the best. website. EVER.
Amien, the Art Materials Information and Education Network, has a forum where you can ask questions about your art materials and get thorough, straightforward answers. I don't know if I'm the only one, but I have so many questions, all the time, about my art materials. What's the best way to adhere mixed media to a canvas? What does "archival quality" mean, anyway? What happens if I use cheap oil paint? Does the expensive oil paint really make that much of a difference, or do the benefits stop mattering after a while? Does it make a difference if I use odorless paint thinner? ...and now I have someone to ask, besides the clerks at Dick Blick.
