Any Indian Online Art/Craft Supply Stores?
There isn’t much activity going on my arty and crafty side, so i was going through my stash when i came across a set of paint brushes.
When my husband was on trip to Canada sometime back, he told me about this store that he saw (In Montreal), which was a wonderland to artists. I asked for a set of synthetic flat brushes when given a choice. I don’t want to talk about the price, but i swear that they are best ones that i have come across. There is this “Utterly Butterly” feeling when painting with them. The brush glides so smooth, mimicking the movements of my hand… its truly a pleasure to paint with them.
This drove me to see if there is any indian site that sells art and craft materials online, No Luck. There are some thousands of Websites across the world and some good bargains on ebay, but the shipping cost always discourages me. As of now, i think there is no website that sells art/craft material in india.
I checked the site of Pidilite, they have neatly organised all the products.
As for Fevicryl, they are planning to sell online and are in the process. Lets see….
The Camlin‘s site says about the products that are available from their stable and also the price range, but doesnt sell online.
I normally purchase paints/colours from Landmark and all other craft stuff from local shops. I dont have a problem going to a physical store and doing my purchase, I love that as i get to feel the product before i spend on it. But sometimes I just want to buy online for various reasons. Hope somebody comes up with a arty/crafty online store in india soon.
I am planning to make some ceramic beads this weekend. I think i have the basic stuff, ceramic powder and white glue. I got two acrylic colors and gold dust somewhere in my stash to experiment with. Will Post the pictures and if everything turns out well, i will also post a small tutorial next week.
I was thinking if there any art n craft blogs from people in india or of indian origin. If you know about a blog like that, please leave a message.
If any crafters from chennai stumbled upon my blog, do leave some comments…
I have to make a day trip to my parents place tomorrow, lots of travelling – have to charge my pod and also stuff some sudokus to kill the time.
Edited (22 Sept 09): Some of the online stores that i have found are in my craft supply page.
