You may think you don’t need another sparkly gel pen, but you would be wrong. We’ve seen a lot of gel pens, but these new sparkling iridescent metallic pens from @pentelofamerica are impressive. They are ultra-glittery, have amazing coverage, and the ink color magically looks different on dark or light paper. Come in and try them for yourself. You’ll be hooked!

A successful test of @goldenpaints Silkscreen Medium! Use a 1:1 ratio of acrylic paint to the medium. We used the new colors from Golden’s heavy body acrylic paints. (Love those pastels!) Check out our stories to see how it’s done!

POP into both our Oakland and San Francisco locations for these new pop up cards from @lovepop! FLAX is your go-to shop for greeting cards. We carefully select beautiful and unique cards you won't find other places. That's why we are excited to introduce you to @lovepop! More than a card, these are intricate 3D scultpures designed by naval engineers and then handcrafted in the art form of sliceform kirigami. When a text isn't enough, do something unexpected and send a Lovepop.
