Metallic Calligraphy Set
Jacquard’s 9-color collection makes a great gift for the Holidays!

Calligraphy is arguably the most enduring ancient art form and, in the age of social media, it is experiencing a major renaissance. At the same time, metallic and pearlescent colors have surged in popularity. Jacquard is proud to offer the widest assortments of these types of colors on the market (49 metallic/pearlescent pigments in the Pearl Ex line and 33 Lumiere acrylics). To embrace these converging trends, Jacquard worked with acclaimed calligrapher Joi Hunt to develop the Metallic Calligraphy Set. The set continues to inspire! It’s a top seller and makes a fabulous gift item for the holidays!

This is the perfect introduction to making custom, reflective inks, for calligraphers and watercolorists alike. It's easy--just mix the Pearl Ex and Gum Arabic powders with a little water (video below)! Instructions are included in the set as well as a short list of nibs that work well with Pearl Ex.

Sargent Art Flexible Clay
The Clay That Bends After Drying!

Flexible Clay is water based and air-drying. It dries translucent, and can bend with ease without breaking or cracking. This allows you to create thin, delicate shapes such as flower petals and stems. Once dry, the clay is posable but hardened, for maximum longevity. You may color the clay by mixing oil based colors and inks directly into wet clay as you work. They clay will dry after a period of approximately 24-48 hours, at which point, acrylic and tempera paints may be applied.
