Jakar International Ltd, suppliers of stationery, artist materials and craft products, is proud to welcome ROSA Gallery Fine Art Watercolour Paints to its range. The professional artist quality paints are designed and produced in Ukraine using high-quality materials, modern specialised equipment and rigorous testing to ensure the quality of its products. Jakar International Ltd is the sole distributors for the artists’ quality range in the UK and Ireland.

Full pan 2.5ml sets of 12, 14 and 21 classic colours or specialist selections are available in metal boxes, with RRPs from £24.99 to £44.99. 2.5ml full pans, RRP £2.49 each, are also available individually in a choice of 60 colours, as well as empty metal boxes for personal colour selection in indigo and turquoise for 12 or 21 full and semi-pans, with RRPs of £9.99 and £19.99. The metal cases are lightweight for easy transport, featuring a thumb ring beneath to keep the set stable in your hand. The cases have two integrated surfaces for colour mixing and a blank watercolour paper insert to paint swatches for exact colour matches. The same 60 individual colours are also available in 10ml tubes, RRP £3.99, and a wooden gift box containing 14 assorted colours, RRP £49.99.

Jakar International is also the sole distributor in the UK and Ireland for the Italian brand Stifflex® artWORK sketching books and artwork pads for sketching, drawing and painting (so-named for their ‘stiff and flexible’ nature). The Stifflex artWORK collection is ideal to use with different techniques from dry to wet, for markers or sketching. All artWORK products are produced with cellulose certified FSC® from forests managed according to rigorous environmental, social, and economic standards.

Developed for anyone with a passion for art, the artWORK book leaves space for observations, imagination, creations, sketches and designs. A multifunctional pocket in the back is ready to store small documents and notes. The pocket flap can double as a practical bookmark. The sewn and bound artWORK book, RRP £19.99, has a hard cover and elastic closure, rounded corners and can be opened at 180°. It is a handy 15 x 21 cm format and includes 128 blank pages in 160 gram paper, 32 dotted pages in 120 gram paper, and 32 pages of semi-transparent pages in 95 gram perforated tracing paper.

The 24 x 33 cm spiral bound artWORK pad has micro perforated sheets, a semi-hard cardboard cover and a thick, hard backboard. It’s available in three versions - Sketch, Draw, and Paint - as well as special versions for Watercolour, Marker, Manga and Pastel. Prices from RRP £19.99 to £29.99.
