The easiest way to make your painting look better, by @ehjstudios.  If you varnish with Gamvar, you won't need to wash your brush. Just wipe off excess varnish and allow any residual #varnish to dry in the brush. .
#Gamvar is so easily dissolved that you can simply soak the brush in varnish for a few minutes to reactivate the dried varnish. Voila! You're ready to varnish again. If you prefer to clean the brush, simply rinse in Gamsol and pat dry on a paper towel. Final washing with soap and water won't be necessary. With Gamvar, things are easy. Gamvar is excellent on acrylic paintings too! .

Philip Flax has been our mentor and inspiration. For over 60 years he has lived and breathed Flax, and he deserves all the credit for building our brand's strength in the Bay Area. In 1959 dad went out on his own with Philip's Art Supplies, and then folded it back into Flax Artists Materials in 1966. Hey dad, Happy Father's Day! We love you!

This was our first mural involvement, by @herakut. It was a pleasure to meet both Hera (@hera_herakut) and Akut (@akut_herakut). This post is for posterity. The mural was done in 2012 and now with our old store location on Market St in SF gone, taggers hit it last week. And in the coming months it will be obscured by new walls. To see it, go to the corner of McCoppin and Stevenson off Valencia. For more info about this awesome mural, see our blog post http://flaxart.com/flax-canvas/herakut-mural/. "When we let go of our fears...we are safe". #mural #muralart #streetart #herakut #montanacans #sfgentrification #wallspacesf #flaxart #wherecreativepeopleshop
