ExaClair, the UK supplier of Decopatch, Clairefontaine, Avenue Mandarine and Maildor will showcase a wide variety or new and inventive products at the CHSI Stitches that's designed to feed the growing adult crafting trend.
Products sure to be popular with this group of crafters are:
Clairefontaine's butterflies and edgy tattoo colouring-in books
Clairefontaine's Paper Touch ribbons, pads, stickers and shadow papers ideal for scrapbooking and card making
'Kirigami' (the traditional Asian art of cutting) books useful for making greeting cards, book marks and general artwork
Clairefontaine's new Fine Art Manga paper will also feature on this year's stand. Available in a variety of sizes, the books have added-value features such as pre-printed scales to help artists draw comic strips, and ultra-smooth paper suited to the traditional Indian ink popular in this niche hobby.
Also from the Fine Art collection will be the new Paint ON multi-technique pads. The range's 250gsm paper is suitable for acrylic painting, gouache ink, dry or oil pastels, collages and dry techniques. “These multi-media pads are a very clever and affordable way for budding artists to delve into a wide range of mediums without having to buy a pad for every type,” says Nick Parry, Head of Art and Craft at ExaClair.
“All-in-all, we're confident we'll have a great selection of products that respond to the latest trends, meeting the ever evolving needs of hobbyists and crafters.”
