthy tripod grip and is great for kids. The reddish, natural wood finish with a glossy color dip for each color make these a great-looking, premium quality pencil set.
