So for Christmas I got me an art in a box. Dru Blair has started doing these and they look like a good intro. The kit comes with stencils, paint, and a few friends to assist including a hard eraser, a scalpel, a dowel and a stirring stick as well as a high grade colour reference and 3 sheets of Dru Blair synthetic paper. I have been waiting to get my hands on some of that stuff. My first impression of the paper, not sure what yupo others have seen but it isn't yupo! I know you can get different grades but the finish is quite different. It is really more a card. Part of the kit includes access to training videos. The first is about 5 minutes long and takes about 10 minutes to paint. The paint is Createx Illustration. Here is a photo of the three friends that come with the box set.
