Color Wheel - Made in Philomath, OR
America's best-selling color wheels are made less than 10 miles from The Drawing Board. The Color Wheel Company makes this very familiar color wheel - in regular, small, and HUGE - as well as dozens of other color mixing guides and tools to help artists choose their color palettes.
Cradled Wood Panels - Made in Salem, OR
As an alternative to foreign-made canvas, Oregon's home-grown easel manufacturer started making high-quality cradled birch panels. These panels come in standard and custom sizes and are unprimed, exposing a soft wood grain which you can incorporate into your artwork (try clear gesso!).
MTN Color: Hardcore, 94 and Alien
The Drawing Board is the only local source for this top-shelf spraypaint. The colors are numerous, the paint is thick and luscious, the caps are interchangeable so you can control the width of your spray. This is spraypaint for artists! Color charts: 94 (matte), Alien (satin) and Hardcore (glossy)
The Drawing Board carries a variety of fancy paper. Full sheets of gorgeous, hand-made paper from around the world, in all kinds of patterns and textures. We also have a wall of hundreds of sample swatches, so you can see and touch the paper before you special order.
We also order stationary paper.
The Drawing Board can special order small packs of colored cardstock, pre-cut cards and envelopes, in dozens of colors.
