TREKELL GIFT CERTIFICATE - ELECTRONIC
You know that they’re artistic, but have no idea what their preferred media is - or maybe they don’t even know what their preferred media is yet! Give them the gift of choice with one of our electronic gift certificates. Our gift cards, available in a variety of denominations, can either be emailed directly to the recipient or sent to your inbox so that you can print it out or forward it to them at a later date.
Is your favorite artist new to acrylic painting? Or perhaps they’ve never tried Trekell Brushes before? Either way, we’ve got the perfect gift for them. The Trekell Acrylic Brush Set includes 6 of our most popular synthetic brushes on both 10” and 6” handles.
If oil is more their speed, check out the Trekell Oil Brush Set! In it, we’ve combined our 6 top selling oil brushes on both 10” and 6” handles. The brushes in this set are a mix of natural and synthetic hair.
How about a set for the budding watercolorist?! Trekell’s Watercolor Brush Set includes 6 synthetic watercolor brushes on 6” handles. The set gives a great variety of marks, making every painting experience smooth and fun.
If the artist in your life is more advanced or maybe just a really big fan of our Trekell’s Pro Team Artists, one of our limited edition brush sets might be the gift that you’re looking for this holiday season. First up is Natalia Fabia. Her 8-piece brush set is made up of her favorite Trekell brushes with hot-pink handles, gold printing and gold ferrules. These synthetic brushes work with oil & acrylic and come with a sticker featuring the artist's artwork. This set also comes with a charm designed by Natalia (charms may vary).
Or perhaps they need a little Glenn in their life! Trekell Pro Team Artist, Glenn Arthur, has compiled his favorite synthetic Golden Taklon and Protégé brushes to create this Limited Edition Set. This 7-piece brush set - which works with all media - features maroon, gold and black, short handle brushes and comes with a sticker.
Designed with watercolor paint in mind - they work great with oil, acrylic, enamel and gouache paint too! - Trekell Pro Team Artist, Nick Runge, has released his first limited edition brush set. This set comes with 3 Protégé brushes on short, black handles with Nick's signature. Each set includes a sticker and a header card featuring the artist's artwork.
Not many people would visit an art supply site for a cuteness overload, but - oh my goodness! - how sweet are these?!? Our Trekell Mini Panels will make all your miniature dreams come true! A mini Gesso primed surface offered in 6 different sizes, and even a mixed panel pack that includes 2 panels of each size!
Looking for the perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite artist? Look no further! Our Trekell Brush Care Sample Sizes let them try out our Coconut Oil Soap (for water based media), Linseed Oil Soap (for oil paint) and our brush restorer before committing to full sized containers.
If electronics have taught us anything, it’s that the case is just as important as the tool. Paint brushes are no exception! Made from heavy-duty canvas, our Trekell Brush Case holds up to 15 brushes and zips closed for ultimate protection. Each case comes with the Trekell logo printed in silver on the front as a seal of quality.
Go big or go home! If you already know that they love or will love our Trekell Brush Restorer, grab one of these long lasting four ounce glass jars to lengthen the life of their most trusted tools. After cleaning their brush with a brush soap (don’t worry, we’ll talk about that next), the brush restorer should be applied and left to dry for the best effect.
For water based media brushes, our gentle Coconut Oil Soap washes away leftover paint, without leaving your favorite artist with a fumed-induced headache! Keep their Trekell brushes looking like they just came off the factory floor with this long lasting four ounce container.
Have an oil painter on your shopping list this year? Grab one of our Trekell Linseed Oil Soaps for their stocking. Not only will it preserve their brushes, it will also preserve their bank account. How, you might ask? Properly caring for paint brushes now will save them from having to buy new ones later!
If you are looking for a gift that tells a story - this is it! This limited edition Gamblin Reclaimed Earth paint set is made from literal “toxic sludge” leftover from the now defunct coal mines of the Industrial Revolution. Contaminated rainwater has been collected, processed and turned into something beautiful, sustainable and eco friendly. How cool is that?!
Is your favorite artist also an outdoorsy type? The invention of portable easels, such as our Pochade Boxes & Accessories make it easy for any genre painter to work outside. Plein air painting is simply the act of painting outdoors - historically 19th century, French impressionistic landscapes - but why stop there?!
No matter their media, most artists begin by drawing or sketching. Therefore, you really can’t go wrong with either General’s Drawing & Sketching Kit or their Drawing Pencil Kit. Both are wonderful collections that will be sure to get the creative juices flowing!
Golden offers a wide array of acrylic paint sets from Explorer to Principal to Professional. No matter where your artist is on their artistic journey, we have a set for them!
Professional, experienced, big-league, polished, practiced, qualified - if any or all of these words suit your favorite acrylic artist, you may want to consider investing in a Liquitex Acrylic Paint Set. This thick, high viscosity, pigment-rich professional acrylic color, is ideal for impasto and texture. With a high concentration of lightfast artist-quality pigment and a satin finish, these paints will give your favorite artist rich, permanent color, with crisp brush strokes and knife marks.
"Silver and gold, silver and gold…” Copper and Antique Gold too! These basic sets will introduce your favorite artist to the art of metal leafing. Each set includes 2 oz bottles of both Adhesive Size and Satin Sealer, brushes, burnishing cloth, one book of Composition Leaf and easy to follow instructions. Extra sheets are also available to purchase.
Primary, Secondary, Essentials, Primatak, Master’s Choice or all of the above - these watercolor sets are perfect for the watercolorist on your holiday shopping list this year. Formulated to meet and exceed the highest industry standards, every batch is analyzed for its performance qualities – lightfastness, color value, tinting strength, clarity, vibrancy, undertone, particle size, density and viscosity.
Gouache - besides being a really fun word to say - is a water-medium paint consisting of natural pigment, water, a binding agent, and sometimes additional inert material. Think opaque watercolor! Holbein Acryla Gouache does not have the same fragile surface as traditional gouache in gum arabic and is compatible with all other water soluble media regardless of origin. An ideal medium for amateurs to professionals.
Speaking of gouache - seriously, SO FUN to say - gouache, gouache, gouache! M. Graham Artists’ Gouache has been formulated with pure, Northwest honey for layered application without cracking. Balanced quantities of gum arabic and water are combined with large amounts of pigment to achieve a high degree of flow for strong brush strokes and direct, smooth application without loss of brilliance.
The perfect Michael Harding Oil Colours Introductory Set includes 6 Handmade Artists Oil Colors in 40mL tubes - Titanium White, Yellow Lake, Ultramarine Blue, Yellow Ochre Deep, Burnt Umber and Scarlet Lake.
Whether they’re an experienced painter or learning to lay down their first wash, Trekell has a Sennelier watercolor set for your favorite artist. For more than a century, Sennelier has been making some of the finest watercolor, offering shades that have uncommon depth and a brilliance that’s both subtle and bursting with a spark of life.
Wherever you choose, art supplies make great gifts and will empower the artist on your list to discover their best work!
