Add vibrant color to any sketch, journal, cartoon, illustration and more with Koi® Coloring Brush Pens. The transparent ink colors blend easily to create myriad hues and effects. Use the colorless blender pen to create seamless washes and color gradations. Make fine, medium or bold brush strokes by changing the amount of pressure to the nib. The odorless, water-based solvent facilitates smooth blending and layering of colors.
The Amazing Air Activity Set, from Testors®, is a simple to use airbrush system that you can spray on just about anything from small household projects, models and craft projects. The set includes five acrylic colors, airbrush, canned air and accessories. Its broad stroke spray allows for large coverage areas while keeping a consistent and professional finish.
Kiss-Off® Stain Remover removes stains on the spot. It is unique because it needs just water to remove tough stains, including grease, lipstick, blood, grass stains, wine, coffee and more! No harmful fumes, no liquid to spill, so it is safe to use at home, office, school, traveling, etc. Its convenient size makes it handy to take along anywhere a stain might find you.
The School-Master Kiln Series was designed in conjunction with the One-Touch™ Intuitive Kiln Control specifically with busy school teachers in mind. One touch and you are ready to fire the bisque and glaze programs most often used in K–12 schools. No programming is necessary, simple adjustments are easy (like cone level, heating and cooling speed, hold time and delay time), yet sophisticated programming is also possible. Two different furniture kits are available as well.
