ART supplies reviews section

Hi everyone, I was thinking several times to review my supplies, at least some of them, but I didn't found it suitable to do so. I was thinking, on one hand, it's providing advert for some companies, while for others it will make certain nuisance.
None of the companies are related to the AF (Artist Forum), however it certainly would spare some of money for new artists when they are hunting for supplies. Also, American brands are not common in Europe nor are European in America.

I talk about the products I use in hopes of sharing the good ones with those who are looking for the same kind of product and complaining about those that are not meeting my needs in hopes to find a better alternative.

Right now I'm not at all pleased with the mediums I'm using. I've been using Walnut Alkyd Medium and find that it leaves a stickiness on the canvas that takes months to dry. It also leaves drips very easily and you have to be super careful not to use too much. The other medium I have tried is Wilson Bickford Clear Glazing Medium. My issues with that is it turns dark. It says it's clear but I beg to differ. So I'm looking for a good medium to use with oils and any suggestions will be appreciated.

If that is the kind of product critiquing you are talking about I don't see any problems with it. What the management company has issues with is people advertising their business or product for free because there are paid advertisers supporting the site.

I like the idea. There are sooo many choices for products, it would be great to have a place where people can discuss the pros and cons of their favorites and least favorites, I may learn something! (?)

Grateful to Jesus for everything!

I like the idea too. I'm always curious to know what art products others use.

I like the idea...I use a lot of different pencils and markers, and there are good ones and crappy ones.

New artists find out the hard way (like I did) just which brands to avoid, and which ones might be worth a little extra $$.
